Finally, an authentic and GOOD Mexican restaurant and located in our little community. The owner, a Spanish woman named Lupe, has a little gem in this restaurant.

Having spent some time in Mexico, and lived in California, it was easy to get spoiled by the easy availability of really good Mexican food. Having moved back to Florida, I've been searching for that perfect and *authentic* place that served real Mexican fare. Dahlia's hit the nail square on the head.

To be sure, there are some Americanized dishes there too. You'll find burritos (an American invention), fajitas, hard-shell corn-tortilla tacos and such (also American). However, their menu is packed with food that is the "real deal." Genuine soft-shell tacos, with carne asada, carnitas and al pastor. Poblanos, moles and more. And, the flavor is awesome!

I had the Pick 3 Taco plate, which and chose 1 each of carne asada, carnitas and al pastor. The tacos are served simply (and correctly) with just a smattering of onion, cilantro, queso blanco (hard, white cheese) and... Well that's it. Real Mexican tacos are simple creations. The meats used however, are very flavorful, marinated and grilled to perfection! The carnitas was music to my palate and the al pastor taco was absolutely heavenly, with gentle notes of pineapple, just as the Almighty intended. :-)

My mother had 3 chicken tacos and likewise, the chicken was seasoned well, shredded and served simply. Each dish came with a side of refried beans with just a dash of queso blanco. Again, just fantastic. Neither of us chose to add anything to enhance the meal. The food was not spicy-hot, but had excellent flavor. Adding to it would have taken something away.

To drink, mom had the "Corazon" margarita, a sweet raspberry-base with a salted rim. She loved it, though I found it too sweet for my personal taste. I tried--and loved-- the Horchata Borracha, which was a nice twist on a typical Mexican horchata (a rice-based drink) with a shot of some very nice rum.

I can't extol how wonderful this place is. I'm definitely a fan and will be back again for sure. If you are visiting this area and looking for a genuine Mexican-style lunch or dinner, Dahlia's is a must.
