We arrived at 2pm on a Tuesday, and were one of two couples in the restaurant (read, they were not busy at all).

Good taste & service, average price. The atmosphere is fine, the tacos are average. We liked the combinations. They're not too filling and they give you a variety

For dinner or lunch, Tacos El Norte is always a great choice. I love their food, and it's always a good time. We go for dinner with friends and family - or for lunch with people from work, as they are also quick. It's just great.

The food was good. Just the way I liked it. I saw people come just for a little meal and others for large dinners

Not bad, the quality has dropped since they first opened - Gurnee is slightly better

Overall it satisfied my craving for Mexican food but I've definitely had better while traveling in the United States. The food was very heavy and seemed to not be prepared generally with the freshest... More
