Real Mexico is located off the I20 and it is totally worth deviating from the highway. It was some of the best Mexican I’ve had this year. I had a feeling I was in for a good meal when I saw that the parking lot was almost full.

I’m a bit careful when ordering at a new Mexican place. You need to test these places out before getting adventurous. I ordered the shrimp tacos. WOAH! Can I tell you these were slammin’. The shrimp was fresh and perfectly cooked, and had a touch of sweetness. The salsa on the tacos was off-the-hook delicious. The plate came with five tacos…and I ATE THEM ALL!

If I had known how good this place was, I would have ordered something more daring. Maybe you’ll do that for me and let me know how it goes.
