    Tortillas, cilantro, minced onions, limes, pico de gallo, and the best carnitas in the city. You can order the deep-fried beef brain tacos, which taste like a savory eggy custard in a fried crust. Read more

    Snake your way between the dual lines up front and snag a rickety table, where you can quickly prep tacos from the platter of meat put before you, topping them with pico de gallo and a spurt of lime. Read more

    Get the goat and the carnitas, they have both "safe" and "adventurous" meat plates. Safe means white meats, adventurous means multi body parts. Delicious.

    Best Carnitas in Chicago, not a fan of their salsas at all, but everything else is delicious!

    This Pilsen storefront traffics in arguably the best carnitas in Chicago. Buy it by the pound and ask for extra tortillas; you'll need them. Read more
