We were looking for a change from our usual go-to Mexican restaurant in the N.W. suburbs and, after reading the many positive TA reviews, decided to try Tacos Guanajuato. Maybe we caught them on an off day, the chef might have changed, or possibly our...tastes are just very different from that of those other positive reviewers but we found T.G. to be terrible. Let me be specific. The Guacamole & Chips were both very small portions and, while the chips were fine, the guac. was rather tasteless. We also ordered Fry Fish Tacos and Tilapia Tacos. The Fry Fish had an unpleasant off taste. The Tilapia was OK but as with the guac. lacked much flavor. We also had the Pollito con Mole, which was terrible. The mole had no flavor other than salt which was in such abundance as to make the dish almost inedible. While we are passionate about supporting local business, we found T.G. to be an experience we would not repeat.More

Had to wait for an hour at the restaurant for a pickup.....was given completely wrong parcel (Beef Burrito.....I do not eat Beef) ...next day went to exchange the order, was told that restaurant is doing a favor by providing originally order item and is complimentary........that...was still fine, but the food (Gulf of Mexico) seemed to have gone bad and caused an upset stomach.....pathetic food and service...pls avoid if you can !More

Just discovered the best taco restaurant ever. SOOOO worth the short trip to Kildeer IL. Check out @Taco G (Tacos Guanajuato), 20771 N. Rand Rd., 827-847-1056. To start, we feasted on rib eye guacamole and shrimp quesadilla. All house made tortillas and chips, and salsas,...this was a foodies dream come true. We chose 3 very creative tacos, shrimp, octopus, and lamb. The octopus and lamb were off the menu specials. (They rotate monthly). We love mole and haven't had luck finding great homemade mole in the city the menu, made recommendations and was quite charming. Who could ask for more?! Can't wait to return!!!! Ps you should also check out their sister restaurant Guanajuato in Winnetka. Both are owned by chef/partners Chef Diaz (@tacosguanajuato_) and Margarita Challenger.More

Ordered carryout from here twice, and both times the order was over 15 mins past the pickup time. Instead of apologizing and tying to correct the issue, they make excuses such as "the internet isn't working" or "I shouldn't enter a specific time" even though...I chose ASAP and didn't pick a specific time...too many other good taco places out there - give your business to one that actually cares about their customers!More

If you like mexican food this place is for you. Very clean location with great customer service and a nice atmosphere. Given the freshness and quality of the food they have very reasonable prices. They make great burritos and chicken/shrimp tacos that come with slices...of avocado, lettuce and sour cream.More

Word of mouth and a write up in the local newspaper were positive, so we gave it a try. $3.00 tacos are the Tuesday special. We ordered barbacoa, steak, and ground beef tacos. The barbacoa was flavorful, if just a touch dry. Ground beef and...steak tacos were served crispy. A welcome accompaniment to excellent guacamole was sliced jicama. Tortilla soup was tomato-based, creamy, and rich. Flan for dessert was the best I've had in a long time. This little storefront is down the street from a couple of sit-down Mexican restaurants. Bypass those and head here. It's not fancy- order at the counter, staff brings the food to your table. They have a small bar with margaritas and a small outdoor patio.More

Fresh, clean, inviting! They have a nice variety of tacos from bacon & chorizo (sinfully delicious) to rib eye (fabulous, slightly singed and perfect) to grilled shrimp (loved it). They also have salmon and tilapia tacos. Margaritas (regular and skinny) are available as well as...beer, from bottled indies to the more conventional variety. Staff was pleasant and friendly. Big screen TV on the wall. I did a carry out but I really loved my tacos and I certainly plan to return.More
