Best Mexican Restaurant

El Guapito Mexican Restaurant

110 W. Mulberry St., (410) 244-7072, elguapitomexicanrestaurant.com

Posted 9/16/2009

We take our Mexican food seriously around here. Affordable, tasty and filling, El Guapito hits our food stuffs trifecta. With unmistakably fresh ingredients in belt-loosening portions, Guapito (formerly El Torito) serves up all three categories in spades. The heaping tacos are a steal at $2.75 each, with perfectly prepared carne asada, chorizo, and lengua (beef tongue) topping the list of our favorites. If tacos aren't your thing, try one of the absurdly large enchiladas. For just $10.95, you can make two meals of one order or eat the whole thing in one sitting and wait for the impending food coma to set in. Your choice.
