UPDATED for Cinco de Mayo 2014.
Cinco De Mayo is almost at hand, so let’s celebrate by checking out some of our old favorites or by finding new favorites. We’ve tried to put together the best list possible, but certainly let us know if you have a favorite that should be included on here. A few prerequisites for this list: great tacos, burritos, and guac. Bonus points for margaritas, tequila, and outdoor dining. ;) Tell us…is your favorite on here? If not, what’s your fave Mexican spot here in CT?
Taco Loco: You’d be loco not to hit this spot up if you’re in the area. An old favorite when we lived nearby. Good Mexican all around, plenty of room, and they usually have fun gifts on Cinco de Mayo.
Darien + Fairfield
Los Molcajetes: Killer tacos, especially the alambre: beef and bacon, married in beautiful harmony. Salsa and margaritas are just basic, though. Stop in for the tacos and the authentic food.
Tacos Mexico: Eat and drink cheap here. Food is average here, but you’ll leave satisfied and your wallet won’t be much lighter.
El Charrito: You can pick up food at their to-go spot at 7 Apache Place in Riverside, CT. Same food from the El Charrito taco truck.
Casa Villa: Amazing tacos, great dishes, fun atmosphere, outdoor dining. Make sure to ask for your margaritas with fresh squeezed lime.
El Charrito: People have said they will kill for the food off of this taco truck. Find them on Richmond Hill Ave.
Lola’s Mexican Kitchen: In the thriving “heart” of downtown Stamford, Lola’s is putting out some good food. Although we have heard complaints about service, we did have a good experience. The churros are excellent here.
Riviera Maya: Our first review ever. We have sentimental attachments to the good food here. There are LOTS of fun margarita options here and there is some outdoor seating.
Viva Zapata: Long live the shoe? More like supporting the revolutionary general, Zapata. Omnomivores have made their feelings clear, so we needed to add this bad boy. Plenty of outdoor seating, killer margaritas, and good Mexican food here. Viva la Revolución!
