    Zapatas is the only decent one IMO, but still not AMAZING. Adelaide cant seem to do Mexican 100%. But whatever you do, do not eat at Montezumas. Absolute shithole, all of them.

    Mofo, I was at Zapatas about a month ago, it's pretty good. My experiences sit with Zapatas, Montezumas and Zambereros. Zambs is good for a quick bite, Montezumas is crap. Zapatas was good but you'll want to book ahead.

    Maiz and Mezcal most authentic Mexican
    Lucky Lupitas close second
    If you Just want a burrito Zambreros on Rundle delivers

    Maiz and Mezcal is very good.

    Zapatas was 'okay' for myself. It didn't feel as "authentic" as Maiz and Mezcal.

    I'm yet to try Lucky Lupita's, it's on the 'to do' list and I'm very much hoping it lives up to the hype.

    agree with pretty much what's been said here.

    maiz and lucky lupitas are first and second, depending on what you order.

    ariba grill is nice if you just want burrito. don't forget la catina for mobile Mexican!
