If you want authentic Mexican food in Effingham area then try this place! I love their Jade Burrito. The prices are good. The only negative is the size of the restaurant is small and fills up quickly.

Very good authentic food and inexpensive. Staff is very friendly. Dining room is small and decor may not be the best, but you can't bat the food.

While driving from Indianapolis to St. Louis we stopped at Effingham. Taqueria Don Pedro had got good reviews so we chose to have lunch here. The kitchen was large and had a see through glass window. It looked clean enough but not the shiny, squeaky...More
