Anna Maria Island - Did you know the most authentic Mexican food in town can be found on the sandy beaches of Anna Maria Island? Yes! Poppo’s Taqueria, located at 212C Pine Ave. Anna Maria, has been winning hearts since late 2012 with an attention to detail rarely found in the food industry. Owned and operated by two brothers and one significant other Poppo’s has a belief in flavor and sustainability over all. With careful sourcing they have put together a menu of meats free of antibiotics, added hormones, growth stimulants, and preservatives all humanely handled on vegetarian diets. Procuring most of their produce from Global Organics, only the best ingredients are chosen, from each organic roma tomato to every avocado that goes into their delicious guacamole. As if this were not enough each soda, fountain or bottle is made with real cane sugar, natural herbs and spices. Having said all of that is it really any better that your neighborhood taco truck serving meat, beans and veggies? Absolutely! The idea that better ingredients make better food has taken off so aggressively that they have now opened a second location off Anna Maria Island in Bradenton located at 6777 Manatee Ave. West. So next time you find yourself vacationing on Anna Maria or just having a day at the beach there’s no better place to fill up than Poppo’s Taqueria.
