When it comes to Mexican food, everybody has their favorites. Whether you prefer tacos, burritos, or quesadillas, there's one thing we all love — the chips and salsa!
With National Tortilla Chip Day coming up on February 24th, we thought it would be a great time to ask our real estate agents about their favorite Mexican restaurants. Not surprisingly, the same names kept coming up. If you're ready to fiesta, head on out to one (or more!) of these local hot spots.
