We have been going to Escobar's since they opened. The food is always good and so is the service. Wild Mushroom Enchiladas and the Andouille kabobs are always a favorite. The muffins are always a pleaser.

The restaurant is a little out of the way from downtown Champaign and the U of I campus however it has plenty of street parking and a dedicated parking lot across the street. Food is very good and imaginative.
