The Highest-Rated Mexican Restaurants in Cedar Rapids
When it comes to Mexican food, there are LOTS of options here in the Corridor! The question is: which ones are the best?
To answer this question, I turned to Yelp. I searched for the highest-rated Mexican restaurants in the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City areas, and then went down a rabbit hole of AMAZING food photos on Instagram. I've been to quite a few Mexican restaurants in my last 6+ years here in Iowa, but after putting together these lists, I realized there are still SO many I have yet to try. I've somehow only had two of the top five here in Cedar Rapids, and NONE of the top five in Iowa City! It looks like I've got some eating to do...
