Top Mexican Restaurants in Myrtle Beach
We realize that while you’re in Myrtle Beach, you’re usually in the mood for fresh seafood. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t mix things up once in awhile. That’s why we had our fans of MyrtleBeach.com list their favorite Mexican restaurants along the Grand Strand. The list included traditional Mexican establishments and restaurants with a party-like atmosphere.
Below are the Top 10 Mexican restaurants in Myrtle Beach as selected in the first-ever Myrtle Beach Awards (AKA the Beachies).
Margarita's Mexican Restaurant is located near the Restaurant Row section nestled in a smaller strip of shops. They serve authentic Mexican classics for lunch and dinner. The restaurant has a long list of salads including a shrimp taco salad and a guacamole and cream salad. Other popular choices include Fajitas, quesadillas, chimichangas and burritos.
El Cerro Grande Mexican Restaurant has a handful of restaurants scattered from Georgetown to North Myrtle Beach with their newest location set to open near Broadway at the Beach. They serve authentic Mexican classics like fajitas with shrimp, steak or chicken, green enchiladas, chile rellenos, quesadillas and more at reasonable prices. Head over for a quick lunch or dinner at any of their convenient locations and don’t forget to taste one of their giant house made margaritas!
Fiesta del Burro Loco is located just off 17 Bypass in the heart of Myrtle Beach. They’re consistently ranked as a favorite Mexican restaurant and a favorite spot for happy hour. Their menu includes items like stuffed jalapenos, fajitas, shrimp enchiladas, pork Picado and a variety of Mexican pizzas. Try their tender BBQ ribs or Fiesta steak for a change of pace. Burro Loco is also home to one of the biggest Cinco de Mayo parties in Myrtle Beach.
Savor the flavor of Mexico at Abuelo’s located at Coastal Grand Mall in Myrtle Beach. The restaurant begins cooking at 7 a.m. daily to come up with their made-from-scratch offerings. Start off your meal with a signature margarita and some fresh guacamole. House specialties on the menu include Tilapia Veracruz, Enchiladas de Cozumel and Alambre de Camaron which is wood-grilled, bacon wrapped shrimp stuffed with jalapeno and cheeses. The menu also offers a variety of traditional Mexican and Tex Mex items.
Order a pitcher of margaritas and get the party started at Fiesta Mexicana! Their menu features tons of great appetizers including bean dip, spinach dip, Queso Fundido and all the chips and salsa you can handle. The restaurant serves a variety of homemade soups, a la carte items, 17 lunch specials and more. The Little of Everything dinner special is the way to go with one burrito, one enchilada, one taco, one chalupa and one chile relleno served with rice and beans.
Venture down south to Pawleys Island and you'll find a locals' and visitors' favorite. Habaneros has been open for over 16 years and serves up mouth watering Mexican food and daily specials from $3.75. Try the tilapia fish tacos served with their secret sauce or the Burrito Supreme stuffed with chicken or beef enchiladas topped with lettuce, pico de gallo, sour cream and tomatoes. Take advantage of the beautiful weather and get a seat on the large patio.
Bandito’s Restaurant and Cantina is a fan-favorite oceanfront restaurant along the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. The extensive menu offers dozens of tequilas and mixed drinks, burgers, tortas, quesadillas, fajitas, tacos Latinos and a unique selection of side dishes. Signature dishes and Mexican classics are also offered and include tamales, enchiladas mole bandito, blackened fish and empanadas filled with chicken, seafood or steak. Stick around for live entertainment on the oceanfront patio.
Nacho Hippo Cantina Maximo quickly became a local and visitor favorite at The Market Common and has other locations in North Myrtle Beach and at the Myrtle Beach airport. Stop in for some of the biggest portions of nachos around. Try “The Donald” which features Main lobster meat, shrimp, spicy mayo and mango salsa or make your own nacho creation. Nacho Hippo also offers “Hip Tacos,” house specialties, quesadillas and $3 margaritas every day.
Tucked away off 707 in the Socastee area of Myrtle Beach, La Hacienda if a family owned restaurant with an authentic menu. Start off with a bowl of melty queso and wash it down with a large margarita. The combo possibilities are endless and you're sure to leave there stuffed. The Quesadilla La Hacienda is an enormous portion stuffed with chicken and cheese topped with guacamole salad, pico de gallo and lettuce.
Senor Frogs is home to food, fiesta and souvenirs at their wacky Broadway at the Beach location. The menu is an assortment of Mexican selections as well as burgers, wraps, sandwiches, pasta, BBQ, steaks and desserts.
