    They're not as good as Big Star in Wicker Park.

    The best quick Mexican meal in the MagMile area. The chicken pozole is recommended. For those in your family who don't care for Mexican, there is a Jimmy John's next door.

    The steak and chicken tacos are both delicious. They're one of my favorite places for tacos!

    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.

    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

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

    The chicken burrito was so bland that I had to leave a tip. hot sauce couldn't even rescue it.

    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.

    Still trying to find Arachera like in Mexico, this is not the one. The search continues.

    Try the pork tamales.... They are A-MAZ-ING!!!!

    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!

    I like the burrito and quesadillas here. Pretty good.

    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.

    Mini burritos are really great! Mix up your choices between 3! All tasty!

    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

    Best al pastor tacos I've ever had. Chicken pozole verde is great too—perfect for a rainy day

    Love how I bought $45 worth of food and the waitress counts how many cokes we took like we were going to steal a can of coke

    Delicious margaritas!

    Jada Bean · September 9, 2012

    Wasn't impressed...chipotle and quoba are better

    Shamone Jefferson · July 21, 2012
  • Beck-Beck

    Shrimp Tacos are good...but make sure to ask for sour cream or guac because they are hella dry

    Beck-Beck · July 21, 2012

    I don't like Mexican food and I love Flaco's. Give em a shot - you won't be disappointed.

    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.

    The food is good but the service sucks.

    Get the chicken pozole verde. It's great.

    Frank Lizzadro · January 30, 2012

    I guess it's crime to ask for a explanation of the menu. I received dirty looks.

    The chihuahua cheese quesadilla is perfect after a night of drinking at Streeters.

    Get steak!! Best out here!!

    Quenton Henderson · October 2, 2011
  • Danny H.

    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.

    Great chicken pozole verde!

    Jennie Thai · September 16, 2011
