Grapevine, Texas is called the “Christmas Capital of Texas.” We are still not sure why since living in and visiting Grapevine really has nothing to with Christmas. Be that as it may, we think a more appropriate name would be to call Grapevine the “Mexican Food Capital of Texas.” With only 50,000 residents and an abundance of Mexican Restaurants to choose from, Grapevine is absolutely engorged in Mexican food.
Welcome to Grapevine, the “Mexican Food Capital of Texas.” Now that has a nice ring to it!
We give you our list of the Top 10 Mexican Restaurants in Grapevine right here. Let’s start at the bottom and work our way up.
10. So-Cal Tacos
So Cal Tacos is a new entrant to the Mexican food scene in Grapevine. While the menu may be small, the tacos are delicious. We love the Gamechanger.
9. Burritos Locos
If you are looking for classic Mexican dishes in a very casual atmosphere, Burritos Locos is an excellent choice. For the food alone, they make our top 10.
8. Pappasito’s Cantina
Yes, there is a Pappasito’s in Grapevine. It is in the airport in Terminal A. This is within the city of Grapevine and it counts for our list. The food is excellent as you would expect even in an airport.
7. El Fenix
El Fenix has great Tex-Mex here along with very good margaritas. Enjoy, because you cannot go wrong here.
6. Cantina Laredo
Cantina Laredo has good fajita’s and great queso. They are in the top 10 Mexican restaurants for certain.
5. Uncle Julio’s
Uncle Julio’s margaritas are worthy of the top 5 by themselves. They used to be higher on the list, but seem to be getting more and more “corporate.” Some of the new menu items have been a bit of a letdown.
4. El Taco H
If you love hole in the wall places, El Taco H is for you. Excellent tacos and burritos and atmosphere. Enjoy!
3. Baja Mexican Grill
2. Mi Dia from Scratch
Mi Dia is quickly making a name for itself on Main Street in Grapevine. The food is on par with the best Mexican food you will find anywhere. The patio in the spring or fall is the best in Grapevine.
1. Esparza’s Restaurante Mexicano
Esparza’s is a Grapevine favorite. With great happy hour specials, a wonderful atmosphere near downtown Grapevine, and some of the best Mexican food around, Esparza’s cannot be topped in Grapevine.
Did we get any of them wrong or leave any out? Let us know below.
By the way, we hear there is a new restaurant coming in to the old home of Macaroni Grill off of Hwy 114. Maybe it will be a Mexican Restaurant since Grapevine needs some more of those. 😉
