“Great authentic Mexican food!”
Review of Taco's El Norte

The Taco's El Norte in Round Lake Beach is a wonderful place for authentic Mexican food. Very reasonably priced. Basic Mexican fare, but very well done and consistent. Note that there are other Taco's El Norte in the Chicago land area, but they are not all the same. They must be run by entirely different owners, as they all have different menus, levels of service, and food quality. The one in Round Lake Beach is by far the best.

Food was good, service was not. Ordered shrimp tacos which were probably the best I have ever had. Sadly it took a good 10 minutes for waitress to acknowledge us and then it took a long time for our food to arrive. We never saw the waitress after she brought our food, never got the bill and had to ask at the register.

If you want authentic Mexican food this is the place to come. Their Beef Caldo and Chicken Enchiladas are to die for. All their food is made fresh. Some places cook their meat in the morning and then reheat it during the day. Not this place. They cook all the meats for each order, by the order. . The flavors are indescribable. I live in Fox Lake and travel past a dozen Mexican restaurants which are all good to get to this place. They are well worth the trip. They are friendly and the service is excellent. You won't be disappointed.

Tacos El Norte is much better than the other Mexican restaurants in the area. It serves traditional Mexican fare that has a little flavor and some spiciness, which is very different than the other bland tasting offerings around here. The service is not the greatest, but the staff is very friendly and they are also welcoming to all customers.

This is the best Mexican food I've ever had, and and I've been to numerous restaurants. The staff is attentive, the food is fast, and amazing. I probably come here once a month.. Get the steak tacos :)
