Good food fair price.

I enjoy the torpedo burrito, but the taco meal has become a weekly favorite. We call and pick up usually on less than 20 minutes.

Excellent food, wonderful service, Very good value. We come here often and over several years. Can be very busy but well worth the wait.

I love this place. It's so hard to find a decent Mexican place in the burbs - I've been searching for the last 12 years! Hands down the best I've found to date. We've ordered take out and dined in their restaurant. Quality and portions are pretty comparable. Their dine-in is surprisingly quite large and always busy. Service is quick.... More

Last evening I went to Taco El Norte with my daughter, son-in-law, and two Grandchildren age 20 and 16.. Other than one duplicate meal, everyone had something different. We were seated immediately, and our server promptly took our drink order, and brought us 2 servings of Chips, salsa, and avacato dips, to munch on while we studied our menu's. I... More

Whenever I travel to Lake Zurich, I make a stop here. It's in the corner of a little strip mall right next to the Holiday Inn. Had someone not told me about it, I would've missed it. Yummy Mexican food and reasonably priced. Chips and guacamole are delicious!!

We grab their tacos for takeout. Great staff, yummy tacos, at the right price. Deceptively small from the outside, a lot of seating on the inside.

I visit the area a couple times a year, and always get take out from Tacos El Norte. Sometimes we order take out for family gatherings, and everyone gets their favorite meals. They will spice things up or down, as requested, adjust ingredients as well. LOVE their guacamole! Reasonable prices and great, hard working staff. There are several good Mexican... More
