Eating Mexican on the Strip means unlimited choices


Mexican food is everywhere these days, and Vegas is no exception.  Whether you like enchiladas, tacos or churros, there’s a Mexican bar/restaurant nearby. As for drinks, many places serve the highest grades of tequila such as “reposado” and “añejo.”

Among noteworthy recent resaturant openings are Cabo Wabo and Hussong’s Cantina.

Cabo Wabo is in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood, where you can drink from a 100-ounce cup shaped like a guitar (the restaurant’s owner is rocker Sammy Hagar). There’s a patio and live music on occasion.

Hussong’s Cantina, located in Mandalay Place, hosts a mariachi group three nights a week and Baja-style food.
