Kansas City Mexican Picks

Kansas City might be known for their BBQ, but there are some incredible Mexican joints to discover, too. Try out Teocali Mexican Restaurant, a cozy little joint known for their giant seafood and tequila selection (a match made in paradise). The parrillada serves up to four people and includes sautéed onions, jalapenos, steak, chicken, shrimp and chorizo to make everyone happy. Pair it with a tequila flight, and you’ll really make the most of happy hour.

At Rudy’s Tenampa Taqueria, you’ll discover the best authentic Mexican fare in a long-time family owned establishment. It’s where locals flock to get their hands on the taco sliders. Five beef street style tacos with white cheese, covered in chile verde with house cheese dipping sauce and pica de gallo is a meal in itself, even though it’s on the starters page of the menu.

What’s Up Mex?

Cancun Fiesta Fresh is known for their street tacos, too, and the no-frills counter dining option ensures big portions at unbelievable prices. Check out their taquitos with shredded beef, beef cheek tacos, or the make your own burrito option where you can get as loco as you like.

You’ll also want to save room for Ponak’s Bar and Grill where the drinks menu is endless and you’ll get spoiled with their happy hour menu from 3-6 daily. This award winning restaurant, voted the best in Kansas City, is best enjoyed with their a la carte menu where burritos, enchiladas, flautas and more are all yours for the taking.
