Good food no complaints. Limited menu but I understand why. Staff was nice place needs updating. Parking was easy. When I say quick I mean really quick.

Heard rave reviews over the years and finally got within driving distance...maybe this place was great in the past but $9.50 for a steak,onion,cilantro burrito that would give a cow a run for its money's on chewing the cud was ridiculous. The taste was there but the meat was second rate...I'm quite sure the burrito supreme for $12.50 was not... More

We stopped 2 nights in a row for dinner on our way out of Chgo. Always delicious, authentic Mexican food. We ordered a steak burrito & a steamed beef burrito, both with cilantro & cheese. Makes my mouth water thinking of the awesome flavors. Two burritos & two sodas for under $20. Can't wait to stop here again!

So, I'm still confused about why they have 2-3 locations next door to each other, and why one only sells tacos and the other only sells tortas... But here goes. Whichever one sells tortas is AMAZING. It's the best torta in the whole city, hands down. You might get an attitude if you walk into one and ask for a... More

Overall, the staff is always nice and works quickly even when they're slammed, the price is comparable to places in the area and the value for money is quite good. I've been addicted to their super burritos at least since 2011. The only thing I have to say is that in the past year or 2 I've noticed a bit... More

This is my bf's favorite restaurant, so I had to give it a try the first time I visited Chicago. (He's a local.) The menu has tacos, burritos, tortas, plates, etc., but I didn't see any seafood. I guess there probably wouldn't be any fresh seafood, as Chicago is landlocked and not by the ocean. :P I didn't know what... More

I came here for some late night tacos with friends. Definitely try the "lengua", or beef tongue tacos. They were amazing! I also had the poblano pepper taco which was a lightly breaded poblano pepper stuffed with cheese. Can you get any better than that?!? I would agree that you don't go to this place for the ambiance but the... More

Seriously, this is a late night place. If you are starving and want good tacos...this is where you need to stop before heading home. I only eat one kind of taco....the beef tongue....it's fricking amazing. Doesnt sound so appealing...but I'd say, give it a try...you might like it!

Easily the best burrito I've ever had. La Pasadita is a local institution. It's a total dive and very simple, but ultimately safe and well worth it. They are open late making them a great eat for after a night of going out. If you are looking for authentic food that has been enjoyed by the locals for years, this... More
