Patch Picks is here with some spicy local Mexican restaurants to warm up your chilly fall days.
The eagerly anticipated Port Chester favorite is ! With a long list of tacos, we’re excited to work our way through it — or surrender control to the experts and go for a tray of chef-selected tacos, tamales, guacamole, and sides.
We love their trio of guacamole, especially the perfectly sweet and spicy mango and habanero. Lola’s also boasts a great location on Bedford Street and an excellent (white or red) sangria.
While we can't quite call it a restaurant, the yellow food truck on Richmond Hill Avenue consistently turns out some of the best Mexican food in the city (you can also check out their ). Their pork and pineapple tacos are a personal favorite, and the constantly changing menu of tortas come highly recommended.
With two locations, 866 East Main Street (better for dining in) and 182 West Main Street (perfect for take out), it’s tough to find someone in Stamford who doesn’t rave about Casa Villa’s authentic and delicious dishes. Try their shrimp enchiladas with rice and beans.
Huge portions, great prices, and enough have-to-try-that options to keep you coming back. Their Mexican pizza — topped with chorizo, jalapenos, cilantro and onions — will have you hooked.
