After having come here once a week for 18 years we have missed TEN since hitting the road 2 years ago to travel full time. When home visiting recently we were shocked to see the new expansion, and love it. But we know this place VERY well and it seems to us that the portion sizes seem to be reduced... More

Food was very good and ready in 10 minutes for pick-up. We had the tacos and fajitas. While we chose to take our meal back to the hotel, the restaurant had a dining area that was packed on a Tuesday night.

You cannot go wrong with Tacos el Norte in Lake Zurich!! The atmosphere is family, the location is in a small strip mall - so very underwhelming. But, when you get inside, you feel like family! The food is authentic Mexican thru and thru! And they remember you when you come again! Never a bad meal there! They also know... More

The atmosphere leaves something to be desired, but the food is good and the prices are reasonable. On the weekends they have mariachis going from table to table. Good margaritas also.

Great food, friendly staff and reasonably priced. We have only been there for dinner, and the restaurant is ALWAYS busy by 6 p.m.

Wouldn't go anywhere else for true mexican food. Best ever guacamole and flan. We are weekly regulars for take-out, sometimes twice a week.

Tacos El Norte had the best Burritos and Chimichangas I have had anywhere. The portion was huge and my husband and I could have shared one entree and be full! The Service was great and fast. When we pulled up to the location the parking lot was full but judging from the outside we didn't realize how much space the... More

I was recently had a friends birthday party at their home and the food they served was all delivered by Tacos El Norte. All of the food was excellent. This is one of the better Mexican restaurants in this area.

This is one of our favorite, "go to" places in Lake Zurich. We can rely on fast, friendly service, and you can't beat how fresh the food is. The guacamole is the best we've had, anywhere!

Prices are great, service is perfect, decor is charming, and, best of all, the food is consistently good. My family goes at least a couple times a month for a quick meal because we know that we are going to be happy that we went!
