It was an enjoyable process hitting the town and discovering the wide range of local Bloody Marys. With so many options and flavors each stop was fun and delicious. Keep in mind that bartender makes a big difference in drinks and that flavor may vary slightly at each location based on who is mixing it up. There were more places that were on the list to try but we just couldn’t make them all, although we enjoyed trying.
3709 Gregory St
Optional salt and spice, this is a great Bloody Mary. Delicious and garnished with a slice of lemon and lime. Six, yes six, olives slain by plastic swords and the happy hour price puts the Whiskeyta Bloody Mary at the top of the list. Great flavor and a great bargain. Light food options, classy atmosphere, and the best restrooms. Friday happy hour even has free food and giveaways!

Stick’s wins the day mixing up Bloody Mary’s that dreams are made of. Salted rim, lemon and lime with 4 olives and made with Zing Zang. The bacon verson comes with 2 slices of bacon and mixed with Bacon brand vodka. For half the price it’s understandable to go for the regular version which is also amazing! The best part? They will serve you one as early as 7am! That’s hard to find.

Presentation is what one would expect from a good Bloody Mary. Celery, olives, a wedge of lime, made with Zing Zang, and at a great price! Enjoy the classic or their signature version, The Brewer’s, which is made with Jagermeister, Left Hand Milk Stout, and bacon. The Brewer’s has some kick to it. Fun atmosphere and great food options.
Price: $3.50 Brewer’s: $6.50
Iron Horse Pub
615 8th St
Love the Iron Horse Pub. There’s always something going on there and it’s a Wichita Falls staple in the community. Their version of the beverage presents well with olives, lime, and a salted rim. Solid flavor that stands out from all others. Not for the weak, this Bloody Mary has some kick to it for sure. Pool tables and plenty of room to move around. Great patio and always great people.
Fuzzy’s Taco Shop
2611 Plaza Pkwy #305
Hands down the best presentation. So many options. You can choose 16 ounces and 18 ounces with the standard vodka version or the Bloody Maria with tequila and a jalapeño. Both versions come with olives and optional salted rim. Fuzzy’s has a fun atmosphere with local art, music, and a patio area to enjoy the upcoming fall weather.
Price: $8.00 .. ouch….
2601 10th St Rear House
Served in a tropical glass with a lime wedge. Great flavor and perfectly spiced! It doesn’t come with olives but they are available upon request. It’s a tad too small and naked at this price point to ease the pain of your hangover… They have great margaritas and great mexican food. The bar area boasts multiple TV’s with music and sports options.
2719 Southwest Pkwy
The Parkway Bloody Mary does not make a great first impression. Dressing consists of a salted rim and a lime wedge drowning at the bottom of the glass. The flavor is very good (and spicy) and it is easy to drink. Some veggies would help it out. It is very well priced. Great atmosphere, food, and a lot of TV’s to watch the game.
$5.00 & only $2.75 on Sundays
That’s right, homemade
Best bang for your buck. Buy a jug of Zing Zang, some cheap vodka, celery, and a jar of olives. When you need it most, just mix it up half and half vodka to Zing Zang, (less booze if it’s just for leisure) leaving room for a splash of olive juice and the veggies. You don’t have to leave the house and can get more for your money, just the way you like it. It’s simple and there for you in your time of need.
Price: varies based on dressing.

Gourmet On The Fly
Wichita Falls Regional Airport
The stories sounded too far fetched even though the sources seemed reliable, much like a Big Foot sighting or Nessy. However, our interest was peaked and we wanted to find out for ourselves, so off we went. To the edge of town we drove with equal parts eagerness and doubt. I won’t lie, I felt like a child again, embarking on an adventure somewhere between imagination andreality. We arrived to a beautiful bar area with additional seating overlooking the tarmac. It was very nice and I felt at ease. As I began to inquire of the beverage…. err… meal…. uh, the myth, whatever your want to call it, a smile crossed the face of little miss friendly behind the counter. At first I didn’t know what to make of it as she slipped away through the door behind her. Then, as a choir of angels announced her return there is was! The stories were all true! This beast boasts a cheeseburger slider, a large chicken strip, 3 onion rings, slice of bacon, and 3 stacked skewers of vegetables including okra, pickles and tomatoes. A new feature that has come available is flavored vodkas such as Bakon and Effen cucumber for a small additional charge. Find a friend and get over to the airport to experience this for yourself. You can thank me later. Or heck, you can take me with you! They also have a delicious breakfast, brunch, and lunch menu but if you’re going for the Bloody Mary you’ll have to settle for gazing upon your neighbors plate because this will fill you up.
