This is a crowd favorite, as our readers picked Los Hermanos as their favorite traditional Mexican restaurant for the 2017 Best of Utah Valley. And by looking at their lengthy menu, it’s no surprise. (P.S. This downtown Provo restaurant has a brother location in Lindon, so there is no excuse if you don’t want to brave the downtown dinner rush traffic.)
