Best Mexican Restaurant

Mexicali Rosa’s, 5680 Spring Garden, 422-7672

SuperCitizens opted for Tex Mex over authentic Mexican, putting Mexicali Rosa’s ahead of Mexico Lindo. Perhaps it was the famous Rosa’s margaritas that drew in the votes? “Nachos,” I’m told by a former server. “Nachos and salsa, that’s what people like at Mexi’s.” And that authentic cantina look; you can almost convince yourself the swarthy men talking in the corner are plotting how they’ll get poor farm families over the border come nightfall. Nah, it probably is the nachos after all, and the fun atmosphere.

Runner-up: Mexico Lindo, 3635 Dutch Village, 445-0996
