Best Mexican Restaurants In NH

I’ve always said, there’s nothing better than a good margarita with chips & guac! Here in New Hampshire if that’s what you are craving, we have many options … but where is the best?? Here are my top 5.

#5 – Shorty’s Mexican Roadhouse – Located in Manchester and Nashua, Shorty’s is the perfect casual restaurant for after work food and drinks with your co-workers. The food here is a little more American than it is authentic Mexican, but I like that. Their Chimmi is huge and satisfying. I highly recommend the fried ice cream. More info HERE

#4 – El Rodeo – Located on Louden Road in Concord, the staff are excellent and always greet you with a smile. The best thing about this restaurant, the sauces. All of their sauces are their own local recipe. Sweet to mild to hot, there’s something for everyone. They also offer a 32 ounce container of their margarita mix to go! More info HERE

#3 – El Tapatio – When it comes to authenticity, this place hits the spot! Located in Merrimack, El Tapatio is family owned and operated The family has roots in Guadalajara and Jalisco. I highly recommend the choriso burrito and of course, the Tapatio sampler. More info HERE

#2 – El Jimador – It’s all about the Queso Fundido! Located in Belmont NH, this restaurant has perhaps the best Queso Fundido I have ever tasted. Served piping hot with nice chunks or Mexican sausage. I also highly recommend the chimichanga. Best part about El Jimador, the price. Incredibly reasonable and affordable. More HERE

#1 – La Caretta – It feels almost predictable that I would choose this restaurant as the best. I can’t help it, it really is THE best! With locations in Nashua, Manchester, Derry, Londonderry, and Portsmouth. The staff are incredible at all the locations and the food is delicious and authentic, but yet mild enough that just about anyone can enjoy it. They too make their own sauces from scratch using their own recipes. This restaurant has been a staple in the granite state for years. I recommend the blood orange margarita with all of the guacamole.
