What Makes the Southwest Cuisine at Old Town Mexican Café Stand Out?

July 12, 2017 5:15 am Published by Leave your thoughts

Southwestern cuisine is inspired by different foods and flavors from both Mexico and the American Southwest. It’s packed full of authentic flavors, tantalizing spices and fresh ingredients. Over the years, Spanish and Anglo cultures have blended together to create the mouth-watering dishes that stand out as Southwestern cuisine. While you can get Southwest cuisine at many different Mexican restaurants in Key West, FL, nothing compares to the delectable dishes found at Old Town Mexican Café. Our award-winning fresh take on Mexican cuisine brings these delicious and authentic flavors to residents and visitors to Key West every day.

Still not sure whether you want to give us a try? Here are four things that make the Southwest cuisine at Old Town Mexican Café stand out.

Fresh and local ingredients

Nothing can ruin a meal more quickly than taking a bite of your entrée to find it’s just been microwaved from frozen. You’ll never suffer from that unfortunate fate at Old Town Mexican Café. We use only the freshest ingredients for our seafood, chicken, beef and vegetarian dishes. Many of the flavors found in our tacos and burritos are local to the area—including our house-roasted chilies. This means everything is fresh and delicious with every single bite.

An award-winning chef

Award-winning chef Gail Brockway is at the helm of Old Town Mexican Café. Chef Gail has been a prominent chef in Key West, FL since 1973. Over the past four decades, she’s launched five successful restaurants in a variety of cuisine styles. She fell in love with the complexity and variety of southwestern cuisines after a sabbatical in Santa Fe. Chef Gail has now brought the authentic flavors from her experience back to Key West for everyone to experience!


Old Town Mexican Café isn’t just a regular Mexican restaurant, but a New Mexican restaurant. Heavy sauces and an overwhelming amount of cheese are replaced with fresh hatch chilies, spices and only the best ingredients. We offer an extensive menu that includes healthy options, vegetarian plates and seafood dishes that you won’t find at our competitors. Don’t worry, we still have the tacos, burritos and tostadas you know and love, as well.
