  • The best carnitas ever !
  • This Pilsen storefront traffics in arguably the best carnitas in Chicago. Buy it by the pound and ask for extra tortillas; you'll need them.
  • Best Carnitas in Chicago, not a fan of their salsas at all, but everything else is delicious!
  • Don't be late, people wait in long lines just to get some of the best carnitas in Chicago.
  • Tortillas, cilantro, minced onions, limes, pico de gallo, and the best carnitas in the city. You can order the deep-fried beef brain tacos, which taste like a savory eggy custard in a fried crust.
  • Get the goat and the carnitas, they have both "safe" and "adventurous" meat plates. Safe means white meats, adventurous means multi body parts. Delicious.
  • Snake your way between the dual lines up front and snag a rickety table, where you can quickly prep tacos from the platter of meat put before you, topping them with pico de gallo and a spurt of lime.
