On a recent business trip to the Chicago area we had Bien Trucha recommended to us by a local. As there were 8 of us dining we managed to get a reservation on a Saturday evening.

A uniquely small restaurant, it's always full. But that's part of the charm. Wonderful food and drinks in a cozy atmosphere. Things as simple as chips and guac are made more interesting at Bien Trucha. Definitely worth a try, and after trying, you'll most certainly want to come back.

Bien Trucha is always busy, there is a line outside the door almost every time we drive by. However, the food is always amazing and well worth the wait! My daughter and I went for dinner last week at Bien Trucha and the food tasted incredible. We had guacamole with chips, tacos for our meal along with a corn type... More

The best restaurant ever. End of story, no discussion. These tacos taste unlike any other and the flavors are unique and totally new. Go, wait in line, and trust me there will be a line, and enjoy!

If you are a fan of Spanish cuisine, this is an absolute must-visit. Hidden behind a nondescript facade on a major road, there are two buildings. One is for lunch, and one is for dinner. I came for lunch, and it was very crowded on Saturday around 2 P.M. The lunch (and dinner, from what I could see) house was... More

During a recent sisters' weekend, the fabulous staff at the Herrington Inn recommended we walk uptown to Bien Trucha for dinner. We were told they don't take reservations. So we decided to head out right away so we could get ahead of the weekend crowd. It was a non-descript building. But once inside there was a cool vibe and lots... More

Bien Trucha remains one of our local favorites. It has a positive, upbeat atmosphere. Food is always great; flavors are unique and make our tastebuds smile. Service is quick. Drinks are right on par with the food. We have tried many other restaurants similar to this one, but they seem to miss one or more notes that Bien Trucha hits.... More

I always start out with the intention of just grabbing lunch, but always end up with a cab ride home. The food is out of this world. The flavors are so far away from what you come to expect from tacos that they are like tacos from mars-if mars were a wonderful warm place that fed you drinks and made... More
