The Mexican Revolution led to America's fascination with Mexican food. During that time, many Mexican refugees fled their civil war-torn country and sought refuge in the United States, the closest country to Mexico. In America, many immigrants continued to cook and serve their local dishes to their families to preserve their culture and nostalgic reasons.

Mexico's new restaurants or cantinas emerged in Texas and Los Angeles in the 1920s. It wasn't long before hot dishes, tacos, enchiladas, burritos, and fajitas were popular throughout the country, tempting many Americans to experience authentic Mexican food.

1. Bandito's Burrito Lounge, Richmond, Virginia

Put one neon pink tortilla filled with white refried beans, shredded pork, tomatoes, onions, guacamole, black beans, and chicken into a conical pan, then top with red ranchera sauce and cheese, and you have the Bandito Burrito.

In this beer-soaked establishment, you can expect offbeat Mexican-Cali cuisine. Every dish here has a below-border theme, except for the ubiquitous grilled chicken sandwich and burger, so don't come hungry for catfish or chowders from the deep south. However, there are a few vegetarian options. Consider ordering faco (a soy-free, all-natural meat alternative), such as faco nachos or a faco taco. The brunch menu includes the usual suspects like pancakes and french toast (it is made with Texas toast) and chili rellenos with eggs.

There is fried ice cream or flan as desserts to choose from. Having an array of TVs, this place is pretty popular, attracting both hard hats and college kids so that anything can happen here.

The basic components can be combined into your favorites; our favorites are the chipotle beef, rice, and beans in a flour tortilla, and a scoop of guacamole to top it off. Additionally, we like the carnitas burrito with two salsas. A high-profile burrito eatery stresses pure ingredients, great flavors.
