Anyone know of any Mexican Restraunts in the BVI? My wife and I love Mexican but have not found any yet. Any help out there?

Sure do - there is a fairly decent Mexican restaurant in the east end of Tortola called "Emiles". It is right across the road from the Harborview Marina.

We have eaten there several times and - for the most part - enjoyed our food. The only dish that I have not liked there were their fajitas, which had a taste of curry in them. Not that curry is bad - it just does not belong in Mexican food.

Note to self: be sure to specify "no curry" the next time at Emile's.

How does the food compare to the Mexican food one would get in TX or CA??????? Having lived in SOCAL for 13 years we were spoiled by great Mexican food. I stopped trying to find any decent Mexican food on the east cost years ago. Rio Grande (tex mex chain) is the only place we'll eat at here - it's not bad, but boy do I miss the SOCAL food.

Not even close. Even Taco Bell beats the hell out of it. But - after a while on Tortola, it does scratch the itch for Mexican. And you can't get Carib at Taco Bell.

Alrighty then, I guess its bring our own flour tortillas and buy the enchilada sauce, cheese, onions, etc at the market. Making cheese enchiladas on the boat sounds like the Mexican food fix we will go with. I did ask a fellow from PR about Mexican food once and he just gave me a cold stare. Shocked

That's what we did - definitely better than Taco Bell!!!!!. We were able to get flour tortillas at the market. Made quesadias and nachos too.Riteway sells the Old El paso products. We do bring our own seasoning for the tacos altough that is sold too.

Jolly Roger actually has some pretty fair Mexican food. We have a Mexican convenience store here(which is giving the town fathers a stroke) and I love it when the delivery truck from one of their suppliers is parked out front. On the side in big red letters BIMBO

Emiles has really gone down hill in the last 6 months, going to try it one more time this weekend.
