When it comes to rating and recommending Mexican food, diners can make an argument for a variety of regional Mexican food varieties. From locally influenced Tex-Mex to authentic dishes originating from the mountains of Oaxaca and the coastal areas around Veracruz.
Diners favorite Mexican dishes are as different and varied as the chefs that create them.
All in all, you can’t go wrong with any of these top Mexican food restaurants recommended by contributors to TripAdvisor.com.
For locals and travelers looking for Mexican food along the I-45 corridor check out Jimmy Changas located on the northbound feeder just north of the Walmart shopping center.
“Staying in League City before leaving on a cruise from Galveston, we chose Jimmy Changas based on reviews and how packed the parking lot was. Had to be good....and it did not disappoint! Delicious food...really good chips, salsa, and cream. The ahi tuna tacos served with rice, black beans, and a pineapple salsa were absolutely delicious. Good value for the amount of food. Service was very friendly and attentive. Can’t wait to eat here again!”771KathyP, Salina, Kansas (TripAdvisor)
Another long-time favorite located along the -45 corridor is LaBrisa on the Creek which celebrated in 16thyear in operation at the end of January. During the Spring and Fall, the outdoor patio at La Brisa becomes a live music venue showcasing local musicians.
“I've been to La Brisa two times, each meal there has been great. The servings are generous, and prices are reasonable. The chips and dip are fresh and tasty. Free parking and a nice atmosphere.”RRider2014, Tacoma, Washington (TripAdvisor)
The next two establishments take diners into the heart of League City. Located along FM 518, known locally as Main St., both Esteban’s Café y Cantina and La India Bonita sit near the intersection of FM 518 and Texas 3.
At Esteban’s one can either dine with family and friends or plan a party or gathering for a group of 30 to 80.
“The food was good and service very fast. Very nice evening for good food and nothing fancy. Prices are very reasonable.”Katjam2233, League City, TX (TripAdvisor)
Looking for authentic barbacoa, tacos, or tortas? Look no further, but don’t forget to bring your cash. La India Bonita doesn’t take credit or debit cards but does have an ATM on-site even though occasionally it is down for service or out of money.
“If you're looking for AUTHENTIC Mexican food (not Tex-Mex), then this is the place for you! It's a small, "hole-in-the-wall" looking restaurant, but don't let that deter you, the food is really good! I like to pick up tacos, which are more of what people now call the "street taco" variety.Armando T., Houston, TX (TripAdvisor)
If you are exploring the South Shore Harbour area, it’s worth the trip to wind your way through the Kroger shopping center located at South Shore Harbour Blvd. and East League City Parkway (Hwy. 96) to find Mr. Sombreros Mexican Grill & Taqueria.
“Everything is great there: the service; food; and fabulous margaritas! I personally love the stuffed fried avocado with meat and all of the side dishes that go with it. The breakfasts are excellent, too! This is a very small restaurant that is in a strip shopping center but don’t let that dissuade you from going there. The best things come in small package’s and this restaurant packs a punch!Shoretwo, League City, TX (TripAdvisor)
One newest restaurant, Abuelo’s is rising fast in the rankings after being open just a little over six months. This national chain, located on the southbound feeder along I-45, is part of the up-and-coming Pinnacle Park development.
