Description

Miami New Times' Description

From its red- and green-striped exterior to the colorful rooster sculpture that stands outside the door, Taquerias El Mexicano has the feel of a Mexican tienda. Piñatas hang from the ceiling, and rows of Mexican spices for sale grace the wall behind the counter. What's best is that this restaurant serves mostly solid Mexican dishes for less than $10. Service is a little slow at times, and if you visit during lunch, you'll likely spend a full hour here. All meals start with sometimes-greasy chips and salsa. The carne asada, cochinita pibil, or al pastor tacos ($1.75 each or $6.95 for three) are tasty choices. Also try the daily specials, which can be steak or chicken fajitas or enchiladas. Or if you just can't choose one menu item, order a combo such as the taco, tostada, and enchilada. They are also popular and a good deal at $7.95. On weekends, specials include borrego enchilado (braised lamb served with rice, beans, and pico de gallo) and birria (Mexican lamb soup).

    One of our favorite family Mexican places. If you haven't tried this little gem just west of Brickell, you are missing out. It may not be all "trendy", but it sure is good. Soul Of Miami approved!

    It's just ok. They don't make their own tortillas. It's the best of the worst when you are craving Mexican. The cafeteria in Mexico city airport is amazing compared to this. Its all relative.
