Food… It can bring us together in a time of need.  And it can create family memories around a table.  It can do so many things.  But there’s one food we can all agree on at any given time.  Mexican food.  So, where is the best Mexican food in Augusta and Aiken?  That’s the question we are about to attack and hit head-on!

Of all the restaurants we have in our area, we probably have more Mexican restaurants than any other type of food.  That then opens the door as to who is the best.  The fun part about having so many, you can try them all till you find the one you like

The Most Popular Single Items To Order

Now you may choose different meats, chicken, or cheese for these items, but these are the most ordered items in Mexican restaurants:

  1. Burrito
  2. Tacos
  3. Quesadillas
  4. Nachos
  5. Tamales
  6. Fajitas

Where is my go-to favorite Mexican Restaurant?  Well, it is in Warrenton. El Maguey Mexican Bar and Grill.  It’s located at 725 Main Street in Warrenton.  For me, living in Aiken County, it is a road trip and worth every second of the drive.  They are family-owned and operated, and the food is on point.  I’ve never left there without a to-go box.  The portions are super big and super delicious.  My go-to there is the Burrito Cancun.  A large tortilla with steak, chicken, shrimp, rice, and beans then topped with cheese dip and red burrito sauce.

I promise you, there will be leftovers for later in the day or for lunch tomorrow.  They also have a new location in Wrens too.  Now I can’t drive to Warrenton every time I want a great Mexican meal, chips, and cheese dip, but there are so many great locations to pick from.
