Read good things about Yerbabuena on Trip Advisor. Went on a Tuesday night before Thanksgiving and at 7pm the place was packed. Probably due to the holiday coming up.Had the chicken fajitas which were good but portions of guac and pico de gallo were too small. Came with 4 tortillas and was charged for extra. Service was just ok, I... More

Nice little place in downtown lisle. Guacamole was good. My burro Patron was good a little more queso would make it better. My husband had the flautas which were good not great. Loved my margarita and the salsa was awesome!

Last month I found myself on Main Street in downtown Lisle, Illinois, a western suburb of Chicago. There’s a great little Mexican restaurant called Yerbabuena that lived up to its word-of-mouth reputation. Miguel, the owner, whipped up samples of the specialty drink of the night, Cactus Tuna Margarita, that caught our eye when we saw it on the chalkboard. Made... More

I was in Lisle on business and had time for a leisurely lunch. I was driving down Main Street in hopes of seeing a place with outdoor seating when I came across this restaurant. While it was a bit windy for dining outside, it was perfect in that the food was outstanding and the service just right. I had the... More

I was excited to visit Yerbabuena and have what I heard was great Mexican food. I enjoyed our "tapas" appetizer and my pork tamales were very good. I ate every bite. My friend enjoyed the tapas and her taco salad entree. Service however, was beyond indifferent. We were first offered a table in the 1st floor bar area -- a... More

Yerbabuena is our favorite restaurant in the area. The new location is absolutely beautiful. We were able to sit upstairs on the balcony on a beautiful night and it felt like being on vacation! Yerbabuena's margaritas are always the perfect start. This time I had I had the tequila Diablo salmon and it was so good. The Diablo sauce is... More

Great atmosphere. My sister's dinner was the best meal on the table. She had the paella. It was amazing. I ordered more traditional combo platter that was just ok. Nothing special. I would definitely go back again. I would just order different. Overall good dining experience.

Since opening their new place, they've seemed to encounter a few growing pains/poor service issues. I am sure they will get everything straightened out soon.
