Well, for lovers of Mexican food in Massachusetts, that exact spot is Rincon Mexicano in Somerville, according to Taste of Home’s listing. The Best Mexican Restaurant in Every State.

The restaurant is the result of chef Lorenzo Reyes’ desire to “present the best of Mexican cuisine” since he arrived in the United States in 1989, according to Rincon Mexicano. website.

For 25 years, Chef Reyes has traveled across Mexico to learn about local cooking techniques, ingredients and recipes. Those trips finally paid off when he opened Rincon Mexicano in 2014.

“Really fantastic authentic Mexican food here”, a Yelp reviewer said. “This part of Somerville has amazing food, and Rincon Mexicano is one of the best I’ve tried in the area.”

Popular menu items include fish tacos, birria tacos, and baja shrimp tacos, but the buck doesn’t end with the shell.

“The birria tacos were pretty good but couldn’t top the Jaliscos,” said another reviewer. “Drinks were HUGE, totally worth it. Service was also friendly/attentive.”

The restaurant was even included in Boston Magazine’s 15 Best Mexican Restaurants In Boston.

To try the cuisine for yourself, you can stop by Rincon Mexicano at 99 Broadway in Somerville between 10:30 a.m. and 10 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday, or 4:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday.
