T-Mex Cantina - Closed

204 SW Second St. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301 | Fort Lauderdale | 954-463-2003

Location Description:

This tight little spot used to be San Loco Cantina. The name's changed, but the homey, semi-authentic Mexi-Cancun flair remains. Stop in for a Modelo (Yes, they have Corona too.) T-Mex is one of the best outlets for inexpensive Mexican street food in Fort Lauderdale, this 20-seat joint offers the signature "taco loco." The house specialty is a hard-shell corn taco with a choice of filling and a flour tortilla - spread with refried beans or guacamole - wrapped around it. Also available are burritos, taco salads, quesadillas, and enchiladas - hearty and satisfying homemade fare at fast-food prices. Chili-pepper lovers should check out the "stupid" sauce.
