We all need good Mexican food in our lives. From spicy jalapeño poppers and savory tacos to crispy nachos and tequila-filled margaritas, these top Mexican restaurants in Durban serve up the best of the best.

La Rosa Mexican Grill (Suncoast Casino)

Featuring a skull-themed bar, sombreros and bull horns, it’s the perfect venue for a celebration and the perfect place to unwind after a long day. Start by considering the wide selection of imported tequilas (there are over 30 to choose from) or try a few at a time with a flight of tequila. Once you’ve had your fill, indulge in the soft-shell corn or flour tacos, all of which are served with salsa and lime for an extra kick of sweet and sour spiciness. (Tex-Mex hard shell tacos are available upon request.) The build-a-burrito and build-a-burrito-bowl options are also popular. Leave room for a churro milkshake after your meal.

Open: Monday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Lawman’s Cantina (Westville)

Lawman’s Cantina is known for its fresh Mexican fast food. Their classic crispy tacos are highly recommended for sharing, or opt for the large portion of layered nachos. Protein options include BBQ Beef Hash, Cancun Chicken Hash, Slow-Cooked Pulled Pork, BBQ Soy Hash (vegan), and Refried Beans (vegan). This is the perfect place for takeout before a big night out. The Lawman’s Cantina trailer is also available to rent for events.

Mochachos (La Lucia, Salt Rock, Pinetown and Overport)

Mochachos, a popular household brand, is known for its flame-grilled Mexican chicken, oversized chicken burgers, and savory Mexican dishes. You can’t go wrong with a chimichanga (a fried burrito) or one of their famous shawarmas. If you want to discover the variety of the menu, opt for one of the platters to share. For dessert, the churros are accompanied by a caramel or chocolate sauce. The best part about Mochachos is that the food is affordable, so you can have a real Mexican feast without breaking the bank. Taste the fiesta and enjoy!

The slow roasted lamb nachos are an absolute winner. Be sure to save room for the crispy churros served with Hubertos ice cream and drizzled with nuts and decadent Lindt chocolate sauce. Quench your thirst with Mexican tequila cocktails.
