Updated 2/20/17

It all began with an innocent question. “I’m new to the area. Where is good for Mexican food?”

It popped up on the Doylestown Facebook page last February and within an hour there must have been three dozen replies (for the full thread, click here). I love Mexican food so it certainly caught my eye. And there were so many places that I had never heard of! It was high time to do a post on Bucks County Mexican restaurants.

One name that kept popping up in the Facebook discussion was Christina Kristofic. She seemed to have really done her homework and had all kinds of good information about where to go. I decided to ask her to lunch at one of her favorite places.

Kristofic is the Social Media Coordinator at Calkins Media Inc. (The Intelligencer, The Bucks County Courier Times and The Burlington County Times). She spends two days a week working at the Courier Times’ office in Levittown where one of her coworkers introduced her to La Mexicana, a small grocery and restaurant in Bristol.

Bucks County Mexican Restaurants Tacos at La Mexicana

La Mexicana is a little hard to find but well worth it. It’s in a small, nondescript shopping center just half a mile from the intersection of Routes 413 & 13 (on the right, heading north on Route 13). You walk through a colorful grocery, filled with both staples and specialty items for the Hispanic community. If you are homesick for Mexico or any other Central American countries, this looks like the place to go. Turn left and head to the back, where a deli counter and four tables form the restaurant portion of La Mexicana.

Tacos, tortas, gorditos, and tamales comprise most of the menu. Choose your meat and your “vehicle” for it: steak, chicken, barbacoa (BBQ beef), pork, buce (pork intestines), chorizo, al pastor (spicy pork with pineapple and onions), cueritos (pork skin) and, Kristofic’s favorites, lengua (beef tongue) and tripa (I’ll let you figure out that one).

I had never had lengua before so I was really looking forward to trying it. Unfortunately it wasn’t available, nor was the tripa. Instead I went for two tacos al pastor and a tamale, with a mango Jarrito to wash it down. Everything was fresh, nicely seasoned and just a bit spicy (with some salsa verde on the side to add some kick). I’m hooked. I’ll be back.

Although you can order in English, I think a bit of Spanish doesn’t hurt. Check out their menu at La Mexicana’s Facebook page and plan ahead. Buen provecho!
