Mexican Food in Brisbane

They say that the further you get from Mexico, the less authentic the Mexican food becomes. Well, Brisbane is a fair old haul from Mexico, so I am not entirely sure how authentic the brand of Mexican food we get here is, but I do know that, authentic or not, it's delicious. In the last couple of years there have been a number of new Mexican restaurants popping up all over town, to compete with old favourites like Pepes and Montezumas.

If you walked past Agave Mexican Bar and Grill on a Saturday night you could be forgiven for thinking it was more nightclub than restaurant. This place has a great atmosphere, the food is cheap and generous, and the jugs of frozen margaritas are dangerously tasty.

For something a little more low-key, Tuckeria prides itself on being fresh and authentic, as evidenced by their catchphrase: "There's no Tex in our Mex". While Tuckeria may lack the atmosphere (not to mention the margaritas) of Agave, the food is extremely fresh and the menu is designed to give the diner as much choice as possible.

Personally, I have a soft spot for Dos Amigos in Taringa. This place has been there for over 20 years, and they consistently serve great food (and, at the risk of sounding obsessed, their margaritas are second to none).

A few other options that I have heard (or experienced) good things about are:
La Quinta in Bulimba
Villa Maria in Camp Hill
El Torito in West End
Guzman y Gomez in Emporium, Fortitude Valley

What could possibly be better than combining the deliciousness of sour cream, guacamole, salsa and corn chips with drinks like sangria and margaritas? Ole!

Why? What's not to love about tacos and margaritas?
Where: All over Brisbane
Mad mex in the valley, and Rosa Mexicano in Rosalie and Kenmore are my favorites. No tex mex there either!
