The refried beans are very good the rice is okay. I really liked the sopes. Something I dont normally like that much so the fact i liked it stood out to me. Other than the horchata nothing stood out as mind blowing but I liked everything. The place is nothing special looking but I like the plants and vines it... More

I started eating here in the mid 1990's but since moved away. When I return to visit family, I make it a point to return for my favorite: a baby potato burrito (not small at all/they also have giant). My family and friends have tried all sorts of items from their extensive menu and everything is outstanding. It is a... More

My kids and I like to go through the drive through for fresh burritos and soup. Fast and fresh! Not fancy, but delicious!

Healthy portions, a authentic taste. Some of the best food anywhere. Try the soup, It's out of this world.

Popped in here after a trip to the close by Chicago Premium Outlet Mall. Very friendly service and I had a tasty steak/chicken fajita. I would not make a special trip to this restaurant but if your hungry and close by its worth trying.

Love the food and personnel. Only thing I would change is for the kitchen to squeeze the juice from taco meat so the tortillas are not so hard to handle. Juice goes everywhere and easy on shirt when you bite on the taco. Other than that. Ohh yes yummy yummy!!

If you want authentic Mexican food in Aurora, this is the place to go! The food is absolutely delicious. Free chips (though you have to ask for them at times). I love the chicken enchilada or tamales--and I always get the dinner. I treat myself to dinner here at least once a month. Cashiers when I have been there are... More

Sorry Raymonds/Taqueria Durango . . . after all these years, I'm gonna have to give up the grease and go for the good stuff. The burritos are just as big with a fraction of the grease, and if I'm gonna pay $8 for a burrito, at least this one comes with rice and beans. It's good stuff, and the kids... More
