Delicious. 'Nuff said.

This is our favorite Fox Valley restaurant, hands down. The only negative I can think of is the tables tend to be a little close for my liking, so let me get that out of the way first. Everything else is just fabulous, and we've had just about everything on the menu so we are authorities. The... read more

You don't have to go into the city to visit one of the best Mexican restaurants in the Chicagoland area. The quality and presentation of the Mexican cuisine at Bien Trucha make it a "must visit" if you are in the Fox Valley area. The challenge is getting in - with its small size it's necessary to get there when... More

Two different friends recommended this place and they did not steer us wrong. There are two separate dining areas play an outdoor area for warmer weather. We went for lunch and are tempted to go back for dinner! The homemade chips and dip were extremely tasty. The steak tacos were absolutely the best I have every had and the rice... More

Yummy & unique - 'Nuf said! Their restaurant week selection was great, allowing us to sample their fare for our first visit here. Will be back . . .

This is no cheese heavy starch rich affair, more Mexican with style and a leaning to tapas. The dishes are bite size and it's well worth experimenting with 2-3 rather than going all in on one big main. The beer and cocktail list is great and in the summer there's outdoor seating.

Excellent food and service. Love their outside seating, been there in he summer and then also this month (inside of course). Steak tacos are the best. They have seasonal fruit added into their guacamole which is great.

As another reviewer stated tables are close together in this busy high energy restaurant. Our party if three was seated at a table made for two. Food was good and well presented. Staff was attentive. We had guacamole for appetizer, then shared a shrimp quesadilla, I ordered the chicken tacos while my husband and adult daughter shared a chicken torta... More

Dined for lunch during the holidays. It was very busy when we arrived, so instead of waiting for a table, we decided to eat at the bar. There were hooks underneath the bar to place your purse and/or coat, which was a very nice design idea. The complementary bean dip and chips were delicious, as was the traditional guacamole. It...

We had 5 in our party, and everyone enjoyed the food. We were able to get a table without a reservation because we arrived shortly after they opened at 5PM on a Tuesday evening but had to wait in the cold for a bit. Service is exceptional. The wait staff is patient and very willing to offer advice.
