Last night my husband and I were in the mood for Mexican food and decided to hit Eat Street. Someone had recently recommended Morelos to us so we started to head in that direction until we realized we'd eaten there before (but just didn't remember the name of the place). We thought the food was "fine" but weren't dying to go back, so we decided to pick a different Mexican restaurant along Nicollet Ave.
But we had no idea where to go. And ended up going to Little Tijuana.
What do my fellow Minneapolitans think? Where should we have gone? We live close to that neighborhood and did not want to drive much farther, which is why we didn't go to Midtown Global Market. Someplace on Lake Street would have been fine, but again, we didn't know where to go.
I feel like Mexican is the one cuisine missing from husband's and my restaurant repertoire. We have our favorite Vietnamese, Chinese, Thai, etc places, but haven't found "our" Mexican place yet.
Suggestions? (Please try to limit your recommendations to places in Minneapolis west of MGM and south of downtown. We don't like to drive too far on weeknights.)
