Get a taste of the best Mexican restaurants in Brisbane
If you're in Brisbane and are craving something hot, spicy and comforting, you'll be happy to know the city has no shortage of mouthwatering Mexican restaurants.
Whether you're eager to chow down on some tacos or would rather get straight to the margarita menu, you've got a whole host of delicious options.
Here are some of Brisbane's best Mexican eateries for you to sink your teeth into.
La Quinta Mexican Cafe y Bar
It's no wonder La Quinta has become one of Brisbane's most popular Mexican restaurants. With a great location, amazing service and meals crafted from the freshest and finest of ingredients, it can't go wrong.
Head along and enjoy the jovial atmosphere along with your meal. Start with a side of corn chips and guacamole complemented by a Mexican or Latin American beer, or perhaps opt for a Tequila Sunrise or jug of sangria.
La Quinta has all your favourite Mexican dishes, and if you want to be extra daring, you can try something unique such as the fiery roasted chillies or veracruz prawns. Delicious!
The Burrito Bar
With four delicious locations around Brisbane, the Burrito Bar has you covered.
Serving up street-style Mexican, it has fast become a local favourite. Start with a plate of Mexican fries dripping with mouthwatering chipotle sauce before chowing down on a taco, burrito, plate of ribs or chilli con carne.
For something a bit different, try the Mexican Burger, which comes jam packed with your choice of achiote chicken, pulled pork or slow-cooked beef, topped off with refried beans, guacamole and more.
Don't forget about dessert! Test out your palate with the Chocolate Nachos. A bowl of chocolate tortilla chips served with vanilla ice cream and lashings of chocolate sauce is sure to indulge even the most sugary sweet tooth out there.

El Torita is one of Brisbane's most longstanding Mexican restaurants. It's been filling hungry Brisbane bellies with all things authentically Mexican for over 14 years. It's also much-loved for its friendly and fun ambiance.
While all your favourite Mexican eats, such as tacos and quesadillas, are available, we recommend you try some of the more unique dishes. The Mole Pablano is a mild dish with grilled chicken bathed in dried chillies, seeds, nuts, spices, vegetables and decadent chocolate, served up with rice and tortillas, and is an incredible meal.
Follow it up with a mug of traditional Mexican horchata, a creamy, cinnamon-filled drink sure to quench your thirst.
Pepe's Newmarket Mexican Restaurant and Tequila Bar
One of the best things about Pepe's? It serves breakfast! Grab a breakfast burrito chock full of eggs, sauteed mushrooms, chorizo, feta, salmon - there is a whole host of options.
Or opt for an authentic huevos flamenco or el ranchero grande to really hit the spot and start the day off with a bang.
The crepas de cajeta, with traditional cajeta caramel sauce, mixed berries, agave soaked walnuts, banana and cinnamon helado is absolutely to die for. Top it all off with some Mexican eggnog and you're good to go.
For lunch or dinner, try something new with a fish taco or big bowl of hearty nachos. The seafood burrito is another great choice, not to mention the empanadas, stuffed pastries topped with chilli, rice and salad.
For dessert, steamed Mexican pudding makes for a delicious treat, as does the caramel mud pudding, lime margarita cheesecake, coconut flan, chocolate fudge nachos and more! Make sure you come hungry because you're going to want to sample a bit of everything.
There's also a great takeaway menu for when you want to take a bite to eat home.
With such a great variety of delicious options, you can always fulfil your Mexican cravings in Brisbane.
