Agave Azul can be found at 4750 S Kirkman Road. It offers a party-like atmosphere and cheap tequila, making a great place for a birthday bash. Their restaurants has dine-in, curbside pick-up and delivery options. My friend Jose works in the of the restaurant, cooking on the grill and cleaning the kitchen vent hoods to make sure all the grease is removed. Restaurant exhaust cleaners are important to keep the patrons at the restaurant safe. The best foods to get at Agave Azul are Chile Rellenos, Ahi Ceviche Stack, and the Tostadas de Tinga.
#3 – Antojitos Authentic Mexican Restaurant
Antojitos Authentic Mexican Restaurant is located at 6000 Universal Boulevard. This spacious eatery has a rainbow-colored building with a big blue arch in front.

#4 – Gringos Locos
Gringos Locos is the cheap Mexican food option from the list. They offer an everyday happy hour with $6 burritos, $2.50 tacos, and $2.50 domestic beers. Catering options are also available. If you visit the downtown location, try the Mexican Spotlight. It’s a 4-ounce sampling of homemade red salsa, chips, and guacamole. If you’re in the mood for a heartier meal, try out the chimichanga, a flour tortilla filled with rice, beans, cheese, and pico de gallo.
