Went to try the new place in town.... Had the guacamole, was almost like they bought it pre made... no chunks, no clintro, no flavor. Had the combo because I wanted to see how they made different things, Everything tasted the same... Pepper was rubbery, as was the enchilada, the taco was not even full size, it was mini taco with a few pieces of beef. Cute inside, but it is nothing special as far as there food.Friends had tried the burrito,and said it was good... might try that once more.

we are big fans of Mexican food, and don't settle for poor taste or quality. luckily, we don't have to do either with Los Mogotes. The guacamole (a great caliber for the rest of a restaurant's food) is great, and all their food has good portion sizes, fair price, and great flavor. seems like a family place, which we like, and the girls at the counter are super-nice. i love that the cooks wear uniforms; it makes it seem like they take their job seriously. the restaurant we used to go to in Grayslake for Mexican started to have issues with consistency of quality and was always out of milanesa or pastor. it was so annoying, and we gave them so many chances (had been going there for 7 years and had to give up). happy this place is here, i hope they do well; this strip mall has been known to kill restaurants.

I was really hopeful that I would like thus new restaurant, but I was disappointed. It is a friendly place and has a nice local feel to it, but the food is typical Midwest Mexican food. Looks good, but is bland. It is not bad, but doesn't really have the strong favors and spiciness that I want.

We are excited to have this new restaurant in town. Everything we had was good, not exceptional. There are lots of menu choices. We had combination platters and apple soda for a total of $23.01 including tax. Platters include three items with rice and beans. The friendly but busy waitress answered our questions about the rice milk they had on tap and thoughtfully brought us a generous free sample.
