Fish tacos are excellent! Fried fish or grilled. All meals freshly prepared. Guacamole and salsas are worth trying. Definitely worth going to for carry out Mexican that is above the average and in fact better than most sit down Mexican in area. Owner is a real gem. She really knows customer service.

The food was about the same quality as Chipotle, which is great, but a wider selection. The service was poor but that is likely just one person having a bad day. I probably wouldn't go back unless I got a hankering for some fish tacos otherwise I am headed to Chipotle.

Their food is incredibly delicious and fresh! Additionally they actually serve healthy food in a fast food type restaurant (i.e. grilled veggies, sweet potatoes, black beans, etc.). Their fish tacos are award winning. The grilled chicken is amazing and plentiful! Their salsa bar has about 4 fresh homemade salsas at all times plus other condiments like cilantro and limes. It's...

Love this place. The menu features lots of Mexican dishes, but they all seem to have a slight spin that makes them better than ordinary Mexican fare. All the tacos are top-notch, and the fish tacos are stellar. The fresh salsa bar is always a treat, and the service is great too. It's a little hard to find the first... More

This is what Chipotle wants to be when it grows up! Owner run and great staff. Eat hear if you ever get to Glen Ellyn and want fast casual.

We had forgotten how much we liked the fresh and reasonably priced food. It is a bit tucked away - just off Roosevelt Road. I hope people will seek them out and support them. Since the Dominic's moved out, the strip mall is desolate. If we don't support them it could be a death sentence for the shops still open.... More

We stumbled across this place after a performance at Drury Lane about three miles away down Roosevelt Road going south to I 355. We are so glad we found this place. My wife ordered a fish burrito and chilli, and I ordered a fajita with vegetarian ingredients. We both really liked the taste of our food and want to go... More

Been patronizing this establishment a few times a year as they are just off 355 and convenient when commuting back and forth to work. Great salsas to compliment the fish tacos. Staff is always very friendly. Yum!

Everything is fresh and delicious. The Fish Tacos received a Best Chicago Fish Tacos in the Western Suburbs in the Chicago Tribume. Well deserved. Crispy fried tilapia with cabbage, cuke and sauce on them. The chicken is grilled and properly seasoned. You always get complimentary chips and salsa when you come in and eat or take out.
