Tho the outside doesn't look like much, and the inside still looks like the old Pizza Hut, the food is FANTASTIC, original and very reasonably priced! I've tried so many things and have never been disappointed. Waitress bring chips and salsa right away and don't hound you! Don't eat too many chips tho as you will never finish your meal... More

My wife and I stopped here on a recent Chicago area visit. The restaurant is in an old Pizza Hut building. We arrived in the late afternoon in that between dinner and lunch time. The restaurant still was pretty full with all people from Mexico. The menu selection is wide. I went with a variety of Tacos and my wife... More

I get a good indication of a quality Mexican restaurant by the number of Mexican families that dine at a location. It was primarily Mexican families that seem to know the menu well, which indicates they are regulars. I was not disappointed in the waitress recommendation of the fajita combination. It was very good in taste as well as generous... More

The ambience is nothing special, but the food is what you want. Large portions and an easy-to-find location not so far from O'Hare Airport.

A Mexican friend recommended this place. Food was tasty though somewhat salty. I had the mixed fajita (steak, chicken and shrimp combined). It was very good, and the rice and refried beans were flavorful as well. My husband got a chorizo gordita and a steak, which had more salt than flavor, unfortunately. He got it with cactus, which was like... More

I work close to here and come here occasionally - unfortunately the word got out at work so when I want to get away from work I can sometimes come here and find other addicted coworkers. This place is great - the service is always good and there is a HUGE variety of choices in their extensive menu. I have... More
