The tacos here are great, as well as the drinks. The cheese and shrimp dish is to die for. Very well done. Will be back.

The food here is fantastic. They make most of the drinks in house with fresh ingredients. No reservations so you have to wait a bit. They now have an outside so the wait is shorter in the warm weather. Pricey but worth it. The best, most authentic Mexican around.

I went here for lunch on a Friday with some girlfriends and had a great time. We had about a 20 minute wait, as the restaurant is rather small and a bit cramped. BUT, the small space was worth it for the amazing food! We had fresh guacamole, fish tacos, and the corn. I never thought I would say that... More

My wife and I went here for dinner and it was probably the best mexican I've ever had. The meat was tender. The drinks were made fresh and they were absolutely delicious. This could be one of the best restraunts in geneva

The food is at the top of its class here. I met a friend for lunch on a Wednesday. It was extremely crowded and very loud so not the best time for trying to catch up with my friend. If the music was turned down a bit it could have prevented the almost shouting level of speaking needed to hear... More

I have tried to eat here on three different occasions and decided not to play the waiting game. Well, number four was last Saturday night. It was a snowy, cold and grey. We recieved our text that we had fifteen minutes to arrive as we were pulling up after a half hour drive to the restaraunt. We were greeted at... More

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. The restaurant was absolutely packed and there was a great atmosphere. With such a large party we just ordered loads of tacos and shared.... More

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.
