Enter to Win

For more than 25 years, Asheville has made a name for itself for fresh, delicious, and creative Mexican and Latin food—and the list of restaurants continues to grow! While tacos and burritos are always crowd-pleasing, at Asheville restaurants you will discover so much more, including molcajetes (hot lava rock bowls filled with veggies or meat), stuffed fried plantains, and ceviche (fresh fish marinated in lime juice), to name a few. And don’t forget the fancy drinks! From jalapeno margaritas to daiquiris and fresh-juiced cocktails, there’s something to quench every thirst.
