Best Mexican food in the Chicago area. Located in North West Indiana about 40 minutes from the loop. There's nothing on the menu that isn't excellent. I must stop. I've been going there for years.

Enchilada suizo the works is the best! Anything really here is good. Ask for the cheese and a japleno with your chips and dip and pick delicious gallo.

They have some of the finest and freshest Mexican food around. Staff is very friendly . I usually get the Fajitas deluxe and can never finish it. Also the Nachos Epsecial are awesome. Also the Queso Fondito with chorizo is phenomenal.

Nothing that special. I have heard people rave about this place for awhile. Maybe it was better before.
