Another Good Mexican Restaurant Opens In Clearwater
Why is it all the best Mexican restaurants are on the Pinellas side of Tampa Bay? I got spoiled by having great Mexican food everywhere while living in California for 6 years. Finding a spot with a great burrito, legit salsa, and perfectly prepared rice and beans in Florida can be tough.
Hillsborough does have one spot I love – Miguel’s on Kennedy in Tampa is pretty amazing. I love their Alambres Miguel fajitas with sautéed chorizo, jack cheese, onions, red & green bell peppers with grilled beef & chicken. But otherwise, all of my go to spots are on the Pinellas side of Tampa Bay: Que Pasa in St. Pete, Señor Taco in Pinellas Park, or Huarache Azteca and Don Pancho Villa both in Clearwater.
Now there’s another Pinellas spot on my approved list. Grand Hacienda just opened up on Ulmerton Road in Feather Sound. It made my top 5 list after only one visit. To my surprise though, it’s not a one off. There are already Grand Hacienda restaurants in St. Pete Beach, downtown St. Pete, at the Tyrone Square Mall and in Tampa on Sheldon Road. Let me show you around.
If you wanna give Grand Hacienda a try, pop 2325 Ulmerton Rd, Clearwater, FL 33762 into your GPS. They’re about 3 minutes off the Ulmerton Road Exit if you’re taking the exit off 275. They’re across from the Starbucks near the Shell Station. Their phone number is (727) 623-9140.
