    Hipsters swear by this spot and they’re very serious about its perfectly seasoned steak. You can try the taco straight up with some chopped onions or throw on some creamy Chihuahua cheese. Read more

    There's a lot to like but you can't go wrong with a carne asada burrito. If you're getting a taco make sure to ask for the homemade tortilla. My favorite is the fish taco. And don't forget the salsa!

    Carne asada and fried tilapia are cooked to perfection. Vegetarian burrito fillings vary daily, everything from sweet potatoes to garlic roasted corn, in addition to a poblano rajas option. Read more

    Tacos al pastor (along with the other three kinds we tried) were excellent! The food is inexpensive and high quality and the staff was super friendly and attentive. Definitely returning here

    Shrimp taco was good, chicken tacos were a little on the dry side, but the salsa was flavorful enough to make up for it. Not the best I’ve ever had but definitely worth trying & good for the price.

    All the tacos are amazing. Best steak tacos I've ever had. Big juicy chunks of steak. Tried lengua for the first time and loved it. The tacos al pastor are fucking killer. These tacos are juicy.

    Red salsa is much spicier 🌶️ than green salsa. Both delicious 😋 Cash only. Big bag of chips that came with guac could have fed a family of four

    Best tacos I have ever had in the city, bar none. Great vegetarian options. Horchata is to die for. Guacamole is on point. Order everything. You'll hurt, but it'll be worth it.

    The steak is something to tell your friends about and the affordable prices. Plus they serve elotes! Everyone I took there <3d it and I'm sure you will too! Worth every penny and the line was not bad

    This taco spot is run by a guy who used to work at Frontera Grill. They do a few tortas and burritos, but their tacos are super solid. The fish tacos are easily the best in town. Read more

    Greasy, unhealthy Mexican food. But they were really accommodating by making sure my burrito was dairy free! My vegan pepper burrito was so yummy! Super casual

    The carne asada is extra beefy but surprisingly greaseless. It stands out as something of an instant classic, and a serious contender for best in the city.

    Go for the shrimp tacos. Lightly beer battered with roasted Serrano and creamy slaw. The gringo is also amazing..carne Asada on homemade tortillas.

    Elote is a must! Guacamole so so good. Never had a bad dish. Be prepared to wait in line - we had to wait about 30 minutes total time.

    Most of the tacos are really solid and more authentic in style. Well packed with meat, 3 was the perfect amount - oh and cash only!

    The burritos have fresh lettuce, tomatoes, and large cuts of steak. This is almost unheard of for a $5.50 burrito and taquerias in Chicago.

    Order the Poblano Rajas taco! Super savory, thought it was better than the fish taco and Al Pastor taco.

    Cash only. Pescado & Pastor tacos were really yummy, & so was the guacamole. Will definitely be back for more!

    Fish Tacos were ok, the other tacos not so great ( al pastor, pollo). Carne adada was pretty decent. I don't think of this place as the most authentic, but when you're hungry everything is good.

    Everything. But burritos are the bomb. Try half al pastor half chorizo.

    I agree with Chad B. the fish tacos are great. If you're feeling a burrito try the chorizo, it will not disappoint.

    Decent neighborhood spot, but not worthy of the rave reviews here. girls upfront are very nice, but flavors are nothing special and meat often over done. Guac is good.
