One of the Best Mexican Restaurants in the Country is in Portland, Maine
There's a handful of different cuisines that Americans simply can't get enough of. Italian food still rules the roost as the most popular in the country. Chinese food is in second place followed closely by Mexican food. And according to Love Food, Portland, Maine, is home to one of the best Mexican restaurants in the entire country.
Love Food named Taco Escobarr as the best Mexican restaurant in Maine, and one of the best in the entire nation. The popular dive along Congress Street has long been a hit with locals. During tourist season, lines can be seen pouring out the door. So what is it that makes Taco Escobarr so good?
Love Food proclaims it's a little mixture of everything. The atmosphere at Taco Escobarr remains the best of any Mexican joint in the state. The ceiling of the restaurant is adorned with chili pepper lights, leading to extreme Instagram popularity. The curved bar makes for a nice showpiece. Heck, even the bathrooms are decorated.
Beyond the decor, people keep coming back for the addictive tacos. Taco Escobarr has protein options that are difficult to find elsewhere in Maine. Not only that, their different taco shell options range from delicious to out-of-this-world good.
There's also the tequila. Creative house-infused tequila options have made Taco Escobarr a destination for happy hour or late night drinks, and some of those options pair so well with the food on the menu, you can't imagine having them apart.
Also, don't sleep on the Taco Escobarr breakfast menu that's served on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday each week. Breakfast tacos are worth the early wake-up call.
