Craving Mexican food? You’re in luck! The North Shore area is full of restaurants offering mouth-watering tacos and burritos, not to mention all the margaritas you can drink. Here are three highly rated Mexican eateries just a short drive away from the Kelmscott Apartments.

Authentico Mexican Restaurant & Bar

Authentico goes beyond standard tacos and burritos to prepare “traditional Mexican cuisine with a modern twist.” One of the restaurant’s unique dishes is the Enchiladas de Authentico, a delightful treat that includes sautéed shrimp and blue crab meat. Another dish with a twist is the Taco de Pescado, stuffed with marinated mahi-mahi and red and green cabbage. Everything is prepared with fresh, local ingredients and naturally raised meat, making it easy to see why Authentico was a 2018 Diners’ Choice Award winner.

The Otherdoor

The Otherdoor calls itself “a taqueria with soul” and takes pride in serving locally sourced food that is both affordable and delicious. Craving a taco or burrito? Build your own with fillings like chicken, steak, duck, or Mexican pork sausage. Once you’ve chosen your filler, top it off with everything from lettuce and tomatoes to guacamole and warm queso. Don’t forget to try one of the restaurant’s 10 signature sauces. Are you brave enough to take on la malinche, the hottest sauce of them all? With funky decorations, good tunes, and outdoor seating, the experience at The Otherdoor is as enjoyable as the food.

Tacos El Norte 

Family-owned and operated, Tacos El Norte is an affordable, modern taqueria that serves traditional scratch-made Mexican food. Diners can chow down on crowd favorites like the quesadilla or enchilada dinner or opt for one of the restaurant’s six breakfast huevos. Want a margarita? Get it on the rocks or try one of the many frozen flavors which include raspberry, cherry, and passion fruit. Better yet, mix your own flavors for a drink that is uniquely you.
