Miamians know that all the best Mexican food is in Homestead, and among the top choices down south is a little place called Taqueria Morelia. This taqueria serves up some of the tastiest tacos and quite possibly the best burrito al pastor in all Miami-Dade. The service is excellent, the restaurant is neat and festive, and the menu options plentiful. Come for breakfast and order a plate of Huevos a la Mexicana (scrambled eggs with tomato, onion, and jalapeno) or jump into lunch with a torta (Mexican-style sandwich--think burrito but instead it comes on extra-fluffy bread). Vegetarians will want to order the chile relleno (a cheese-stuffed poblano pepper with rice and beans on the side) or the enchiladas (but don't expect stringy cheese, as they use cotija cheese here exclusively). Order a horchata or a michelada if there's a soccer (er-futbol) game on the TV and you're good to go.

- Mexican: "Morelia has a second location on Palm Drive hidden within a gas station, but we think their more spacious Campbell Drive location is better."
- Best for Mexican Because: Taqueria Morelia has an excellent salsa bar with fixings you don't often find elsewhere. Their satisfying dishes leave little to be desired.
