In honor of Cinco de May, News 6 viewers shared their favorite Mexican restaurants with us on social media.

There were some stand-out favorites amongst the votes, as well as a long list of other recommendations.

So, if you’re in the mood for a taco road trip, we have the list just for you.

With the most votes was Don Julio Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar. Lucky for Central Floridians, there are several locations to choose from. There are three in Orlando with the restaurant calling their locations Chickasaw, Waterford Lakes and Eagle Creek. And then there’s one more in Lake Mary.

Next up in total votes was Pablano’s Mexican Grill in Altamonte Springs. The restaurant can be found at 1370 East Altamonte Drive.

There was a four-way tie for the next set of votes.

Viewers also strongly recommended El Zocalo in downtown Sanford, El Tenampa in Orlando, Garibaldi Mexican Restaurant & Bar which has locations in Apopka and on Sand Lake Road in Orlando as well as La Hacienda in Ocala.
