These Are Louisville's Top Mexican Restaurants Ranked

1. Taco Choza

Address: 3922 Westport Rd Louisville, KY 40207

Phone: (502) 874-4029

Taco Choza offers a wide variety of delicious tacos, burritos, tacos, and house specialites. Visit once and you'll see why they are ranked at the top. Try the Birria Taco (flour tortilla, slow cooked steak, mozzarella cheese, onion, cilantro, stew to dip), the El Compradre Burrito (14" flour tortilla, grilled steak or chicken or shrimp, rice, beans, lettuce, pico de gallo, guacamole, sour cream, jalapeño, covered with cheese sauce), and/or the Loaded Mexican Street Fries (fries, bacon, queso, pico, Monterrey cheese, chipotle aioli, add meat for $1).

2. La Cocina De Mama

Address: 2809 N Hurstbourne Pkwy Louisville, KY 40223

Phone: (502) 822-3506

La Cocina De Mama has two locations: one in Louisville and one in nearby Shelbyville, Kentucky. It's a favorite in both communities! I personally love the tostones (smashed, fried plaintains topped with chicken, chihuahua cheese, pico de gallo), Mama's fajitas (a fajita combo featuring steak, chicken, shrimp, and chorizo), and the seafood enchiladas (enchiladas stuffed with shrimp, scallops, and imitation crab).

3. Las Cazuelas Mexican Cuisine

Address: 4214 Bishop Ln Louisville, KY 40218

Phone: (502) 614-8634

Las Cazuelas is your standard Mexican restaurant, though they feature extraordinary dishes, flavors, and value. Try the Camarones a la Diabla (grilled shrimp, diabla sauce, rice, guacamole salad), the Enchiladas Veracruz (filled with crabmeat, topped with white queso, served with rice, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream), and/or the Pollo Fundido (shredded chicken, cheese, sour cream, jalapeños, rice, beans).

Address: 2932 S 4th St Louisville, KY 40208

Phone: (502) 638-0300

A neighborhood staple near the University of Louisville, El Molcajete has a strong, devout local following. You'll love their Torta (Mexican-style panini sandwich, your choice of meat, cheese, beans, lettuce, tomato, avocado, jalapeno), Camarones al mojo de ajo (grilled shrimp sauteed in butter, garlic, lime juice), and the Molcajeteada (skirt steak, chicken breast, chorizo, cactus, cheese, grilled onions, jalapenos).

5. La Rosita

Address: 5059 Preston Hwy Louisville, KY 40213

Phone: (502) 618-2883

La Rosita is an authentic Mexican restaurant that serves both tacos and tortas. The best part? It's located inside of a Mexican grocery store! Try a variety of their many tacos (al pastor, barbacoa, lengua, chorizo -- just to name a few) and one (or two, maybe three!) of their tortas!
