An enduring Houston icon, drive-thru margarita bars are a Space City tradition. Sometimes, a margarita is immediately required, and these cheap, sugary slushies make it happen in the easiest way possible.

The legality of driving with booze in the car is a tight line to walk, and these Houston-area drive-thru daiquiris each tackle the issue in different ways. Most of the time,a piece of Scotch tape stuck over the top of the straw hole of the cup is used to "seal" the container, and other times, you'll pour the booze yourself (via tiny bottles) into a giant cup of slush for the perfect mix.

Use this map as a guide to the city's booziest drive-thru gems, serving up gallon-sized frozen drinks, margs garnished with sour gummies, and so much more. Drinking and driving is definitely still illegal, so wait until you're parked to enjoy these boozy slushy delights.

Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

New Orleans D & W

Copy Link

Maybe skip the food, but head to New Orleans D&W for crazy friendly service and crazy strong daiquiris in flavors like “Twerk,” a blend of passionfruit, watermelon, and orange cream.

Chacho's

Copy Link

Unlike some of the other spots on this list, Chacho’s has an actual Mexican restaurant inside that some consider to be a Houston staple. The pina coladas here are perfectly strong, and Chacho’s is open 24 hours, which makes it a super popular spot for late night drunchies.

Java Jo'z

Copy Link

Jell-O shots here are served in literal giant shot injection vessels. Enough said. If that's (somehow) not appealing, go for one of the cheekily-named boozy slushies, like the Swamp Water (hurricane flavored slush with green apple) or a frozen rum & coke.

W Grill Margaritas To-Go

Copy Link

W Grill Margaritas To Go serves their margaritas in five sizes. The granddaddy of them all is the Texas Size – get one gallon of traditional lime, peach, passionfruit, or raspberry margarita for $45.99. For folks who prefer their drinks on the rocks, W Grill has those too.

The Eskimo Hut

Copy Link

This mini chain knows how to spice up the weekdays – Tuesdays are “Triple Shot Tuesdays” and Wednesdays are “Double Shot Wednesdays.” Add all that extra booze to a Fuzzy Memory (cherry, peach & mango) or a Crimson Tide (hurricane punch mixed with grape) for the most potent kind of brain freeze.

Daiquiri Shack

Copy Link

Examples of drink names here include the Leg Spreada (passionfruit), Thug Passion (cherry, strawberry, raspberry & Mai Tai mix) and Back Dat Ass Up (strawberry, banana, pina colada), so pick your poison accordingly and probably leave the kids at home.

Frio To Go

Copy Link

This drive through booze shop has a seriously huge menu at reasonable prices, and enough frozen booze to keep you drunk for weeks. Try a margarita, Mai Tai, or hurricane, and bring a few lush friends to take on the 128-oz "full tank" together.

Prime Daiquiri

Copy Link

This drive-thru daiquiri destination serves 20 different ice-cold margaritas and daiquiris, ranging from spiked lemonade and mango to a take on the Long Island iced tea. Need to take a break from being behind the wheel and drink it right now? Prime Daiquiri is the perfect spot to park and take a seat at a patio.

Bourbon St. Daiquiris

Copy Link

A gigantic 32-ounce cup of margarita will only set drinkers back $9 at this daiquiri destination, which serves up drinks in flavors like cotton candy and the Obama, a mix of strawberry, White Russian, and blue raspberry flavors.

Daiquiri Island

Copy Link

In addition to the slushies, Daiquiri Island offers candy cups, which allow drinkers to double up on their daily intake of sugar with a bunch of gummies and other sugary candies atop a cup of Liquid Marijuana, a mix of pineapple and blue curacao, or the Mexican-inspired Tamarindo garnished with chamoy.
