Check Out These Mexican Restaurants in Jacksonville

There is no denying the plethora of dining options available around our apartments in Jacksonville, and when it comes to Mexican cuisine, there are plenty of options to choose from. Here are a few of our favorites.

Mi Veracruz

It may be hard to find Mi Veracruz online or on social media. That’s because this local gem became popular from word of mouth alone. Authenticity is key here and can be enjoyed via tasty chicken tacos, chile relleno, and carnitas. Don’t forget to stop in on a Tuesday and enjoy their $1 tacos.

Hola Mexican Restaurant

Family-owned and operated, Hola Mexican Restaurant shares its cherished recipes with its customers. Locals and those who work nearby have Hola as a regular spot in their lunch rotation. That's because the service is friendly and quick, and the meals are fresh and affordable. In addition, when you have time in the evening, dinner equally hits the spot.

For lunch, you can order from a huge selection of 30 lunch specials. Come back regularly to try each one. Alternately, find a new favorite to order again and again. The Favorite Combo Lunch is an excellent choice. It includes a beef hard taco, beef burrito, beef enchilada, and a chalupa.

Casa Maria

When you're on the hunt for a top, all-around Mexican restaurant, head to Casa Maria. You'll be greeted by and attended to by friendly staff members from the minute you step in. The restaurant has a great feel to it with a fun outdoor seating area and bar as well. You can expect all the usual suspects from icy beers to chilly margaritas. The food portions are generous and filling.

Don't forget about the tacos. They are the star of the show. There's everything from pollo asado (grilled chicken) tacos to flavorful carnitas (pulled pork) tacos.

In addition to tasty Mexican restaurants, Jacksonville also is home to perfect places to go for a run. When you want to make Wimberly at Deerwood your home base, contact us. See our apartments in Jacksonville firsthand on an informative tour.
