While I was down last I noticed a severe lack of Mexican food, where can I find it?

I know about Juan's on Magazine but, I need REAL stuff.

I've heard the Eastern side of the city?

Old post, but to my knowledge there is absolutely no good Mexican food in NOLA. The locals will deny and offer up restaurants but they just don't know. And I don't even demand authentic Mexican, but they can't even get the beans and rice right.

In a vaguely Mexican vein, though, I must say that Taceaux Loceaux is excellent and worth tracking down.

You really have to go to Kenner or the Westbank to actually find mexican food.

Superior Grill on St. Charles. Go during happy hour, 3-6pm daily, for half-priced margaritas.

There are more of them, and more are run by actual Mexicans. Before the storm most "Mexican" restaurants were run by Central Americans and had both types of dishes.

Well, I moved from NOLA to TX last year. And now that I know what REAL mexican food taste like, I can say for sure that NOLA has no decent mexican food. Tex-Mex? there are a few places that I can tolerate. But THIS IS NEW ORLEANS... not exactly the scene for mexican food anyways.
