    The chicken tortilla soup is really good. Get a side of Mexican cheese for 50 cents and add some medium green salsa. Mix. Eat. Trust me.

    Carbon serves a killer carne asada taco, though the fried fish taco is also surprisingly good.

    Order a Mother Clucker burrito! It's massive and can easily be shared with a couple people.

    The fish tacos are some of my favorite. Also the burrito with elotes is the balls.

    Not the most "authentic" Mexican food in Chicago, but the tilapia burrito & elote make a good meal.

    Go with the chicken ceasar salad.. Skip their dressing and use the roasted red pepper salsa instead..

    The only reason to come is if the other 5,000 taquerias within 2 blocks of here seem "too Mexican" for you

    Don't go here. That's my tip. Bad service, rude workers, and the burrito I waited 20 min for (even though I was the only one in line) was gross.

    By far the worst Mexican food I've ever had. The chicken is absolutely vile. Extremely fatty/tendony. Leave.

    This use to be a great place.. They screwed up my order twice today.. Seriously.. Is it that hard to make a chicken ceasar salad?!? How hard is "no ceasar dressing"?!?
