Review: “My wife and I are in town and decided to try one of the local restaurants for dinner. We love traditional Mexican food and given the many 5 star reviews it was a no brainer. The food was amazingly good and all the staff were super helpful and very friendly All the reception staff were fluent in Spanish and English and did their best to make us feel at home You can’t beat the price either , we both filled our plates and had drinks, and our total was only $15. Phenomenal service by such an amazing team. Try it for yourself and you’ll see why there are so many out there. love it,” Caleb said.

The Mexican

Rating: 4/5 stars

Review: “This place is a hidden gem. It’s located at the back of a supermarket, so you’ll have to dig to find it. We arrived on a Tuesday evening and it was not busy at all. Our server didn’t understand much English but she was very nice and accommodating. We ordered tacos, ribs and fajitas. Portions are huge for the price. It was definitely one of the most authentic Mexican dishes I have ever eaten,” Anna wrote.

Guadalajara Mexican Restaurant

Rating: 4/5 stars

Review: “The food and service were amazing. I was drunk after a big Patron margarita. I had the Mexican plate, which was delicious, and my husband really enjoyed his steak burrito verde. Our server was on top of everything. The place was packed tonight and we were expecting substandard service, but instead we received great service, food and drink. We will definitely go back and recommend it to everyone,” Rose said.

Menu favourites: margaritas, chimichanga, chicken quesadilla and street tacos

Mexigrill Taqueria

Sapo Mexican cocina and bar

Rating: 3.5/5 stars

Menu favourites: vegan and vegetarian options, salsa and guacamole

Las Americas Super Mercado & Restaurant

Rating: 4.5/5 stars

Conclusion: “This place has everything you need for all your Latin cravings. One of the greatest things about this place is that you can buy all your produce so you can go home and cook a home cooked meal or you can sit down and eat one of the very authentic food choices. I had their soup (also known as Menudo), it was delicious. Their tacos are delicious, the nachos are delicious, their Carne Asada is delicious. I mean, should I continue? Carla said.

Menu favourites: soup, guacamole, tacos and chorizo ​​quesadilla.

Tacos El Paisa

Rating: 4/5 stars

Review: “Visitors to Fort Benning: Stop here for authentic street tacos.” We’ve walked past this taco stand several times and after a long day of shopping and eating at chain restaurants and BBQ’s, we were ready for a change. Street tacos at their best – we ordered four different meat tacos and they were as good as any we bring home to California. I would recommend this little stand to anyone who loves a good street taco. Everything is cooked to order, so it takes a few minutes, but every minute is worth it. Don’t forget the cooler with all the sides,” Kel said.

Menu favourites: street tacos, quesadillas and burritos.

El Carrizo Mexican Restaurant

Rating: 3.5/5 stars

Review: “Love this place. My favorite restaurant in all of Columbus. They have the strongest margaritas and the prices are affordable. The service is great. No complaints,” Jenny said.

Menu favourites: taco salad, guacamole, nachos and quesadillas.
