  • This place is amazing. Cheap authentic tacos. Their tacos al pastor are the best I've found so far in Chicago.
  • Shrimp tacos the best
  • The only negative is that they don't have pitchers of Margarita. Glasses are $6.95 and tasty.
  • First time here and I fell in love! The guacamole is delicious, and the hand-made corn tortilla are superb! Will definitive come back soon.
  • Shrimp taco is to die for here. You have to try it.
  • Green Salsa is more like tomatillo. #Fail.
  • Service is okay. Cute Decor.
  • The tacos were really good the al pastor and steak are a def must try!
  • Shrimp tacos
  • The couple behind Bombon Bakery are also behind this cheery taqueria, where the menu is made up of taqueria standards (spit-grilled al pastor tacos, gooey queso fundido with chorizo).
  • Their signature taco is the crispy shrimp taco. Imagine excellent baja fish tacos but with the most perfectly, lightly tempura battered fried shrimp instead of its flakier cousin of the sea.
  • Micheladas are legit!
  • I think I'm going to baptize my first-born in the Salsa Verde here. It's that good. Yummmmm. I try to stop here every time I'm in Chicago.
  • Good tacos de Asada. Must admit price was ok.
  • Nice place. I absolutely loved the fish taco, but there was way too much cilantro on the chorizo taco.
  • So overpriced and service lacks. Sorry wont be coming here again..
  • Ok food. Amazing salsas. A bit pricey, but a bit classier than a traditional Mexican spot.
  • Tried the Mexican chopped salad for the first time. Awesome! Dressing is good, but just as wonderful with a little salsa.
  • Shrimp taco. Eat it.
  • They now have a liquer license. Drink away! Their Paloma is very fresh and tasty.
