All Mexican & Central American

    Taqueria 27

    Taqueria 27 Salt Lake needs more Mexican food, and Todd Gardiner is here to provide it. Artisan tacos (try the duck confit), inventive guacamole and lots of tequila in a spare urban setting. Salt Lake Magazine’s Dining Guide is a select list of the best restaurants in Utah, curated and Read more [...]

  • The Bit and Spur

    The Bit and Spur The menu stars Southwestern cuisine—ribs, beef and chicken—as well as chili verde. A longtime Zion favorite, there’s almost always a wait here, but it’s almost always a pleasant one with a view and a brew in hand. 1212 Zion Park Blvd., Springdale, 435-772-3498. Salt Lake Magazine’s Dining Read more [...]

  • Whiptail Grill

    Whiptail Grill Tucked into an erstwhile gas station, the kitchen is little, but the flavors are big—a goat cheese-stuffed chile relleno crusted in Panko and the chocolate-chile creme brulee. 445 Zion Park Blvd., Springdale, 435-772-0283. Salt Lake Magazine’s Dining Guide is a select list of the best restaurants in Utah, curated and Read more [...]

  • El Chubasco

    El Chubasco Regulars storm this restaurant for south-of-the-border eats.

  • Tarahumara

    Tarahumara Some of the best Mexican food in the state can be found in this family–owned cafe in Midway. Don’t be fooled by the bland exterior; inside you’ll find a full-fledged cantina and an adjoining family restaurant with a soulful salsa bar. 380 E. Main St., Midway, 435-654-34654. Salt Lake Magazine’s Read more [...]

  • Chimayo

    Chimayo Bill White’s prettiest place, this restaurant is reminiscent of Santa Fe, but the food is pure Park City. Margaritas are good, and the avocado-shrimp appetizer combines guacamole and ceviche flavors in a genius dish. 368 Main St., Park City, 435-649-6222. Salt Lake Magazine’s Dining Guide is a select list of the Read more [...]

  • Billy Blanco’s

    Billy Blanco’s  Motor City Mexican. The subtitle is “burger and taco garage,” but garage is the notable word. This is a theme restaurant with lots of cars and motorcycles on display, oil cans to hold the flatware, and a 50-seat bar made out of toolboxes. If you’ve ever dreamed of Read more [...]

  • Baja Cantina

    Baja Cantina The T.J. Taxi is a flour tortilla stuffed with chicken, sour cream, tomatoes, onions, cheddar-jack cheese and guacamole. Park City Resort Center, 1284 Lowell Ave., Park City, 435-649-2252.

  • Mountain West Burrito

    Mountain West Burrito A humble burrito place with high-flown belief in sustainably raised meats, locally sourced vegetables and community support. Result: everything you’d ever want in a burrito joint, except a beer. 1796 N. 950 West, Provo, 801-805-1870.

  • Rico Cocina Y Cantina

    Rico Cocina y Cantina Some of the best Mexican food in town, ranging from everyone’s favorites to more sophisticated Mexico City dishes. Flautas and enchiladas suisse are standouts, but the hidden treasure is the tequila bar in back. 545 W. 700 South, SLC, 801-983-6692. Salt Lake Magazine’s Dining Guide is a Read more [...]

  • Blue Iguana

    Blue Iguana This colorful downtown restaurant has a charming Downstairs location and patio, and has been a Salt Lake staple for decades. Enchiladas, tacos, combination plates and “jengo” nachos—piled high on a platter—are all good, as are the margaritas. A nifty addition: phone chargers on every table, so if you Read more [...]

  • Alamexo

    Alamexo A fresh take on Mexican food from award-winning chef Matthew Lake whose New York Rosa Mexicano was “the gold standard.” More upscale than a taco joint, but nowhere near white tablecloth, this bright, inviting cafe offers table-side guacamole. The rest of the menu, from margaritas to mole, is just Read more [...]

  • Alamexo Cantina

    Alamexo Cantina Another version of Chef Matthew Lake’s terrific Mexican cuisine, the Cantina is livelier than the downtown original but the family-style food is just as good.

  • Chile Tepin

    Chile Tepin Instantly popular for its generous servings of not-too-Americanized Mexican food, this place usually has a line on Friday nights. Heavy on the protein—the molcajete holds beef, pork and  chicken—but cheese enchiladas and margaritas and other staples are good, too. Salt Lake Magazine’s Dining Guide is a select list of Read more [...]
