Best Mexican restaurant in South Florida 2017: Casa Frida Mexican Cuisine

BEST MEXICAN

Casa Frida Mexican Cuisine

5441 N. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale; 954-530-3668; CasaFridaMexicanCuisine.com

Mexican doesn’t get more authentic than Casa Frida. The 50-seat restaurant is decorated with Mexican folk art and Frida Kahlo posters. The menu features many dishes not seen at other Mexican restaurants, which makes deciding exciting and difficult. The guacamole, which is quite affordable ($7), is fresh and light. The sangria is a perfect combination of ingredients. And the beans, all of which are refried in vegetable oil, are out of this world.
