Well, we have finally moved to beautiful Kentucky and the only thing we are missing about So. California is good, authentic Mexican food.....I know there were a few listed on a previous post and would greatly appreciate a reminder of those restaurants....thanks so much! (we are truly loving the Louisville area!).

El Mundo on Frankfort Ave. is the best. Also, La Rosita in New Albany is good, and for quick, cheap Mexican, El Tarasco does a real nice job. However, you probably won't find Mexican food to the extent you can in the border states. Go to LouisvilleHotBytes.com for other suggestions and foodie talk.

Please search my posts. Are you wanting REAL mexican? Then you need to go the the mexican neighborhoods. Please see my earlier post regarding this (you can search using the search tool and type in "stx12499 mexican".


The best authentic Mexican I have found that caters to gringos is here in New Albany:

La Rosita Mexican Grill - The Shortest Trip to Mexico You'll Ever Take! (http://www.larositagrill.com/ - broken link)

It is hard to find but once you do, it is the perfect example of don't judge a book by its cover. You'd never expect a place like it in that part of Indiana, given that unfortunately that part of New Albany looks like that old show they had on TV where the lady went around renovating historic small town downtowns.....

You really need advice from realy foodies, and Louisville is lucky to have the most active foodie board of any city its size I have seen:

Louisville Restaurants Forum • Index page

Go there and type Mexican in the search and you will get 25 pages of threads with discussion. Also, I highly recommend you join that forum (its free) and itroduce yourself. Not only is it a great way to meet friends, but those people know their stuff. In fact many of them are so well traveled (like myself) that they will probably gove you recs for restaurants you never even knew about (or maybe your favorites) in your hometown!

Hey - thanks everyone for the helpful recommendations - Stx I'll do a search and see if I can come up with your posts about Mexican restaurants. We are looking for authentic Mexican food with red and/or green chilie sauce - spicy and hot salsas and real Mexican cheeses - some place where they they make their own wonderful homemade beans, tamales, flavorful chicken enchiladas, carnitas and burritos, etc....we will try out the place in New Albany - thanks again.

Let me know what you think. Next, I will recommend you go to a Mexican neighborhood and go to an authentic taqueria.
