Vote: Readers choose the best Mexican restaurant in Southwest IL



Our Mexican restaurant poll has been up since early Monday morning, and with just under a day and a half to vote in the first round, here’s an update for those of you following.

Leading the poll is Mariachi’s with 121 votes. With locations in Belleville, Maryville, and Millstadt, I’m surprised we don’t see higher numbers here.

Currently in second place is Margaritas Mexican Restaurant, which also has a location in Belleville (two, in fact) as well as New Baden. They have 108 votes, so far.

The rest of the current top eight are Casa Azteca (108), La Casa Mexicana (106), Mi Casa Mexican Restaurant (101), Casa Maria Mexican Grill (100), El Gordito (95) and Tres Caminos Mexican Restaurant (90) . ).

In the bottom half of the slice are Tequila Mexican Restaurant (84), Ramon’s El Dorado (76), Rio Grande MX Cocina (72), Tienda El Ranchito (56), Casa Romero Mexican Restaurant (56), Agavero Grill & Cantina (50), Mexico Tipico (38) and Camino Real (35).

The line between the top and bottom eights is thin. And some should see an increase in votes in their favor if they want to advance to the next round.

Tell your family and friends about the survey. Heck, tell complete strangers, because at least who doesn’t love a good taco/enchilada/salsa/margarita?

The first round ends at 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, March 16. Then we’ll see who makes the second round.
