Located just a stone's throw from Taunton's main shopping street, The Old Mexican enjoys a central, vibrant location. The restaurant has stood on Lower Middle Street for over 20 years and has rightly become one of the most popular restaurants in the area.

All dishes are freshly prepared on the premises and taste honest and delicious. I can thoroughly recommend the ceviche - white fish cooked in lemon juice, accompanied by an oil dressing, peppers and jalapenos, served with corn chips and wheat bread. You may prefer The Old Mexican's 'poppers' - red and green chillies filled with cream cheese, breadcrumbed and deep-fried, served with a chilli dressing. The main courses (or platos fuertes) cater for all tastes. There are items that are familiar, like the chilli con carne and spicy lamb steak, but why not try a beef burrito, chicken fajita or maybe a sweet potato enchilada. There's a great selection of Continental beers, cocktails and a revamped wine list to accompany your meal; or maybe round things off with a tequila or traditional mezcal - complete with agave worm.

The atmosphere at The Old Mexican is relaxed and convivial, the food fantastic and there are most definitely no sombreros or droopy moustaches - just an authentic Mexican experience.
