In an area such as Lake Tahoe that attracts visitors (and locals) from around the world, one of the lucky results is a melting pot of ethnic restaurants. And some of the most-visited here are the Tahoe restaurants serving Mexican fare. Many of these spots have been popular eateries for decades, and they just keep on pulling in the crowds of hungry, happy diners. Some look like old haciendas and exude the charm and culture of our southern neighbors. Others are located in the middle of a casino or shopping center, so authentic ambiance might be lacking, but the flavors won’t be. Some offer Mexican fare alongside other culinary choices … on the off chance that someone in your party prefers burgers or pizza. If outdoor dining is offered, and it is in many places, head on out (with Fido in tow), order up a pitcher or two of margaritas to provide the prefect complement and relax. If you look at our interactive map, you’ll see a cluster of Mexican restaurants in South Lake Tahoe, but no matter where you are around the lake, you’ll easily find good options for tacos, burritos and more.
