December 1st, 2021 by

Looking for a fun place to enjoy Taco Tuesday or a family-friendly eatery to take the kids this weekend? Look no further than the many Mexican restaurants in Flint, MI. Whether you’re looking for traditional ground beef tacos or a taco salad loaded with meat, cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes, you’re sure to find it in the area.

Soriano’s Mexican Kitchen

Stop by Soriano’s Mexican Kitchen, located at the corner of Saginaw Street and Court Street in downtown Flint, for tacos, burritos, and more.

While tacos are a mainstay on Soriana’s menu, you’ll find plenty of other options, such as nachos, quesadillas, and burritos, as well. Soriano’s is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and is closed on the weekends.

Here, romaine lettuce is used in place of a shell and the tacos are served with grilled vegetables, avocado, and shredded cheese on the side. If you’d like a taco salad, Casa Real’s version features a fried flour tortilla filled with ground beef or chicken and covered with lettuce, shredded cheese, tomatoes, and sour cream.  

Casa Real’s menu is extensive, so if you’re eating with a group or decide you want to order something other than tacos, you’ll find plenty of options. Its hours vary throughout the week, so check the website for more information.      

La Azteca Mexican House

Visit La Azteca Mexican House, located at 1902 W. Court St., for tacos, quesadillas, enchiladas, and more.

Treat yourself to a midweek date night and celebrate Taco Tuesday at La Azteca where you’ll enjoy 70-cent tacos. For an added treat, order a Mexican Coke to go with your meal. Mexican Coke is made in Mexico and contains cane sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup. It’s not as widely available in the United States as traditional soft drink products are, so ordering one can make a fun addition to your night out.
