Laredo, Texas, which is located on the north bank of the Rio Grande River, is home to a bustling international trade with Mexico as well as an array of dining options featuring authentic Mexican cuisine. Visit a family-owned grill for blackened fish tacos, Mexican-style steak preparations and camarons. For another take on south-of-the-border cuisine, you can sample home-cooked Mayan dishes, including beef tongue medallions, pickled and onion-topped marinated chicken and breaded beef steak with green chile sauce. Mexican quick-lunch options include enchiladas, chiles rellenos and tacos at a small, colorful, family-run eatery. Laredo is also home to pan-Latin cuisine eateries that serve Peruvian-style seafood alongside Salvadoran grilled favorites. Try an Asian-fusion restaurant that marries Mexican flavors with fresh sushi. You'll also find many Tex-Mex restaurants where you can enjoy pizza and burgers alongside generous portions of fajitas.
