Not saying it's the best, but four pages so far and no mention of Taqueria El Limon? Doesn't anyone else here enjoy their beef tongue tacos?

Had a bad experience there involving a bug in a sandwich.

Can't go back now.

re: Best Mexican restaurants in Baton Rouge?


only ninfas to eat at is the original on Navigation in Houston

owner died 20 years ago and family sold it out and it was expanded with different recipes and turned into a chain.

pisses me off because it tastes nothing like the original and might as well be called something else.

the original is still one of my top 5 mexican places.

I have never understood the hate for Superior in Baton Rouge. I have never had a bad meal there and I get take from there all the time.

Mestizo has bad service but good food. Plus i get the satisfaction of supporting a local guy.

La Carretta is one of those places that just seems lazy to me. It uses better ingredients but the complexity of each dish is about as simple as Ponchos. Also if you enjoy the subtle play between hot food and the cold wet lettuce covering it then its your place.

Coyote Blues is pretty consistent but its more Tex Mex than Mexican. And I agree there aren't many Mexican places here but Blues is on the other end of the spectrum.

Ninfa's used to be my go to but it has fallen off over the years. And yes, you snobs are correct, the one in Houston is better. I am sure you also only eat the original of all restaurants. Your life must be rich and fulfilling. Might I suggest that you eat d!cks on your next outing.

La Carreta's on Bluebonnet is on my do not visit again list.... Last two times I've gone service has been horrible, food came out warm/cool, and the margarita wasn't good (seriously how do you mess this up)

Sad I've always enjoyed Hammond location when I lived in Hammond

re: Best Mexican restaurants in Baton Rouge?


Yea just service/meal coming cool/cold/warm was an issue. I mean the strawberry margarita my SO had was one that wasn't mixed properly, basically they just poured strawberry stuff on top and brought it. Mine just had an odd flavor to it, thing that ticked me of was, our waiter never came back to ask us if we wanted seconds after he brought our meal either. We sat they brought us chips, he came took drink/food order, brought us drinks, brought food, then didn't come back. I had to flag him down to get check and at 8pm on Monday night they were not busy.

Solid and I agree

That was directed at the snobs on here that constantly bash any other location of any restaurant other than the original. Guaranteed if you name a place with more than one location, someone will talk shite about the new one.


But seriously I stick by my La Carretta comments.
