Best Mexican Restaurant is the most critical category in a border town where everyone has their favorites and own opinion as to what defines great Mexican food. Let’s just say that this four-time winner deserves this category once again due to a rich history and enchilada sauce. Who can argue with consistent local and national awards, as well as celebrity clientele? The best way to eat their signature enchiladas is to pay the extra fee and get half red, half green. This landmark is also known for their chile con queso and ground beef tacos made with potatoes. 3622 E. Missouri Ave., 915-566-8418; landjcafe.com.
