One of the very few things in this life right now that helps me not think about the current pandemic shutdown reality is Mexican food.  There's just something about it that puts it a whole step above the regular comfort food when it comes to creating an edible escape from all of this masked craziness.  Maybe it's the spices, the fact that you can put literally anything in a tortilla, or that I get it to go so I don't have to cook and clean again - but whatever it is, it's getting me through the tough times.

We have some excellent choices in the Shreveport / Bossier City area when it comes to the greatest gift the Mexican people have ever given us (sorry earthquake-resistant foundations and color TV).  Now, we can claim that the #1 spot for authentic south-of-the-border food.  24/7 Tempo reviewed the top-rated restaurants nationwide in the Mexican category on Yelp.  To be in the running for this ranking, these locations had to be "in or near a city with a population of at least 100,000 people."

The final numbers are in, and (drum-roll please) El Cabo Verde has been named the absolute best Mexican restaurant in the entire state of Louisiana!  This Shreveport gem is proud to serve up pork tamales wrapped in banana leaves, Louisiana Gulf shrimp with mojo sauce, and makes their own delicious tortillas!
