Mexican Restaurants

America’s long love affair with Mexican food is only growing sweeter with each passing year. Authentic Mexican dishes available throughout the region deliver flavor combinations that can only come from tomato, avocado, corn, chili peppers, cheese, pork, chicken, beef, rice and beans, and spices. In a dizzying array of creations, Mexican food delivers those unique, ethnic flavors, straight from the sun-drenched earth we all love. Guacamole dates back to the Aztecs, but the other traditional flavors of Mexico are as old as time itself, and mostly native to the region. Wrap up your favorite meats, chicken, and vegetables in a flour or corn tortilla, smother it with cheese and tangy sauces, and you’ve got a meal fit for an Aztec king, or a hungry family. Everybody loves Mexican food, and why not? It’s made with simple, natural, fresh ingredients that represent the bounty of the Earth.  The Grand Strand has a few excellent Mexican restaurants ready to feed your family, and make you say “Ole!”

El Cerro Grande

With eight locations to serve you, El Cerro Grande is Mexican done right. A huge, creative menu stays inspired by new dishes and specials to whet your appetite. How about Shrimp & Cream, a dish made from perfectly cooked fresh shrimp, covered in a Chipotle cream sauce, with lettuce and pico de gallo. Or try the Cowboy Chimichanga, big enough to rope in anyone’s hunger. Disfrutar de la vida! Enjoy Life!

Sun City Cafe

The only one of its kind, Sun City is a Myrtle Beach original, and a local’s and insider’s best-kept secret. Located in Downtown Myrtle Beach, Sun City is famous for its chips and fresh salsa served mild and hot, their Old School” burritos, large enough to share (though you may not want to), and maybe the best margaritas on the beach. Real, fresh, and delicioso!

Mexico Lindo

This Mexican restaurant occupies a small, quaint building near downtown Myrtle Beach but manages to pack them in for lunch and dinner. Offering excellent prices and excellent food, Mexico Lindo is one of those places you do when the family has a big appetite but a tight budget. The lunch buffet is especially popular, and the bar area draws a bit of a crowd during the evenings.

This national chain takes Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine to a new level. With the English translation of Grandfather’s,” Abuelo’s feels like a home-cooking version of Mexican food rather than a rehash of the same traditional fare. A full bar and patio deck make this a popular hangout for folks shopping at the adjoining Coastal Grand Mall.
