When it comes to Mexican food, Peoria has some great options and restaurants, but one of my favorite places for genuine Mexican food is Hacienda El Mirador in Junction City. The food is delicious and made from original recipes from the owners, Julia and Lucas.
In addition to wonderful lunch and dinners, it’s one of the few places to get an authentic Mexican breakfast. Plus it’s one of the friendliest places to dine at in Peoria, Julia, Lucas and the entire staff definitely make you feel welcome and comfortable while dining in this charming Mexican restaurant.
