Mex 1 Coastal Cantina: Like Traveling Down the West Coast Highway

A photograph of Mex 1 Coastal Cantina.

A visit to Mex 1 Coastal Cantina recreates an epic adventure off the West coast highway for which it is named: the sun, ocean breeze and salt air are captured in the fresh foods and unique flavors they serve.

Morgan Hurley, marketing and beverage director, wants guests to feel “like they are on an adventure down Baja where you surf your brains out then relax with friends and get killer fish tacos and memorable margaritas.”

Recognized for the Best Margarita, Mex 1 uses 100% blue agave tequila and fresh-squeezed juices to craft their most notable cocktail. Those looking for bolder choices will find a match in one of the delicious drinks made with Mex 1’s infused tequilas. With options ranging from pineapple, berries and serrano peppers to strawberry and cucumber, their signature cocktails are sure to awaken taste buds and invigorate senses.

Beloved among Mexican and Tex-Mex eaters in the area, Mex 1’s food is healthy, craveable, and inspired by the flavors in Southern California. Mex 1 serves locally sourced produce and celebrates the simplicity of high-quality ingredients, mixed with perfected techniques and know-how. Mex 1 house-smokes their chicken and pork and makes all salsas, sauces and dressings in house daily. Try their house-made guacamole and creamy queso as well as rice bowls, quesadillas and some of the best tacos in town. Round the meal out with one of their award-winning margaritas and you’ll feel like you’re on vacation, even if it’s a regular weekday.
