Favorite Mexican Restaurants in Central Florida!


Where will you be celebrating Cinco de Mayo? If you need some help deciding, we recently asked our Facebook fans, “What is your favorite Mexican restaurant in Central Florida?” Here’s what our fans said!

1. Rocco’s Tacos – Rocco’s Tacos offers a true taste of Mexico within a fun casual environment. When you first step through the door you become part of the atmosphere, joining a diverse crowd enjoying flavors picked directly from Mexico.
Experience guacamole prepared table side, sample from 225 varieties of tequila, order a margarita with a sour mix you’ll taste nowhere else – it’s made right on the premises. Rocco’s provides a diverse menu with distinct attention to detail, including corn tortillas made by hand and cooked fresh on the Comal in our kitchen, just as they are made in kitchens throughout our neighbors to the south.

HAPPY HOUR at ALL Rocco’s Tacos locations is every day from 4pm-7pm: $1 off ALL drinks!

gringos locos2. Gringos Locos – We pride ourselves on serving the finest, freshest products we can produce. We use fresh, never frozen 100% beef, chicken is cut in house and our pork is slow roasted for seven hours. Fresh tomatoes, onions, cilantro and jalapenos are cut in house on a daily basis. The tortillas we serve are shipped direct and we fry the chips and hard taco shells daily. Our beans come in a bag, not a can. The sofrito for our rice, our salsas, marinades and queso are all made from scratch…Well, you’ve got the idea.

agave azul4. AGAVE AZUL! Back in 2008 Agave Azul opened its doors with the promise to serve the good souls of Orlando and surrounding areas with consistently outstanding Mexican fare. In a world where promises are often made but seldom delivered, this was the exception. The food and service were excellent and more surprisingly; consistent. As the years passed the standards of food and service have improved largely through our genuine commitment to excellence in hospitality. Agave Azul continues to “Bring more to the table than good food” as we expand our vision. Not only to continue our endeavours to live up to that original promise but also to elevating our ideals in the procurement of our produce, creativity in its preparation and in service to our guests, our community and beyond.

11421346-cocina-214-horiz-logo-4c-dk-brown-copy8. Cocina 214 is a contemporary Mexican and Tex-Mex kitchen. The name is a combination of the Spanish word for kitchen, “cocina” and the Dallas area code, “214.” The idea for opening COCINA|214 developed when two of the owners from Texas missed the Tex-Mex and Mexican food they had grown up eating. They wanted the same authentic, fresh and quality food here in Winter Park.

COCINA 214’s menu combines bold flavors with the freshest local ingredients to create exceptional Tex-Mex – all served in a vibrant, elegant setting.
