Restaurant Journeys: Angelica’s Mexican Grill

By SGHW Staff

Do not expect the ordinary at Angelica’s – they’re not like any other Mexican restaurant – they’re better! Currently ranked as the #3 Best Restaurant in St. George by Trip Advisor, it seems most people would agree. Owners Angelica and Jack Lancaster, along with Angelica’s mother Laura Escoto, have spent countless hours perfecting recipes based off of the traditional tastes they loved from their time spent growing up in Mexico. Their hardwork and dedication has clearly paid off by show of their nearly 5 Star ratings on Trip Advisor, Yelp and Google reviews, as well as by their loyal following of customers who come to dine at Angelica’s from near and far, often multiple times a week!

The staff at Angelica’s are friendly and welcoming, and can help you decide what to order when you can’t make up your mind on what sounds best, because it ALL sounds best. You place your order at the front counter, then seat yourself. They have plenty of indoor seating, as well as a shaded outdoor patio. Menu items are ordered A la Carte, and include tacos, burritos, carne asada platters, and quesadillas. Choose from Carne Asada, Carnitas, Machaca, Pollo Asado, Chile Verde, and Sweet Carnitas, or go vegetarian with grilled veggies and cheese. My go-to meat of choice is the Machaca. It’s always perfectly seasoned and seared quickly on the flattop, bringing out all the delicious authentic flavors. One of my favorite things about Angelica’s is their beans and rice. The pinto beans are served whole, and are hearty and packed with flavor; the rice light, fluffy, and perfectly spiced. Add your own toppings at their salsa bar, where they have several choices of fresh, homemade salsa, shredded cabbage, and chopped onions and cilantro.

If any day calls for tacos more than another, it would Monday’s. Whoever invented Taco Tuesday must have never had to transition from week-end to work-week, but Angelica’s gets it. Few things in this world can get you over a case of the Monday’s like their street tacos can, so do yourself a favor and stop in next time a Monday rolls around, or try another one of their daily specials!
