Just the other day someone asked me to recommend a good, authentic, Mexican restaurant in this area. I drew a blank. Then, a good friend asked me to meet him for lunch at this Mexican place in downtown Palatine. When I got there I waited about ten minutes for a table. Every spot was full. When I was seated, the...

We've lived in the area over 20 years, and passed by many times without venturing in. (The storefront looks much more like a tavern than a restaurant.) With other local sports bars and casual eateries being more crowded than usual on a Friday night since the Cubs are in the World Series, we decided to give Mexico Uno a try,... More

Oh yeah, this is the place for Mexican Food. Been a regular for over 19 years and I've never had a bad meal. Fresh made tamales, great guacamole, terrific big meal in a bowl soups. Great tasting beans and rice and every entree is a winner. While the standard chicken, beef and pork dishes are there you can also get... More

This is the best Mexican restaurant anywhere around Palatine for sure. The service is always warm and friendly and the food is just terrific. And the restaurant is surrounded by some of the best nightlife in Palatine.

This place is kind of hard to find but we eventually got there. When you walk in it is best described as a dive. You are looked at by everyone when you walk in because the place is really small and it feels a little uncomfortable. The waitress I think must be one of the owners of the place. She... More

A nice inexpensive place to get a good mexican lunch or dinner. My favorite is the Chicken Burrito Suizo which never fails to satisfy me in either quality or quantity. Chips and salsa are complementary (with purchase). A selections of mexican beers and other drinks are also available. The dining room is a bit spare with bare bones decorating and... More

We stopped after a long road trip to excellent friendly service and THE BEST Mexican food I have EVER had. Really. Honestly. And I'm a tough critic :-) We will definitely be back! :-)
