Authentic Mexican Cuisine

The food at Taxco is authentic Mexican cuisine like you can find easily in a big city like Chicago, but seldom find in rural areas where ethnic restaurants tend to be very Americanized. This restaurant has grown over the years due to its popularity and now has banquet accommodations. The food... read more

Great food a family business. Known for their margaritas so make sure to try one. Great place to sit and enjoy dinner with a group of friends or just a dinner for two. Jesus the owners mother makes flour tortillas at the window in the evening. Great people who run this location. The business has a large Cinco De Mayo... More

Jesus gives such personal attention to his customers, it is hard to ever come away from the restaurant with a bad experience. It is by far the most authentic Mexican food restaurant I have eaten at. If margaritas are your thing you'll have a wonderful time trying to pick a tequila from the 150 choices! It is also a great... More

Authentic Mexican food in a large family restaurant. This place has been located at the same location for a very long time. Always a large selection. Every dish we have ever tried is always top shelf. Not expensive either.

I always enjoy my time at Taxco, but the Steak Chilequiles are fab! I also enjoyed a paloma. My husband raved about his combination plate. Yum, yum, yum. And good prices, too.

This is by far my favorite restaurant in Sycamore! You can't beat their seasoned pork tacos or a lime margarita. We live here, so any special occasion, family event, or just when we feel like going out, Taxco is our first choice. Don't go on Mondays, they aren't open. My faves are the fajitas, chimichangas, or tacos al pastor (pork).

Hubby and I went for our anniversary, but we'll definitely be back with the kids. Great food and a nice family friendly atmosphere. The Bistec Oaxaca was so good I'll have a hard time ordering anything else.

To I D SYCAMORE. REALLY? If you grew up in the Chicago area and are familiar with "authentic" mexican restaurants, then you would also know that they usually only serve Menudo and Pazole on Sundays. I've a there whole red snapper and it was AUTHENTIC! and the best I've ever had.

My wife and I love Mexican food and love Mexico but we often find ourselves visiting Taxco after a trip to Mexico because we so enjoy their food. Jesus Romero (owner) has been a wonderful addition to our little community ever since he arrived so many years ago. The food is great. He has created a nice atmosphere with local... More
