Best Mexican Restaurant

La Tejana

Staff Pick

Think of Mexican food in St. Louis, and various eateries on Cherokee Street will likely come to mind. But for truly authentic Mexican cuisine, head several miles northwest to a strip mall in Bridgeton. There you'll find La Tejana, a combination grocery store, liquor store, butcher shop and casual restaurant that provides the city's best Mexican experience. La Tejana's taqueria goes far beyond the "chicken" or "beef" peddled at mediocre restaurants, and instead offers tacos filled with what you'd find if you took a motorcycle trip through Mexico and stopped at roadside cafés along the way. Barbacoa, cow head, tongue, goat — the selections are seemingly endless. La Tejana is much more than a taqueria, though. The restaurant also serves everything from menudo to tortas to fajitas, all handmade in house by the Garcia family. This is as real as it gets north of the border. 3149 North Lindbergh Boulevard, Bridgeton, 63074. 314-291-8500,
