    Tacos! Or course. They also have margaritas and vegan desserts. I absolutely love Flaco's tacos, they have great food and it's pretty cheap too! Right off the Chicago red line stop

    The taco specials are on point. I'm having the Ancho chicken one right now that is super good, and I had a barbacoa one a few weeks ago that I may have legit cried about

    Be on the lookout for their tacos of the week. Also, if you are a regular, sign up for their Flacos Fanaticos loyalty program and get $10 for every 100 points.

    Vegetable flaco bowl was incredible. The food was inexpensive, delicious and dare I say better than the likes of Moe's, Chipotle, and Qdoba.

    There is a chiropractor and massage therapist that work down stairs so be mindful when you move chairs and tables around. I can be seriously noisy downstairs.

    I've eaten here several times recently and the steak seems to be dry both here and the Printer's Row location. The chicken is fine though. Sad to see the quesadillas don't come with vegetables.

    Service has good down hill recently. Waited a long time for a to go order. Remember you can't call it "steak quesadillas" if there's barely any steak in it!

    A little expensive (similar to Chipotle), but definitely something to check out! Mmm... Cream cheese in burritos...

    Rude and horrible customer service. Didn't get order right. When we asked regarding ingredients, they threw a menu at us. Glad I never come to this spot. Won't ever return.

    The food here has gotten significantly worse. The steak was dry, the pastor was tasteless and the tamale was burnt. The lemonade was the only upside to this experience.
