Hubby and I usually cook at home, but sometimes we go out for a change of scenery. Some restaurant meals are just not worth it. But our meal at Huaraches was wonderful! I loved the crispy corn chips. I had the supreme tacos and everything was very fresh and tasty. Even the sour cream was creamier than what I've had... More

The rating doesn't match the title, right? Well, I'd rate it higher, because it really is the best Mexican food you can get in the Champaign/Urbana area. However, that doesn't make it a great Mexican joint. The food is authentic, but it's kind of hit or miss when you order something if it will be made as good as the... More

We eat here about once a month and always have a great meal. It is small and looks like a dive - but the food is great. It's so much better than all of the generic Torros restaurants in CU.

The food here is great! Smoked pork is amazing! The margaritas are excellent! They have a few items that are gluten free too! Only complaint is that they have no air conditioning so we usually sit outside.

To be honest, this place was my fallback. After finding my first choice was closed, I read the reviews. My takeaways are consistent with what I read before trying this dive...and I have a healthy respect for dives. The food was good, abundant, and served promptly. The service was complete, honest, attentive, and friendly without being cloying. I will be... More

This place is a hidden gem in the community, It is away from other places and could be difficult to locate the first time. The best directions would be the corner of Cottage Grove/Washington/ Urbandale. The restaurant is small with limited seating. 50 diners will fill the dining room. The place is clean, well decorated and cozy. When seated you... More
