The food is very good. Full range of authentic Mexican food. I have ordered the chicken burrito, Fish tacos, Shrimp tacos, and steak sandwich on various visits. All are exceptional. I prefer the burritos. The chips and salsa are home made and delicious as is the guacamole. You can order for take out or sit in the dining room. When... More

Best Mexican in the area! We've been there multiple times to eat in or take it to go. The staff is super friendly. The food is quick and delicious. The restaurant and bathroom aren't much to write home about, but the food and margaritas make up for it! Quality food, decent prices, quick and friendly service!

The Taco's El Norte in Round Lake Beach is a wonderful place for authentic Mexican food. Very reasonably priced. Basic Mexican fare, but very well done and consistent. Note that there are other Taco's El Norte in the Chicago land area, but they are not all the same. They must be run by entirely different owners, as they all have... More

Food was good, service was not. Ordered shrimp tacos which were probably the best I have ever had. Sadly it took a good 10 minutes for waitress to acknowledge us and then it took a long time for our food to arrive. We never saw the waitress after she brought our food, never got the bill and had to ask... More

If you want authentic Mexican food this is the place to come. Their Beef Caldo and Chicken Enchiladas are to die for. All their food is made fresh. Some places cook their meat in the morning and then reheat it during the day. Not this place. They cook all the meats for each order, by the order. . The flavors... More

Tacos El Norte is much better than the other Mexican restaurants in the area. It serves traditional Mexican fare that has a little flavor and some spiciness, which is very different than the other bland tasting offerings around here. The service is not the greatest, but the staff is very friendly and they are also welcoming to all customers.

This is the best Mexican food I've ever had, and and I've been to numerous restaurants. The staff is attentive, the food is fast, and amazing. I probably come here once a month.. Get the steak tacos :)
