I saw on Trip Advisor that this restaurant was highly recommended so I went there. It was not good, it was over priced and the cook put everything in the microwave. One of the worst meals I have ever eaten.

I have not found another taco place around des plaines that has barbacoa, this is the only place that cooks it to perfection. It's flavorful and super tender, amazing tacos, sopes and burritos and it's not too crazy on you wallet either. I reccomend this place

If you've got the taste for real authentic fast Mexican, this is the place. The place is a real hole in the wall, but the food is outstanding. Yum.

I've been coming to this place for years. Don't let the look of the building deter you. They make the best tacos, quesadillas and burritos around. All of the meat is very fresh and well cooked. Such a good flavor and Very authentic! You won't better food around!

Lo-rent shack / Best authentic burritos in NW suburbs. Hard to find. Worth the trip. Walk up counter service only, 4 booths and zero atmosphere, but oh those burritos! Steak, chicken, lengua, shredded barbacoa. Tacos too. Burritos incl. Cilantro, queso, beans, sour cream, salsa verde. OMG!
