It's the kind of question that, in Austin, can make or break friendships: Where's the best margarita in town? In honor of Eater Cocktail Week 2012, we've been asking it all week long.

Traditionalist versus trendy. Rocks versus frozen. Salt? No salt? Fruit infusion? Dainty sip or strong pour? There are so many ways—none of them wrong, really—to make this staple drink. So Eater Austin wanted to know: when readers crave their favorite margarita, where do they go?

We asked for your suggestions, threw in a few of our own favorites, and hosted three semi-final rounds to find the six top sips. Now, it's time to vote for Austin's ultimate margarita.

Round three winners La Condesa and Fonda San Miguel round out the top six. The finalists' poll closes at noon on Friday.
