DENVER, CO - MAY 04: A plate of enchiladas is carried through a Cinco de Mayo festival on May 4, 2013 in Denver, Colorado. Hundreds of thousands of people were expected to attend the two day event, billed as the largest Cinco de Mayo celebration in the United States.

Charlotte is quickly becoming a culturally diverse city and along with that comes great food!

We all get a taste for some Latin flavors in our system once in a while because I know I do. There’s nothing like that yellow rice & beans combo, tacos, and some good avocado dip. YUM YUM YUM. Now keep in mind these places have some BOMB Latin food but they also have some BOMB drinks. OKK!

1. Sabor Latin Street Grill: This place has many locations across Charlotte and they’re known for their tasty nachos.

2. Azteca: Now this menu has a variety of yummy things to eat, all Mexican authentic food from Enchiladas, Fajitas, and Arroz con Pollo they have all of your favorite Latin dishes. Also, I have to mention the margaritas are everything. Azteca has various locations in Charlotte.

3. Don Pedro Mexican Restaurant: Another popular restaurant around Charlotte with many locations, Don Pedro is there to fill your needs. Similar to Azteca their dishes are alike and both great. You are determined to get your money’s worth.

4. Anita’s Mexican Grill: Now this place is very lowkey, and people are missing out. Next to a gas station, so don’t be alarmed the food is amazing! During lunch hour this place gets packed with their delicious Tacos (my favorite) but everybody’s favorite is “The Speedy Gonzalez” that comes with a taco, enchilada, & rice or beans all that for $5.25 + tax. Can’t beat that.

5. Papi’s Puerto Rican Cuisine: Puerto Rican dishes just touched Charlotte in the best way possible. Located right on University this place is a true definition of authentic Puerto Rican food.  I recommend trying out Mofongo if you’re a fan of fried plantains also Arroz con Gandules (Pigeon Peas).
