Great Mexican in Columbia, SC?

Hey Chowhounders,

I'm new to the Cola area and I'm trying to find a good go-to Mexican restaurant. My wife and I love to eat Mexican and we've always had an easy Mexican option everywhere we have lived. We live in Cayce so anything in Cayce/West Columbia/Springdale is fine. Also the Vista and surrounding areas. If there's anything worth traveling a little further out for I'd be interested in that as well.

While we enjoy your standard Mexican fare (Combo #8 please) I've noticed a number of taco trucks and more authentic restaurants around. If anyone has any recommendations for these I'd love to hear them as well. Thanks in advance for the help.

  1. Mucho Margarita is in Five Points, which is not much of a drive at all from Cayce. It is a bit of a dive bar kind of place, but they have by far the best and most traditional Mexican food in the area. Do yourself a favor and order the sopes, and tell me what you think!
