About Us

About Best Mexican Foods

In 1968, Louis and Carol Barbone decided that they would bring Mexican Food to the East Coast by opening the first taco stand in New York City – Tico Taco. They envisioned their enterprise growing to a chain of taco stands throughout the New York City area. At that time, there were only four Mexican restaurants in the entire city. The going was hard, but the Barbones persisted and gradually educated consumers about a tasty variety of Mexican food.

By 1972, there were six Mexican restaurants in New York City: Xchotil, Pancho Villa’s, Zapatas, Fonda La Paloma, Braseros and El Parador. The Barbone’s sold all of them tortillas. By then Louis and Carol had transformed an old 7000 sq. foot building into the first major tortilla manufacturing plant in the Northeast, making and delivering tortillas daily.

In 1985, they built an ultra-modern 20,000 square foot facility in Middletown, designed specifically for tortilla production, and added an additional 20,000 equare feet just two years later.

As a family owned business, Best Mexican Foods is dedicated to providing the most authentic and fresh products with prompt and direct service to a growing customer base in the Northeast.

Now 50 years later, Louis Jr and Daniel Barbone carry on the same tradition started by their parents. With a fleet of refrigerated trucks, Best Mexican Foods services the Northeast with the freshest corn and flour tortillas and a full line of Mexican grocery items, fresh meats and produce.

The Barbone family runs the oldest, and largest Mexican food distributorship in the Northeast.
