Thousands fill Sunken Gardens for the KISS Margarita Pour Off.

Making the star of the show: a margarita on the rocks.

The Margarita Pour Off hosted by 99.5 KISS hit its 30th birthday Saturday, a sure testimony to San Antonio’s love of this classic cocktail.

The occasion drew thousands of margarita lovers who wanted to enjoy a series of variations of the drink in the sun-filled Sunken Gardens. They also snacked on smoked turkey legs, chicken on a stick topped with a pickled jalapeño, corn dogs, fajitas and roasted corn on the cob while listening to the bands.

Chicken on a stick: Just say yes.

When the final drop of tequila had been consumed, the winners of the pour off were announced:

  • Best margarita: Some Beach, 2831 N.W. Loop 410. The gentlemen’s club had a cucumber-jalapeño margarita.
  • First runner-up: Two Step Restaurant and Cantina, 9840 N. Loop 1604 W. The restaurant offered a traditional margarita.
  • People’s choice: Pericos, various locations
  • Best-decorated booth: Matamoros, 12844 I-10 W.

The hard job of judging margaritas.
