About Us

As you walk into our restaurant, we want to transport you to Mexico with smell of traditional braises and chilies in the air.

Our guiding principle MX Taco has set out to provide the authentic flavors of Mexican Cuisine to our guests. We believe that when you handle fresh ingredients in the right manner the clean and oftentimes-healthy dishes of Mexico do not require excesses in spices and ingredients. Our goal is to take you on a journey through the states of Mexico with every bite you take!

MX Taco is a fast-casual restaurant featuring fresh tacos, traditional soups and street corn in the style of a traditional Mexican kitchen.

The roots of MX Taco began many years ago in the kitchens of Mexico when Chef Ryan Manning’s passion for the culture and cuisine of the country took him south of the border where he worked alongside some great chefs and discovering some of the most unique dishes from towns, cities and states across the culturally rich nation.

Upon returning to the United States via Washington D.C. he began to build upon the idea of sharing this historically rich culture with the American palate through a partnership with the Mexican Cultural Institute – Mexican Embassy to the United States.

Ultimately though Chef Manning wanted to return Orlando, the city that had become his home; where he built a solid foundation of his culinary career in the heart of some of the largest hotel companies including Disney and The Ritz-Carlton.

Our goal is to take you on a journey through the states of Mexico with every bite you take!
