I'd recommend Aguamiel for any occasion, it's THAT flexible to fit your purposes. They offer a three taco sampler that's great and their sauces are tasty. Call head for reservations as it gets crowded on weekends but it's worth the wait.

This restaurant is another "sister" restaurant to a small family "chain" so-to-speak. Great family, delicious-varied menus. Easy, street parking in a historic, quaint little town with a convenient Metra rail stop. Why they need to "stretch" their food with peas is puzzling. Ingredients as inexpensive as rice need not be "stretched" with peas. My first experience with their pea extender... More

Excellent food and even better margaritas! This is always on our list of restaurants when trying to decide where to eat, and often we end up here even though we keep saying we will try something new. The space is clean, though can be a little tight. The employees have always been very nice and helpful even when busy. We... More

Best Mexican cuisine I have ever had. Wife agrees. Live in south suburbs. Drive 45 minutes to get here. We plan on coming back again and again.

We made a last minute decision to try this recent addition to Clarendon Hills and were hugely surprised and pleased. The town has a history of restaurant failures and I hope that doesn't happen here. Given the food quality, ambiance and service...we hope not. We started with typical margaritas. They were excellent though we skipped the agave nectar since we... More

Great decor, energetic ambiance, fair service. Apps: jalapeno rellenos - spicy, tangy and delicious Tamales - decent but forgettable. Guacamole - standard Entree: Taco, pick 3 - I chose baja fish taco (which was excellent), carne asada (which was good) and braised pork belly (which was disappointing) Margarita - the Cadillac is much more on par with a standard margarita....

chef trained with Rick Bayless at Fronteria. Food is fresh and with authentic taste. nice fish and beaautiful soup. no where else in western suburbs can you get chilli rellano, sopes and authentic tortilla soup. now onto margaritas made with lime juice, not that ucky sour mix. It has become a quick favorite

Not only is the food over priced but it is not very good. We have eaten here three times hoping it will be better. The food is rather bland and the atmosphere is not very friendly. Too bad. We were so disappointed.

I sent this e-mail to the restaurant, and never got a response, which matches their service. I was part of a birthday party for 6 at your restaurant last night….4 of the 6 people were returning diners to your restaurant. To say the least, the dining experience was NOT pleasant at all from a number of perspectives: The restaurant was... More

I visited here with friends who wanted to try Aguamiel because of their love for its sister restaurant in Wheaton. Frankly we were really surprised by just how bad the service was. Our server disappeared for very long periods of time, and we eventually had to go to the hostess stand to get some attention. It went downhill from there,... More
