Mexico Booth Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

Mexico Booth Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

There’s no denying the Mexico pavilion is a popular one – and so is the Mexico booth at Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival.

More often than not, we are not fans of this festival marketplace. The food and drinks never really resonate with us. But, we are glad to report that this year we loved the two main food dishes being served.

You can’t go wrong with the Tostada de Carnitas and Taco de Costilla. Speaking of the Tostada de Carnitas, here’s a tip for vegetarians: you can order this without the pork and add extra black beans. Allyson loved (like, really loved) this and highly suggests this as a vegetarian option!

And let’s not forget the margaritas. It wouldn’t be a stop in the Mexico pavilion without some tequila, right?

Keep in mind that these beverages are on the pricier side, especially for the size. Once again, the beer at the Mexico booth is simply a “Mexican Craft Beer” that’s priced higher compared to other festival booths. It wasn’t our overall favorite, so we recommend spending your beer money elsewhere.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Mexico booth, including reviews, photos, and our must-trys.

When it comes to our reviews and ratings, we thought it would be helpful if you had a better understanding of our personal preferences (what we like and don’t like), along with if there are any dietary restrictions.

Here’s a breakdown of not only who is doing the reviews, but a little more information about what each of us likes and doesn’t like food and drink-wise.

Shannon (Founder)

  • Likes: Almost everything
  • Dislikes: Beers that taste “stinky,” anything too salty
  • Dietary Restrictions: None

Heather (Editor)

  • Likes: Strong flavors, anything made out of potatoes, white wines, all beers (especially stouts and wheat beers), doesn’t mind sweet (plain fruit is NOT a dessert. Ever.)

Photos & Reviews

Tostada de Carnitas

Braised Pork on a fried corn tortilla with black beans, avocado mousse, queso fresco and chives.

Mexico Tostada
  • Price: $7.75
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 4.7/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: I was not a fan of Mexico last year, BUT this tostada is fire. Listen. So much flavor, and the shell is crunchy even though it is raining. Thank you, Mexico pavilion. You have made my day.
Felicia: This is good. The tostada is super flavorful, the beans are cooked well and the carnitas are well prepared.
Allyson: So glad Heather thought to order one without the meat for me and to add extra black beans. Wow! Such a great option. So tasty. Also keep in mind this is on the pricier side.

Taco de Costilla

Slow-braised beef short rib on a corn tortilla with salsa de chile morita, avocado mousse, and spring onions.

Mexico Taco
  • Price: $8.00
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 5.0/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: Please. Make this always be a thing. Everything here is SO good! This taco is DELICIOUS. Fantastic flavor.
Felicia: Goodness, this is good. Slightly spicy with a hearty flavor in the meat. Onion and cilantro is nice and the salsa and mousse add nice acidity. Love it.

Pastel Impossible

Layers of traditional Mexican flan and tres leches with guava and cajeta.

Mexico Flan
  • Price: $6.00
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: Oh, pretty little dessert – why do you LOOK so terrible but taste so good. This is straight up WATERY. But yet delicious??? Is this the dichotomy that we all seek? Maybe. Or maybe not.
Felicia: This is 5 for flavor and 1 for texture. Slightly sweet and pleasant, but it’s bread in a liquid sauce so it’s soggy and odd.
Allyson: I’m not sure how I feel about this. The texture is strange and mushy, but it also tastes really good? How should I feel? I don’t know so I’ll give it a 3.

Trouble in Paradise Margarita

Ilegal Mezcal, Combier Watermelon Liqueur, rosé wine, lime juice, and agave with a chili-lime powder rim. 

Mexico Trouble In Paradise
  • Price: $12.50
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: Mezcal > tequila and anyone who says anything else hates puppies.
Felicia: Another meh margarita. Watery, flavorless. Can’t even taste the mezcal which is usually a really strong flavor. Just not worth it.
Allyson: Just ok. Too smoky for my liking. Also the tajin rim is too much for me.

Fly Away Margarita

Nocheluna Sotol, pineapple-ginger juice, Chile Ancho Verde liqueur, and Amber Blanco tequila with a sweet dried chili salt rim.

Mexico Fly Away
  • Price: $13.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 1.7/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: In my next life I want to come back as someone who likes margaritas. I bet the friends who go out for margaritas and queso have fun. I want to be like them.
Felicia: This isn’t great. Not a good value, it’s watery, and honestly not much flavor. Was excited based on the description but it’s just meh.
Allyson: No. Never again. Just not my style of margarita.

Mexican Craft Beer

This is a Mexican Craft Beer. It’s unclear what kind it is or who brews it, but you could say it’s comparable to Modelo Negra.

Mexico Lager
  • Price: $5.50 (6 oz.)/ $11.00 (12 oz.)
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.5/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Delicious light citrus beer.
Heather: Solid beer. No tricks. No flare. Just a good BEER.
Felicia: This is a mystery “craft beer” that is just okay. Not sure what it is. Since they won’t even name what it is, I wouldn’t get it.
Allyson: I really liked this. Good flavor. Reminds me of Modelo Negra.
