This is one of our regular favorites. I love the chicken burritos. Their guacamole is delicious, too. Always busy on weekends but you can enjoy a tasty margarita while you wait.

Enjoyed our meal here but dinner for 2 was over $60 which is just too high for Mexican. Good service, food was good. During the warm months you can sit outside. Would go back but just for a drink and an appetizer.

That Little Mexican Cafe is a favorite pre-flight dinner restaurant during the week, just a couple of blocks from the Davis Street El station and the Purple Line Express that takes you to the O'Hare Blue Line or Midway Orange Line. Freshly prepared guacamole is a must as an appetizer (admittedly, they're not the first - Adobo Grill may hold that honor in the Chicago area), remember to save some for your enchiladas, etc. My favorite is the tamales, one of the few Mexican restaurants to still feature them (order one pork, one chicken if you can!). Their margaritas are great, not too strong but not watery, either.

Fun and tasty Mexican restaurant in Evanston, Illinois. Good lunch or dinner location. Close to major Evanston multi-plex cinema, so good choice - pre/post movies. Great Guacamole - they create to your specifications. Extensive menu, very good desserts. Recommended in a town full of restaurants.

Start with the ceviche - crisp bright flavors. Then order the sea scallops - ours were cooked perfectly and seasoned just right - not over powered, just full flavored and the tropical salad changed my opinion on papaya - delish! I was a little jealous I wasn't a kid - the table next door had a visit from the balloon man - who made the cutest animals of balloon bubbles I've seen in years. Good for the family and good for adults. Visit the bar to watch your favorite game.
