“Best Mexican food around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2009

This restaurant doesn't look like much (except for the fun mural), but the food is awesome and the friendly service is really nice and refreshing. The pork green chili is amazing. The gorditos are wonderful and somewhat unexpected. The enchiladas suizas verdes, again with that wonderful green sauce, are amazing. We have had various meat entrees, stews and combos and never been disappointed. If you're looking for Mexican food in or near Des Plaines, head to Mexico. Only complaint is that the margaritas are too sweet. It's not a bar-restaurant; head someplace more upscale for great margaritas. At Mexico, stick to beer or soda and enjoy the amazing food.
