We ate lunch al fresco on a gorgeous Wednesday afternoon. The guacamole was scrumptious and the tacos (pollo, de barriga and pescado) and caz camorones were delicious. Service was friendly and the wait staff is knowledgeable about all the dishes. They will be opening up a branch in Glen Ellyn in September and we can't wait!

This place often has a line, but it is worth the wait! I love the guacamole of the day with fruit, it's very delicious and something you don't get at other places. The fish tacos with cabbage are a must have with a side of the corn and rice. They also have great fruity cocktails. Fun with friends or for... More

Carne and fish tacos are must haves, as are the guacamole of the day and the cheesy corn. Attentive staff, but a bit tight/cozy with seating. Worth he trip to the burbs for sure!

So lots of friends and family raved about this place and told me I had to go. I took my parents and fiancee' and off we went. The service, food, and atmosphere are outstanding. The reason I gave this 4 stars was simply the fact that a great Mexican restaurant has to have a great Margarita to have 5 stars... More

What a great experience! Relaxed, friendly atmosphere with super service, and the food is terrific. The menu has all types of Mexican food, with a variety of tastes. Portions are ample for two people to share. The bar does not make frozen margaritas, but the other drinks and beers are more than enough. The key lime ice cream was a... More

A fantastic little restaurant with a loyal following. When I asked around Geneva for a good Mexican restaurant Bein Trucha came up more than any other, and for good reason, this place offers many authentic Mexican dishes in a "share-able" size. Expect a wait, and there isn't a waiting area in the restaurant. As other reviewers have noted, they will... More

We had an excellent experience here. We were able to make a reservation on line, which they do not take many reservations in this manner. The service was wonderful and the food was fantastic. It's a very small restaurant but the atmosphere is a lot of fun. We had an appetizer of the salsa sampler. . . so delicious and... More

We have been to this restaurant several times and have enjoyed it each time. The service is good the food is good, the ambiance is good. Always crowded, they will take your cell number and suggest one of the several bars nearby

When we moved here everyone told us this was a "must visit". Since I wasn't about to line up on the sidewalk at 5PM to get in anywhere, it was a while before we got in. We ended up sitting outside on a nice night, which was fortunate since it's really claustrophobic inside. We ordered a number of items to... More
