Default Favorite Mexican Restaurant

We love Mexican food and typically visit a Mexican restaurant every week. I would appreciate comments on Mexican restaurants in or near The Villages. I know there are many and I'm sure we have missed a few.
Last night we went to Casa Agave in Wildwood accross from the CVS. The food was excellent and the waitress was very attentive and pleasant. We would recommend them.

You should try La Palma on 441 in Leesburg, Fiesta Grande in Colony Plaza, Ay!Jalisco in Spanish Springs, and Brisas del Mar on 441 in Lady Lake. And, I hate to say it, but my favorite mexican restaurant is Taco Bell.

Ay! Jalisco is a good representation of western Mexican food. I get their single beef taco with rice and beans, usually. It's not ground chuck, it's more of a lightly seasoned beef stew with nice chunks of potato in it. The salsa roja is disappointing to my personal tastes, but it's authentic. The western Mexican salsa roja is more like a slightly spicy ketchup. But if you prefer a chunky blend to dip your chips into you could order a side of pico de gallo and mix a bit of salsa into it. I like the pico with a fork, and I like some on my taco as well.

Their pina colada wasn't all that great, I like the ones they make right in the Spanish Springs town square outdoor bar better.

We like Fiesta Grande at Colony Center. A very friendly and professional staff. Great food, cold beverages, and a personable hands on owner.

Fiesta Grande at Colony Plaza on the right end of the shopping center. We eat there about once a month for the past 8 years. My favorite is the lunch steak fajitas and they are terrific. Ay! Jalisco on Main St in Spanish Springs is good as well, my favorite is lunch taco with rice.

Ay Jalisco in SS, great food at a very reasonable price. One of our three or four go to places that is golf cart accessable to get a great and consistent quality meal.

Although it’s about 23 miles from Calumet Grove in the North end of the villages we have found Las Margaritas On SR 200 in Ocala to be our favorite.
