The Original Mexican Restaurant
Since 1988, The Original Mexican Restaurant has been serving delicious made-from-scratch meals that have been enjoyed by people from all over. We serve classic Mexican meals right in the heart of the River Walk. You can choose from an array of everyday favorites, such as our fresh grilled fajitas and hand rolled enchiladas, or one of our house specialties like chile rellenos or carne guisada. It may be difficult to decide, but impossible to disappoint.
Of course what better way to enjoy your meal than with our refreshing margaritas. They are smooth, but pack quite the punch. One doesn't have to settle for just a regular lime margarita either; we have multiple flavors available that will be sure to please even the choosiest palate.
And a stop at the original isn't complete until you've experienced our decadent cheesecake. Made in house, this cheesecake promises to be the thickest, creamiest, and most authentic one you've had in years. It can be enjoyed with our sour cream topping, or kicked up a notch with either a strawberry, caramel, or goldbrick chocolate sauce topping.
