Choza de Margarita in Epcot

Choza de Margarita in Epcot

There is no shortage of random food stands strewn across EPCOT Park, at Walt Disney World. Whether you’re visiting for an EPCOT festival or just looking for something quick to eat that won’t require a long wait in line, there are options featuring every cuisine the World Showcase can think up. Some of the outdoor kitchens, however, are just better than others. That’s where Choza de Margarita at EPCOT comes in. 

Choza de Margarita is a little margarita stand right next to the Mexico Pavilion and open during EPCOT park hours from 11:00 AM- 9:00 PM daily. Small but mighty, Choza de Margarita offers street tacos, guacamole, drinks and more. Perfect for a quick snack or light lunch, you can grab food here that is portable and budget friendly. Its an outdoor kiosk with no seating, but is adjacent to several standing tables, and the Mexico Pavilion, which offers more tables, and ledges to sit on. Also, the portability of the food, makes it easy to grab food and walk anywhere to settle in for a snack, or drink.

Mexican Food at EPCOT

While there is no shortage of Mexican Food at EPCOT, it is sometimes tough to nail down the quality, or stomach waiting in long lines. We’ve had both great and sub par foods at La Hacienda de San Angel. And always grab the empanadas at La Cantina de San Angel when the lines aren’t insane. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a nice sit down Mexican restaurant at Disney World, then the San Angel Inn Restaurante is nice, but ‘t s so dark it’s sometimes tough to see what you’re eating. As such, this brings us back to Choza de Margarita, where you always know what you’re getting, it’s simple, easy and authentic.

Choza de Margarita Menu

Choza de Margarita serves 5 dishes, Empanadas De Barbacoa, Tostada de Pollo, Guacamole, Elote Street Corn, and Tacos de Conchinita. Each comes in a little dish, that is portable, and gives you enough food for a serving size.

Tacos de Cochinita

This  Taco dish includes tender Citrus marinated Pulled Pork served on Corn Tortillas with pickled Red Onions and a Mango Habanero Relish with a side of Corn Esquites. This dish costs $12.25 and if you’re looking for something light, it’s shareable. 

We loved all of these and I will say they are a little on the spicy side. To me that is a great thing, but I know some people try to stay away from the spicy stuff. The side of corn esquites that comes with the tacos and empanadas is to die for. I could eat a whole bowl of that stuff.

Guacamole

This is a traditional avocado Guacamole topped with Mango and Pumpkin Seeds. Served with Tortilla Chips. And runs $11. Luckily the guac is big enough to share. And comes topped with mango chutney and pumpkin seeds really kind of brought it to another level.

Empanada de Barbacoa

One of our favorite dishes, you can grab Empanadas filled with Barbacoa Beef, topped with Chipotle Sauce, Crema Mexicana and Queso Fresco. Served with a side of Corn Esquites. These are the most expensive food on the menu at $13, but we think it’s worth it. 

We love empanadas and it’s by far one of the most portable Mexican foods. They are also a heartier food, so makes for a great light lunch. While Choza de Margarita only offers the meat version, you can also get just cheese empanadas at La Cantina de San Angel just across the walking path. 

Street corn at Flower and Garden Festival

Elote

Another really portable food option is the corn on the cob. This is to die for Elote street corn and while it may not constitute a full meal, well worth trying! Sweet Corn on the Cob smothered with Chipotle Aioli, Queso Cotija and Tajin Chile-lime Powder. At $8 it makes a great side dish or snack, to hold you over until your next meal. Lots of flavors here. 

Tostada de Pollo

A classic Mexican dish, the Tostada de Pollo is a Crispy Corn Tortillas with Black Beans and Chipotle Chicken. Garnished with Crema Mexicana, Shredded Lettuce and Queso Cotija.

A little less portable than the other things on this menu, we loved the flavors here, and they are so much better than some of the lamp warmed festival tostadas we’ve had. The cost is $11 and these could be okay as a meal if you got a side here.

Choza de Margarita Drinks

By far the biggest reason that there is always  a line at this Mexican booth at EPCOT, are the drinks. Hand-crafted, these are some of the best Margaritas at Disney World. They serve a wide variety of margaritas, both frozen and on the rocks.

Signature Margaritas 

Signature Margaritas range between $17-$20, and combine elevated ingredients to make some of the best ones we’ve had. With flavors like Blood Orange, Cucumber and Jalapeno, these come rimmed with salts and powders and really pack a punch. 

Frozen Margaritas

The frozen margaritas at Choza de Margarita are a little cheaper between $13-$15 dollars each. They are also everything you would expect from a frozen margarita. Lime, Mango, and Strawberry are the classic flavors offered, or you can grab the Fiesta Margarita which is a combination of all three flavors. We  got the Fiesta Margarita, which is a mix of all three frozen flavors they offer, Wild Strawberry, Classic Lime and Passion Mango. It was pretty delicious and easily sipable. 

Conga Mocktail (Non-Alcoholic)

In our constant quest for really great Mocktails at Disney World, we were so thrilled to see that there was a Mexican Mocktail at Epcot that we could grab for G.  The Conga  is a non-alcoholic frozen drink made with Mexican Fruit Punch made from Orange, Pineapple and Lemon Juice. Also very delicious! And only $6.

Beers

And if you’re just looking to grab a beer, you can count on some of the best Mexican beers available. Including Hercules Lagermaiz, Dos Equis Lager, and Michelada. From $10-$13 each. 

Choza de Margarita Cost

Needless to say, when you’re in EPCOT and buying things from all the outdoor kitchen booths across the park, it’s easy to see those dollars add up! As such we’d say, you won’t be paying more here than anywhere else. We’re typically paying about the same for a martini in the France pavilion. That said, food wise, these are authentic little dishes, that definitely hit the spot when you need a snack or meal. And you won’t find better Margaritas, unless you’re actually at a Disney Lounge at one of the resorts. Food dishes range between $8-$13. And drinks range from about $10-$20. All in all the cost was the same we would find anywhere else. 

Choza de Margarita Review

So what did we think of Choza de Margarita? We really loved it! It’s definitely one of the better food and drink kiosks at EPCOT, and they are open all year round. A few things to keep in mind….. it is outside. So no air conditioning. And there is no seating. The lines can get long, but they go fast. The food is spicy, not crazy-I’m-crying-because-my-mouth-is-on-fire spicy, but it is spicy, in my opinion, as Mexican food should be. Hopefully, you find something on this menu that you love. For us, it was a great experience and definitely makes the list of foods to grab when we’re looking for Mexican at EPCOT Park. Enjoy!
