Tlaquepaque Mexican Restaurant

The best Mexican restaurant in town has an almost unpronounceable name.

That honor goes to Tlaquepaque, at 911 N. Murray Blvd. Named after a city in the Mexican state of Jalisco, Tlaquepaque is Aztec for “place above clay land.”

You don’t need to worry about clay at this restaurant, which exudes an authentic, family-owned feel. Your biggest concern is deciding what to order from a huge menu.

Tlaquepaque has all the traditional Mexican dishes, as well as churros and horchata, but my favorite are the tacos, the finest in the city.
