Philadelphia is the king of Mexican restaurants in Pennsylvania
Philadelphia is home to the most Mexican restaurants in Pennsylvania, per the Pew Research Center's analysis of data from SafeGraph.
Why it matters: The proliferation of restaurants highlights the growing influence of Mexican Americans on U.S. culture and the effects of increased migration from Mexico.
By the numbers: Pennsylvania has nearly 1,100 Mexican restaurants, per Pew.
- Philly has the most at 212, followed by Allegheny County at 154 and Montgomery County with 121.
Yes, but: Montgomery County can claim the crown for the highest concentration of Mexican restaurants, with 1.4 per 10,000 residents.
