Get your fill of tacos and tequila at these hitlisted Mexican restaurants


Like a veteran luchadore, trad Tex-Mex continues to pull in the punters. Yet go down Mexico way and you'll find the city has gone full street food, from on-the-go burritos to fish'n'chip tacos, from vans to chains and the hippest hangouts in Margaritaville.
