Best Mexican in Ohio? Sat, 03/14/09 3:37 PM (permalink)
I've been to a place in Mansfield, El Campesino, which is pretty decent but does anyone else know some good options?  I'm desperate here.

      El Rancho Grande has a handful of places in the Cin Day corridor.  While I cant vouch for the menu items the fajitas I do recomend highly.  The combo comes with a ton of tender rib eye strips, chicken breast and a handfull of nice sized shrimp.  We order for to on there buy one get on special.  For 10 bux theres enough left overs that I can get 3 decent meals out of it at home.  From my Mexican experience in Denver I can sy that they have a lot of traditional dinners as well as the taco/relleno/enchillad and burrito selections.  The fact that when we first went to the one in Middletown none of the waiters could speak a word of englis.  That would make one think that the kicthen hadnt been "gring-fied"

        La Michoacana Market
        748 Troy St.
        Dayton, OH

        It's a grocery store, but inside is restaurant area.  I love their tortas, but they have a pretty large menu with plenty of other stuff, too.  Most of their customers are Latino.  I highly recommend a tall, cold glass of horchata in the summer!

            I love Taqueria Mercado.  I can't get enough of those soft corn tortilla tacos.  I also can't resist going to the bakery next door for those delicious sweets after dinner. :)

              I was at Taqueria Mercado last night and it was excellent as usual. A trip to Jungle Jim's is not complete without a stop there. Taqueria Mixteca in Dayton might be better on third ave. I have found one in Columbus called The Seven Regions off West Broad that is great as well...Russ

                A bunch of guys at where I work really like Taco Loco. The one guy is originally from San Antonio and he has eaten at every Mexican joint in Dayton and has pronounced that Taco Loco has the closest approximation to San Antonio tacos of his past. He also says that Taqueria Mixteca off Third is a very close second.

                    With all the Latin restaurants on Route 4 in Fairfield now it is getting tougher and tougher to decide where to eat on pilgrimages to Jungle Jim's.

                      El Pueblo, north east of Cincy in Blue Ash on Hunt Road just off Reed Hartman Highway.
                      Lunch is a total addiction and habit for us on Saturdays.
                      Their Enchiladas Verdes is always fresh, amazingly delish tomatillos taste fresh from the garden, filled with stewed chicken, bursting with flavor. The pork carnitas lunch is my husband's favorite. And if you shop at the Blue Ash Kroger, check the back of your receipt for coupons!
                      Oh, and their guacamole is almost as good as mine according to my family.

                        For the pilgrimages to Jungle Jims, try Cancun at the plaza just north of Kemper on Hamilton Avenue. Their guac is pretty tasty, and try the beef (real not hamburger) chimi. Carne Asada tacos - yum!

                            I'll vote for Cuco's in Columbus.

                                Oh, man... you've hit on my hot button!
                                 
                                I'm going to go out on a limb and say that nowhere in Ohio has anything near the quality and diversity of true Mexican food that Columbus does. The taco truck scene here is incredible (40+ taco trucks and counting...), and the significant influx of latinos means that there's a phenomenal culture of latino cooking. 
                                 
                                I've been to every taco truck in Columbus (at least that we know of), and I'll throw down this challenge to all and sundry - go to the Los Guachos taco truck, order an 'al pastor gringa', and then tell me that there's better Mexican to be found in Ohio with a straight face! Bet ya can't do it!
                                 
                                More on Los Guachos: http://tacotruckscolumbus...009/05/13/los-guachos/
