Memphis has a growing love affair with Mexican food, as evidenced by the increase in the number of restaurants that put Mexican flavors high on their menus. When you're craving a great Mexican meal in Memphis, you don't have to go far to find one of the city's top choices.
Some of those that made our list of the 10 best Mexican eateries in Memphis are long-time favorites, including Molly's LaCasita, Las Tortugas Deli Mexicana and Taqueria La Guadalupana. Others are newer entries into the scene, including Babalu in Overton Square. Whether a newcomer or not, what all the restaurants on our list share is simple - an outstanding atmosphere, a dedication to the flavors of Mexico, and a menu worthy of repeated visits.
We particularly love the inexpensive taco shops that offer the double-whammy of a two-tortilla wrap, so if that's your kind of meal, try Las Delicias or Elena's Taco Shop. If you're thinking about a sweet end to the evening, then the churros at Chiwawa in Midtown or the creamy, fruit-infused paletas at La Michoacana are the way to go. Frida's in Midtown serves up huge servings that can feed a whole crew.
From simple taco shops to more upscale options, finding the best flavors of Mexico right in Memphis is a snap.
