Guide Review - La Cucaracha Mexican Restaurante
World famous or not, La Cucaracha is famous in St. Paul. The happy hour is very popular, it's always busy on summer evenings, and usually busy at other times too.
The food is a little more expensive than hole-in-the wall Mexican restaurants, but comes in big plate-fulls, and they use some organic ingredients, and many locally-sourced foods. The menu has all the Mexican staples plus other interesting dishes, some fusions with other styles of cooking, that keep customers coming back to try more dishes.
