The food here is always excellent. This location on Wells is always understandably busy! The customer service is always professional and courteous. I will continue to come here to fulfill my cravings for great Mexican food. Two suggestions: please provide napkin dispensers to the customers and please lower the blaring music a little!

I love this place. Their Chef should win an award. The most flavorful burrito you'll find in Chicago. Always hot! I have been eating here at least once a week for six years. Always delicious and always safe.

Spent all summer in Chicago struggling through true Mexican food until I found it here. Great food and service. If you want normal Mexican food prepared well this is your place. Super!

Adjacent to the Financial District - got there at 11:45am, and there wasn't a big crowd. Gave it a try, and by the time we got our food, the place was packed. Order at the counter and they bring it to you....very quickly. Food was very good - add this to the list of places to return to.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
