Our guide will show you some of the best options during your next Disneyland or California Adventure option.
We put this list of best Mexican food near Disneyland together based on proximity to the park and overall satisfaction based on Yelp reviews and personal experience.
A couple of the options are right there in the park, in Downtown Disney as well, or within a close distance right outside the park.
1. Sabroso Mexican Food
Are you seeking some mouthwatering Mexican cuisine? Then head over to Sabroso! Our establishment offers slow-cooked beef, delectable tacos wrapped in homemade tortillas, and much more.
Sabroso! Mexican Grill is a family business that was established by Tito Munoz and his children back in 2012. Through his cooking, Tito has been able to share a glimpse of his hometown Guerrero, Mexico with the world. All of our dishes are handcrafted using recipes that have been passed down through several generations of Munozes.
2. Puesto Mexican Food
Puesto is a favorite Mexican food experience right around the Anahiem/Disney area.
The service and attention to detail is great, friendly and professional. The facilities is super modern, clean, and has an inviting environment with great music. Everything they plate is art. Not to mention the taste.
While on the higher end of pricing, you’ll definitely get what you pay for.
TIP: There is plenty parking on the hotel parking structure and just few feet away from the restaurant.
3. Tortilla Jo’s
Tortilla Jo’s is a great place to go for Mexican food when you’re at Disneyland. The dishes are authentic and the guacamole is made table-side. There are also plenty of margarita options, as there are over 100 varieties of tequila available. The atmosphere is vibrant and pueblo-inspired, making it a fun experience unlike any other restaurant in Downtown Disney.
4. Mi Casa Mexicana
Mi Casa Mexicana specializes in serving classic Mexican food dishes. With a focus on fajitas, you’ll also enjoy a huge variety of other delicious Mexican dishes. Although Mi Casa has only been in business for a short time, their history of cooking great food for families is rich. All of their dishes are inspired by the founders’ grandmother’s recipes, which have been passed down from generation to generation.
Sabrosada, located on 153 W 32nd Street (between 7th Avenue and 6th Avenue) in Manhattan, has been serving mouth-watering Mexican cuisine since 1995. Carne Asada Burritos, Shrimp Burritos, Super Fries, Fish Tacos, and Mini Tacos are some of the dishes served at Sabrosada. They’re changing their name from Alertos Mexican Food to Sabrosada. To create a new brand and experience for our clients, we combined the Spanish words “sabroso” and “asada.”
6. Cocina Cucamonga Mexican Grill
You can find amazing street tacos bursting with flavor near the Pacific Wharf inside California Adventure Park! Their specialty is the birria taco, which is a simple lunch packed with flavor. I loved the seasoning on the beef and the melted cheese! The secret star is the consume (beef stock) which gives these tacos an extra boost of deliciousness. TIP: Also worth a try is their al pastor taco (if you love spicy)!
7. Casa de Pancho Mexican Grill and Cantina
Casa de Pancho add a touch of Mexican flair to your full dining experience, with beautiful live music entertainment. On some nights, you can listen to the 10-piece mariachi band while enjoying delicious food in an inviting atmosphere. Second level parking is recommended for easier access; if you park there, the restaurant will validate part of your ticket!
8. Abuelita’s Birria and Fresh Mexican Food
If you’re looking for amazing birria tacos and delicious consume, Abuelita’s is the place for you. We were blown away by how good the food was – the Birria tacos were crispy perfection, and the consume was rich and flavourful. You can tell that the meat has been marinated and cooked to perfection. We’ll definitely be back soon!
TIP: Make sure you order the consume, as it doesn’t come with every order.
9. Pour Vida Tortillas and Taps
Pour Vida was not disappointing for happy hour! TIP: You may customize your own tacos for $3 each on the happy hour menu, as well as $5 Modelo and Pacifico drafts, house wine, and house margaritas. Yes, you can have a taco meal!
The meat-to-taco ratio is also very satisfying… we were pleasantly full after our meal. We didn’t get to try the Brussels Sprout and Pork & Plantain tacos this time around, but they’re next on our list! The happy hour menu is smaller than the dinner menu, but there’s still plenty of choices.
TIP: If you’re doing take-out or need parking, there are a couple 30 min spots out on the street or a parking structure across the street with free 2-hour parking.
10. Rancho del Zocalo Restaurante
Rancho del Zocalo is one of the best Mexican food places near Disneyland and for good reason – it’s right inside Disneyland! Frontierland to be specific. All of their dishes are made fresh and you won’t have to wait long to get your food. Plus, there’s plenty of seating in their beautifully decorated patio dining area, day or night! If you’re vegan, you’ll be excited to know that the guacamole, chips, tortillas, and flour tortillas are all vegan-friendly.Rancho is one of the few areas in Disneyland that cater to those who follow a paleo diet.
TIP: The cauliflower tacos are highly recommended. The tastes are amazing and you won’t even notice there isn’t meat.
So there you have it – the best Mexican food near Disneyland! And trust me, this is just the tip of the iceberg. There are many other great places to eat in the area, but these are definitely some of the best. So whether you’re looking for a quick bite or a sit-down meal, you’re sure to find something to satisfy your cravings. Bon appetit!
