I've compiled a list of some of the best Mexican restaurants that Miami has to offer. And I’ll give you the address and website to all of these locations so that way you can check out the menu or stop by if something catches your eye. You are in luck today because I can tell you in advance that this list features some of the absolute most authentic Mexican food you can find in Miami. And if it’s the most authentic Mexican food you can find in Miami, then by extension it is probably some of the most authentic Mexican cuisine you can find anywhere in the country.

La Diosa Taqueria comes in at number one on my list of best Mexican places in Miami Florida for one very simple reason. Even though they have hundreds of reviews, they boast a five star rating from their customers and consumer base. That means that time after time they are delivering the absolute best tacos to their patrons. And they are doing this every single time.
I write about restaurants for a living and it’s fairly common to see four and a half star rated restaurants with hundreds of reviews. After all it’s impossible to please everybody so after so many customers the five star rating is bound to get averaged down. But that is not the case at La Diosa Taqueria, and it is for that very simple reason I can recommend them in the number one post on my list today. They are leaving every single customer beyond satisfied. And if you don’t believe it, check out one of their five star reviews.
“This place is a hidden Gem!The tacos are incredibly good! Especially the Birria tacos! Also, our server, Yesid, was wonderful and very attentive.Definitely coming back” - Yelp Review
La Diosa Taqueria is one of the thousands of restaurants that accepts digital GiftYa gift cards but it is also among one of the highest rated Mexican restaurants in Miami!

I’m gonna be honest, I don’t speak Spanish. And so much of what I could tell you about Taqueria Viva Mexico is written in Spanish and I can’t decipher it. That being said, from what I can decipher, Taqueria Viva Mexico is going to have the absolute best street tacos you can find anywhere in Miami. And since Florida has such a high hispanic American population, and the fact that all the information about the restaurant online is in Spanish, you can bet that you are going to be getting the absolute most authentic Mexican food you can find anywhere in Miami. Possibly anywhere in the United states.
“This is the best street tacos in Miami in the heart of Little Havana. You get the tacos you want and all the additions to make your own and they have a good selection of beers too. The staff is very friendly even if you're a gringo.” - Yelp Review
Taqueria Viva Mexico doesn’t offer GiftYa digital gift cards just yet, but check back soon because we are always adding Mexican restaurants and attractions in Miami!
365 N Royal Poinciana Blvd | Miami Springs | atacobydivino.com
I wanted to include A Taco By Divino at the top of the list today because I am always worried about giving too little of a variety when I compose lists on the best Mexican or Chinese restaurants in a city. It’s hard to get a huge diversity when you are hamstrung to write about one type, and only one type of restaurant.
And that is what brings A Taco By Divino up to third place on my list today. It provides a nice break from the standard Mexican food you might find on the rest of my list today. A Taco By Divino features a hybrid of Mexican and Peruvian inspired dishes. So if you are looking for a new take on an old classic, or you just love trying fusion restaurants, then A Taco By Divino is going to be my recommendation as the Mexican restaurant in Miami that you should check out.
“The food was excellent and our server, Luna, was absolutely the best! She made the best recommendations on the dishes and treated us with a world class service! Thank you all for making the food and experience outstanding! Will definitely return to this establishment again!” - Yelp Review
You can’t get a digital GiftYa gift card to A Taco by Divino at the moment but be sure to check back soon as new Mexican restaurants and locations in Miami are added all the time!
13856 SW 56th St | Miami |.facebook.comAntojitos-Mexicanos-Tenorio
Although they have been around since 2007, Antojitos doesn’t have a strong online presence. But what I can tell you about them is that they boast a four and a half star rating from their customers on Yelp which is quite high given that they have hundreds of reviews in. I can also tell you that they claim to make the most authentic Mexican food in Miami. So you can take them at their word or you can give them a try and find out for yourself. Who has the most authentic Mexican food in Miami. Antojitos Mexicanos Tenorio or Taqueria Viva Mexico?
“This establishment has amazing service and the food is spot on. We were so busy eating that we forgot to take better photos. Trust me when I say please go over there and enjoy this amazing establishment. Servers are so great and the food comes out fast. - Yelp Review
Unfortunately Antojitos Mexicanos Tenorio isn’t one of the Mexican restaurants in Miami participating with GiftYa just yet, but check back soon cause they might be any day now.
1961 SW 8th St | Little Havana | mirinconcitomx.com
I mean I don’t know what else to say about this one. It is in a part of Miami referred to as Little Havanna. If that doesn’t immediately strike images of authenticity into your mind, then I’m not sure what I could put on this list that would. Like many of the restaurants on the list today, Mi Riconcito Mexicano can boast incredibly authentic Mexican food right in the heart of Miami. What separates Mi Riconcito Mexicano from the other Mexican restaurants in Miami is the fact that it is set in such a perfect neighborhood for great Mexican food. The ambiance isn’t just in the restaurant. IUt’s outside the doors and in the neighborhood as well. If you are looking for authentic Mexican food in Miami then look no further.
“I finally decided to eat at the restaurant and I was blown away by their flavor. I had their Chile en nogada since it was in season and I am soooo glad I chose this dish. When I tell you to be aware of what's in season, I mean it. The flavor was out of this world and took me back to Mexico.
We had to wait about 15 mins for a table but it was very well worth it. Will definitely be coming here more often to eat and not just for their baked goods” - Yelp Review
Right now you aren’t able to get a GiftYa digital gift card to Mi Rinconcito Mexicano but check back because there’s more Mexican restaurants and stores in Miami added all the time.

If you are looking for the freshest Mexican food you can find in Miami, then Xochimex Cantina Grill is going to be the spot for you. They guarantee that your food is made fresh on site without ever being frozen. So you know that each meal is prepared fresh for you each day. And that is a hard standard to beat I have to say. As somebody who has put many deliveries away in a freezing cold freezer for a myriad of restaurants, that is a very difficult thing to accomplish. So it is almost kind of inspiring that Xochimex is able to do so.
“Outstanding authentic Mexican food made very fresh right in front of you. The tortillas are pressed and grilled to perfection while you choose your protein, and then select from 15 or so toppings. Wash it down with some Jarritos, and you'll be in Mexican heaven… …This is the real deal.” - Yelp Review
There aren’t GiftYa digital gift cards available for Xochimex Cantina Grill as of the date of this writing, but there might be now! Be sure to check GiftYa itself for all the gift cards available for Mexican restaurants in Miami.
