The food is always good, parking kind of sucks. But I promise you the food is worth it. I always like to call in the order rather than wait in line, although you will have to wait in line anyways. I love the guacamole and chips and the green medium salsa. So far we've only tried all their... read more

This place has been renovated so it actually looks pretty nice inside. It's a great place after a night out with friends. Huge, tasty burritos and good salsa and chips. I try to go there at least once a week.

We always try to visit one of our old favorites when in town. We lived in the area for many years and this was our go to place for fast, quick, good Mexican food. We usually got food to go but there is table service as well. They've been in business for many, many years and have a lot of... More

I found this place near my old office. Their giant burrito is awesome! So much good flavor. The steak tacos, chicken enchiladas mole and so many other things are really worth going to this establishment to eat. It's a half hour drive from our home and we still go there. They are open very late, so basically - always there... More

El burrito, as the locals call it, is after the bars close food. Apparently then you don't notice grease. The high school kids love it. Me- not so much. Save the calories, unless its 2am...

Oh, El Mex, I'll never stray. Been eating in here off and on for 15 years. Burrito is great every time, tacos are tasty and their salsa is really well made too. Whenever I'm in Lisle I always try to sneak in a stop here!

El Mex, as we call it, is our go to place for take-out Mexican food. We normally get the burritos which are ginormous. I got the steak burrito the first couple of times, but was dissatisfied with the quality of the beef; it was too grizzly for my taste. I switched to the chicken burrito and am very happy with...

Great local place. It's small; about 4 booths, a few tables and the atmosphere is..shall we say ...the place has character. Good food fast.

I found this place as I went to college right down the street, how lucky my fellow students and I were! This place has authentic Mexican fare, and you get so much for your buck! It is delicious, and the fact that it is open late makes it a great pit stop for the weekends, during a finals cram session,... More
