You cannot go wrong with Tacos el Norte in Lake Zurich!! The atmosphere is family, the location is in a small strip mall - so very underwhelming. But, when you get inside, you feel like family! The food is authentic Mexican thru and thru! And they remember you when you come again! Never a bad meal there! They also know Mexico very well! We felt so welcomed and have gone back many times! People I know say this is really the best restaurant in Lake Zurich!

The atmosphere leaves something to be desired, but the food is good and the prices are reasonable. On the weekends they have mariachis going from table to table. Good margaritas also.

Great food, friendly staff and reasonably priced. We have only been there for dinner, and the restaurant is ALWAYS busy by 6 p.m.

Wouldn't go anywhere else for true mexican food. Best ever guacamole and flan. We are weekly regulars for take-out, sometimes twice a week.

Tacos El Norte had the best Burritos and Chimichangas I have had anywhere. The portion was huge and my husband and I could have shared one entree and be full! The Service was great and fast. When we pulled up to the location the parking lot was full but judging from the outside we didn't realize how much space the inside really was. It surprised us to know it was a bigger dinning space. Amazing Strawberry Mango Margaritas also You must Try this place if you are in Lake Zurich and it was an easy walk from our hotel.
