Referees Sports Bar

Whatever it is, tequila probably can't fix it, but it's worth a shot! - Jimmy Buffett

Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

Referees Sports Bar is a chain restaurant in Mexico.

They do a great job with their food and service, and since we are in tequila country, their list of tequilas at the bar is stellar.

Referees Sports Bar

Just down from our hotel in Jesus Maria was a Referees Sports Bar.

It looked clean, inviting and modern.

Taking a look at their menu, we decided to give it a try.

Notice that there are TVs everywhere!

Tequila menu #2

This menu lists blancos and reposados available.

Blancos are not aged at all, and reposados are aged from 60 days to 364 days in white oak barrels from Jim Beam bourbon or Jack Daniels whiskey barrels.

Even though blancos are often fiery, on this trip we learned to enjoy them for the complexity of flavor they offered.

Reposados, a bit golden and lots smoother have always been our favorite.

Blancos here run from just under $3USD a glass to about $45 a bottle.

Reposados are $3USD a glass to $50USD a bottle.

Our bill this evening

We purchased an order of mini burgers, 2 beers, a bottle of water and an order of 10 chipotle chicken wings.

Total (without tip) was $12USD.

Service was good, food was delicious, watching sports was fun and you certainly had your choice of tequilas to sip, should you care to do so!
