Excellent Mexican food?

So where can I eat excellent Mexican food? I have only eaten Mexican finger food & my knowledge of the best is lacking.

      "tacos" is a very productive search keyword

    2. Taqueria Jalisco
      291 Bennington St, Boston MA02128(Btwn Bremen & Chelsea St) (617) 567-6367 - Love the birria.

      1. I second the rec for Jalisco in East Boston but depending on where you live you might also consider Tres Amigos on Rte 28 (Main St.) in Stoneham. It's a small place tucked back in a strip mall and family run but I have always found the food to be quite good. I'm a big fan of their Carne Asada tacos and they recently added a grilled pork version that is equally good. They offer all of the most well known Mexican dishes and do them well. The place is BYOB and I don't think there is anything on the menu above $12.00 or so. They also do a very active take out business.

        1. I second Eastie, and Taqueria Amigos over in Waltham.. nothing much to look at, but tasty food.

          But are you looking for some ambiance - you could try Acitron in Arlington Center. Mexican cuisine is pretty diverse.. and then add in Tex-Mex too...

          And finally, does easting this food also mean drinking a margarita?
