Mexican Food Tour: Jacksonville, Florida


I talk to my parents almost every day. We talk about life, what’s new with my friends, people in their neighborhood, and food. More times than I could ever count, my parents have told me about Mr. Taco;ย this mouth- watering, day dream- inducing Mexican food restaurant that they frequent several times a week. I had heard so much about this place that when I went home to visit my family for the holidays, I already knew what to order without even looking at a menu. Carnitas tacos, thank you– and I’ll take two!

If you live in Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra or St. Augustine- make a beeline to Mr. Taco. And, if you are visiting for a Jags game or are a townie heading to the beach- make a stop for a few tacos. You won’t be let down!

    Jade you are killing me!

    The ONLY thing that sucks about South America is that it’s impossible to find decent Mexican food, lots of texmex junk but not the real thing. I guess nothing is perfect.

    I am always in the quest for the best tacos! Here in Miami we do not have many spots with good Mexican food – the only one I can suggest if you come down here is Taqueria by Mercadito in midtown Miami. Oh my…, I am getting hungry just by thinking about it! I like your video, found it by searching “best tacos in Florida!”
