Best Mexican Food

1st Place: Cancun Mexican Grill
2nd Place: Azul Tequila
3rd Place: Tacos Juanita


Claiming to deliver the “real taste of Mexico” all the way to Wisconsin is a bold assertion, but Cancun Mexican Grill (four Chippewa Valley locations) lives up to that standard comfortably. The seven-time first-place winner is known for enchiladas, and it doesn’t hurt that the champions offer 99-cent margaritas on Mondays and Tuesdays. Azul Tequila (2503 London Road, Eau Claire) is more than just a name; it’s also what can be found in their masterfully crafted two-for-one margaritas throughout the week. The truest-to-form Mexican grub in the Valley probably comes from Tacos Juanita (2823 E. Hamilton Ave., Eau Claire), our third-place finisher. Finding way to their patio for an authentic meal is a must for anyone looking for the real deal. –Zack Katz
