My family loves Mexican food. As soon as my youngest daughter could talk, she started asking for beans and rice! Growing up here I’ve watched some great Mexican restaurants come and go- but a few that we have now are phenomenal! So, if you’re looking for great tacos, burritos, or even the best margaritas, keep reading!
Fiesta Grande( 421 N Baker St. Mount Dora) – It is hard to find someone who lives in or near Mount Dora that hasn’t been to or heard of Fiesta Grande. With indoor and outdoor seating right in the middle of downtown and a menu full of all kinds of goodies, Fiesta Grande is a family, and Lake County, favorite- with good reason! Try the Enchiladas Supreme- a personal favorite!
Sol de Mexico(125 N Bay St. Eustis) – One that I would consider a “hidden gem”, Sol de Mexico is tucked near an ally in Downtown Eustis. When you walk inside the decor is almost as great as their food. For something a little different I have to suggest the Cancun Plate- a yummy blend of shrimp with mushrooms and onions over rice and Queso. So delicious! The standout item for me at Sol though, is their margaritas! Try their blue margarita for a twist on the classic, and get any of their flavors frozen!
Plaza Guadalajara Mexican Restaurant( 18660 US- 441 Mount Dora) – Located right on 441, it is hard to come across the Plaza Guadalajara parking lot anything but full most days! This spot is a favorite of mine for fajitas. Don’t forget to go during happy hour for extra treats!
What do you consider Lake County’s best Mexican? Let us know- we’ll never turn down another reason for tacos!
