Thank God real Mexican in Boca Raton!

Thank you...I'll check it out. I drove to the one next to the taqueria to get some different types of chile powders to make some Texas red. They didn't have them and Winn Dixie and Publix here have only one blend, as well as Albertsons in Ft. Lauderdale. I'll check this place out, guess I need to go mail order if they don't have it or I'll have to grind my own (not.....too lazy). I like to mix different varieties in my chili.

Pretty good, came to the grocery next door once, we have no Mexican grocery closer to Boca. Tacos Dorados like what they called taquitos when I've been in Mexico. Guac pretty but unfortunately very little avocado mostly onions and tomatoes. I'll try the "regular" soft tacos next visit. Nice people and the food was good, more than I could eat.

OK well I'm here now awaiting an order of Tacos Dorados and wow the guac they just served me looks good.....

Again, this is a very simple mom and pop hole in the wall much like you would find in a medium size Mexican town (although this one might be a tad cleaner than those you would find in MX)...menu features nothing fancy, though I seem to recall they did offer lengua (I might be wrong), but I know she seemed very proud of their mole and I think they had Chiles Relleno. Again, this is a really basic little place. I'm going to try Dona Raquel today....its just more of a hike from Boca.

They sell slices at the Cafe location only, and only at lunch, not dinner.....

Wow, you made there pretty quick! Of course we know that "best" is a relative term, especially for more exotic food like Chinese or Indian or Mexican....and good pizza is very hard to find. If you are from NY you are not gonna be happy. BTW the double tortilla thing is a regional mexican thing. This place is a very simple family place, no flashy furnishings but clean. They have a home made hot sauce in addition to the salsa they put on the table. Not a selection of hot sauces as again it's a very basic mom and pop kind of place. I told them I would put them on the internet but they don't have a connection, no email, no website. Again, mom and pop. If you want "good" pizza try Renzo's Cafe, not the restaurant, the little place on Federal Hwy just south of 70th St (where the ABC Liquor Store is located). They have a white pizza with bacon and mushrooms that's pretty darn good! I'll be hitting Dona Raquel this next week......

Thank God real Mexican in Boca Raton!

Cant say never been there but I will thanks to your comment! I'm Mexican food obsessed, it must be real and must be fresh

Thank God real Mexican in Boca Raton!

wow, didn't think I'd ever find it. Tiny place on Palmetto Park in a strip center just west of Dixie had real deal tacos just like your Mexican madre used to make.... Have to try the Chilis Rellenos next time which is gonna be soon. She says her mom makes the mole can't wait to try that! Mi Casita is the place for real thing Mexican food in S Fl !

Where is REAL NY pizza in Florida ?

Hey if you are in the Boca Raton area you can't miss La Pizza, a little hole in the wall in a strip center on NE 2nd Street just east of Federal Highway. I had to call this guy Pino after I got my third pizza from there in as many weeks to tell him what a genius he is! I've been in FLA since '84 and it is a real struggle to find good pizza here! Crust is super thin in the middle but not wet, edge is light and crispy. Try the meat lover if you are a carnivore.....meatball slices carried here on the wings of angels! Got to find out where he gets the ham....I'm not normally a fan but he uses a fine mince of bacon-y goodness that wows you with a real flavor punch. If you have to pick it up you better open the windows cuz the smell of the sauce will make you pull over to eat it on the side of the road! Had a olive and artichoke heart that was really good too....the crust is good as any you will find in NYC and the sauce is fine. Bet the rest of the menu is good too but I'll probably never know, can't imagine passing up the pizza! Buon Appetito!
