Pancho Villa

North Hobart

With its dark stone, black candles and wall of decorative skulls, Pancho Villa is a sleek gothic lair of tasty goodness. Enjoy top-shelf tequilas beneath the glinting chandelier, and take your pick from the rich bounty of authentic Mexican cuisine. We’re rather partial to the Chilli Marinated Wallaby Fillet served with salsa and black mole sauce, ourselves. That’s Mexican with a delicious Aussie twist. Yum! Find out more

Amigo’s Mexican Restaurant

North Hobart

Amigo’s has been bringing Mexico to Hobart for decades now, and shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. It’s always a party here, with big crowds and colourful stylings creating an infectiously cheerful atmosphere. The food is huge in size and flavour, with the ‘Pork Verde Mole’ being a firm favourite. That’s marinated pork belly with a special guacamole, served with rice and tangy salsa. Lovely! Find out more

Sons of Baja

North Hobart

Mixing classic Mexican décor with a New-Age twist (think minimalist wireframe cacti draped in fairy lights), Sons of Baja is a spacious, modern setting for some fine Central American grub. The drinks are affordable, the couches are comfy, and the tacos are only five bucks on Tuesdays! Make sure you try the guajillo braised lamb one, stuffed with creamy buttermilk chipotle coleslaw.

TacoTaco Food Truck


The next time you’re wandering Hobart in search of sustenance, remember keep an eye out for a certain moustachioed food truck. TacoTaco is a speedy, no-hassle source of proper tacos, reputed to give even the soft-shell masters of California a run for their money. The small, yet cheap and focused menu is very strong indeed, and we can’t get enough of the Pulled Pork with Burnt Orange Slaw. Find out more

What’s better than Mexican food? Mexican food with a side of good deeds, of course! The good folks at Zambrero donate one meal to charity for every burrito and bowl they sell, with nearly 8.5 million hungry souls fed so far. Naturally, this flourishing food chain doesn’t just get by on its charitable reputation. The food is genuinely great, with the ‘Dos Capas’ taco (a crispy taco shell encased in a delicious soft tortilla) being a particular highlight. Find out more
