1709 Berryville Pike Suite B, Winchester, VA - Map
I am an actual Mexican national and let me tell you that this place is the closest you will get to REAL Mexican food in Winchester.
This isn't pappy's favorite Tex Mex Joint.
The Tacos and Sopes are out of this world and are as close as you will get to the real deal.
You have to appreciate the homemade tortillas and hot sauces. You will rarely find a restaurant that does this. The tortillas are what make the Tacos the best in town.
My favorites are the Asada (grilled steak) and beef tongue Tacos. If you're still hungry try anything else. It's all great!
we went here on a whim, and have been back countess times because the food was so delicious. don't let the location turn you off. THIS FOOD IS GREAT!
On Monday, July 29, 2013 I had lunch at Delicias Mexicanas, 1709 Berryville Pike, Suite B. This is one of three businesses sharing this building at the northeast corner of Berryville Pike and Regency Lake Drive. Suite A is occupied by an Exxon station and Suite C houses La Flor Blanca, which I reviewed earlier this year on February 11. It's the only situation I know of where two Mexican restaurants are next-door neighbors. Several different schedules are shown for hours of operation, depending on where you look. The newest sign says that the place is open six days a week from 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM, and is closed on Tuesday, according to a sign out front. However, another sign also out front, apparently older, and the printed menu show it as open from 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM, and does not mention being closed on Tuesday. The phone number is (540) 535-2082, and charge cards are accepted. The site has its own parking lot. The menu's groupings include Salads, Soups, Tacos, Dishes, Huaraches, Sopes, Tostados, Tortas, Tamales, Extras, Breakfast, Platters, Beverages, and Coffee. I ordered a Ham, Egg and Cheese Platter, with a Mexican Coke in a 12-ounce bottle. I was given a straw, but it was too sort to reach the bottom and I asked for a glass. The platter was chopped ham and cheese on top of scrambled eggs, with yellow rice and only a dab of refried beans. The serving included a covered bowl with two very warm tamales, which I used to make tacos. Later, the waitress brought me a small bowl with a green salsa, instead of a tomato-based mixture. It was very spicy, but helped to add taste to the otherwise bland serving. It was a mistake to order the platter on my first visit; I should have chosen one of the more traditional Mexican dishes, such as Huaraches, Sopes, or Tortas. I'll have to make another visit to give it a proper rating; for now, I'll call it merely good. There were three Hispanic women servers, and I had trouble communicating with them in English. Several times a younger woman who may have been second-generation had to interpret for me. Delicias is a small place, with the entrance on the left. A refrigerated glass case up front against the left wall displays bottled beverages. Beyond that is an L-shaped counter where you place your order, with a range behind it against the left wall. Seating is two tables for four in the room's center, with three tables for four along the right wall. A pair of stools were at the far end of the counter. The food was good, and the place is now on my keeper list.
