Where are the top Mexican Restaurants in Bentonville AR? Glad you asked!
What constitutes Mexican or Tex-Mex cuisine? They both originate from our southern border, however, Tex-Mex is Mexican food with a Texas version. When Mexican food began to spread north across the border many years ago, our cooks began substituting ingredients like yellow cheese, wheat flour, beef, canned tomatoes, cumin and black beans thus producing a different, yet delicious variation.
Most of the food we eat from Mexico is Tex-Mex, however, there are still many authentic Mexican food restaurants in existence.
