they tell you that they use skirt steak when you buy steak taco or burrito and is not true they lie and the meat is so dry they chop it so fine,it look like ground beef that is not good and the agua the horchata is bad is like you are drinking a glass of milk

Great place to eat the hip Logan Square neighborhood. Authentic Mexican food, and margaritas. They have take out as well. Fast service in a vibrant casual setting, and its easy to get to with public transportation CTA blue line Californiana exit. Must try

My brother took me here for breakfast and it was all I could hope for. Good prices, tasty food, and a nice atmosphere (as Taquerias go). The chips were fresh and the salsa was the right amount of spice. I had the Machaca Nortena (eggs with dried beef) and it was very yummy. I had more than enough left over... More

My brother lives close to this restaurant, and I am so glad he found this local gem. It has amazing food, and great service. I ordered the chicken mole, and it was perfect. We also ordered a pitcher of margaritas, and it was almost overflowing. If you are in the area, do not be fooled by the exterior, which is... More

Good authentic Mexican food. The prices are more expensive than other restaurants in the area which concern me. But overall good food.

Best mexican food I've ever had!! Fresh, tasty and so good! The location is very cozy and clean and the waiters are super friendly. I was served not only some great nachos with a fresh salsa but also some carrots ina vinergard sauce that I really appreciated. I had fish tacos and they were amazing. I totally recommend this place!

I have traveled throughout Mexico eating tacos from market stalls and street stands but can't get authentic Mexican food at home. Therefore, one of my goals while in Chicago was to eat tacos al pastor. I happened to be wandering by this place and was happy to find that it served authentic tacos. The amount of meat in each taco... More

Been eating here for years. Very consistent family operation. Fantastic carnitas and very good most anything you'd like or want. Can't go wrong here, and you might love it.
