Mexican in Columbus/Dublin?

So, some guy named uhockey, who is from Dublin OH, posted on the Boston board about all the high-end places he goes to. Gee, how nice. But, he also claimed, without any substantiation, that there is good Mexican food in Ohio. All he says is this:

I did not find any posts on this board from him about good Mexican food. So, I ask: anyone know of any good, authentic Mexican spots? I have not seen any in my many trips out there. I'd love to try some next time I'm there.

  1. Try his blog. He may have something posted on there. He does seem to eat at a lot of different places.

    1. There are some great taco trucks in Columbus, especially on the west side of town. Those are about the most authentic thing I've found. They're definitely not high-end, but there are some good ones!

      1. Go to La Casita on Bethel Road. Order the torta ahogada.

          I had the torta ahogada again recently. Wasn't nearly as spicy as it used to be. Very disappointing.

        2. Our two favorite places :
          Cuco's Taqueria-2162 Henderson Rd
          El Arepazo (Latin Grill) 47 North Pearl St.

            Maybe I ordered wrong, but I was underwhelmed by the food at El Arepazo. I had the Bandeja Paisa and the fiancee had a spicy ceviche (that was definitely not spicy) and we both felt that the food lacked seasoning. Even my arepa was a bit flavorless. Do you have specific dishes that you recommend instead? Should we not have ordered Colombian?

            I second Lauren in OH, there are some great taco trucks. I'm partial to Taco Nazo, especially since you can order ahead and pick up.

          2. The best Mexican in Columbus is generally tucked inside the Mexican grocery stores. Check out for recommendations other than trucks. It's run by the same people as the TacoTrucks website. There is alot of great, authentic Mexican food in Columbus, but you have to dig to find it.
