Best Mexican food

Mexican food is my favorite, so where can we find the best Mexican in Key West?

I like the bartenders and servers at Salsa Loca. Steps, I'd like to do a review on Lupita's but might wait until we eat there again. We were sticking to our low carb diet pretty strictly last weekend, so no Mexican for us then. We'll hopefully get to eat there again in May.

I'm from the southwestern United States. A bit closer to where you are from. That being said, I found the food at Salsa Loca just awful. I think Mexican food is very regional and what you find there may not be anything like what you find in the southwest. I thought Chico's was pretty good but I haven't been there for about 10 years and I've never been to Lupita's. Frankly, you may want to skip Mexican food while in the Keys and let your palate enjoy the Cuban food that is offered.

I like Chico's, but it's on Stock Island. If you need to stay in Key West, I'd go with Amigo's.

I like the fish tacos at Garbo's Grill and at the Hogfish. Good tacos. Pretty sure it's not true authentic Mexican but ya never know. When we were in Mexico I learned that taco, patio and taco were all pronounced the same in Spanish and English, but I'm still not claiming to be an expert.

Another vote for Amigo's. Good food and good prices in a great spot for people-watching on the corner of Duval & Greene. They have barstool-style seating along Greene for some great people-watching while you eat/drink.

If you're lucky, you can even watch all the cruise ship passengers arrive as they walk right down Greene to get to Duval. Now THAT is the best people-watching ;)
