I’m a lover of food. All different types of cuisines. Snacks, full meals, desserts. It’s all good in my book. One thing I love? Mexican cuisine. I love an overstuffed burrito or a plate of fajitas just as much as I love a pasta dish from a nice Italian restaurant. So, I wanted to take a look at 5 mouth-watering Mexican Restaurants in Morris County.

What makes Mexican Food so great? Well, that’s subjective. But I really feel like it has something to do with the number of choices a restaurant usually has. Just like when you go out for Italian, there are all sorts of meals and side dishes to enjoy. In fact, it’s somewhat overwhelming picking what you want to eat when you go for Mexican. But I would say overwhelming in a good way. LOL!

I grew up eating fast food style Mexican which I still enjoy. However, it’s really an Americanized version of a traditional Hispanic dish. There’s nothing wrong with that, but, an authentic Mexican restaurant takes things to a whole other level. It tastes made to order and has more traditional seasonings and spices.

I’ll admit when going to write this, I should point out that there aren’t many times I’ve been disappointed with a fun Mexican dish in the nearby area. But again, I like food. And I’m very easy to please. Maybe too easy LOL!

So, what’s your favorite dish? A taco, flauta, chimichanga, burrito? Again, there are so many options, and they are all pretty tasty. I feel like you can’t go wrong nobody what your go-to dish is. Oh, and whatever it is, don’t forget the side of beans and rice. I love that! It just adds so much flavor to an already awesome entrée.
