Check out Haute Living’s picks for the top five Mexican restaurants in The Hamptons.
1 La Superica
At the top of every Mexican menu are the margaritas, and La Superica boasts some of the best in The Hamptons. The frozen margaritas are giant and super sweet and the perfect margarita is a La Superica staple. The quesadillas and enchiladas are menu favorites, but anything you choose is sure to please.
2 La Fondita
Enjoy a little slice of Mexico at La Fondita. The small restaurant serves traditional Mexican food reminiscent of street food found in markets and taquerias in Mexico. Grab your Posole Rojo and Tostados to go, or enjoy them in the restaurant’s outdoor garden.
3 Blue Parrot Bar & Grill
Reopened in 2009, Blue Parrot prides itself on being a fun and quirky Tex-Mex bar and restaurant. The restaurant uses the freshest local produce, fish, poultry and cheese to prepare its common Mexican fare of quesadillas, burritos and nachos. Finish off your meal with the Dirty Bird Margarita, served in a mason jar.
4 Agave’s Blue Cactus
Opened by siblings Al Geldmacher and Joanne Healy, Agave’s Blue Cactus offers delicious Mexican food at an affordable price. The most popular menu items are the grilled chicken burritos and the grilled chicken fajitas, while the chef’s favorite is the grilled sesame tuna tacos. And no Mexican meal is complete without a margarita. Agave’s Blue Cactus uses fresh fruit for its drinks, like the Blue Cactus Margarita with fresh blueberries and freshly squeezed limes.
5 The Hideaway
The name is right. The Hideaway is tucked in the back of Diamond Cove Marina with only a red chili pepper hanging from the roadside sign to give it away. But the food makes the search for this open-air restaurant worth it. Stuffed jalapeno peppers are a crowd favorite, but The Hideaway also offers ceviche of the day, prickly cactus salad and traditional Mexican food like burritos and chilaquiles. The restaurant was so difficult to find, why not try it all?
