Cool place. Great vibe and the outside bar/patio is killer. Food was VERY good. Favorite dish was the Mexican corn and also the Pablano cream soup.

Only negative is a long line to get in right at 5 when they open but there wasn't a long line once everyone was seated so it appears it's a bit of restaurant theatrics to stir attention and buzz which I didn't care for.

All in all a great place, I highly recommend and it's in a cute downtown area. Just plan on being there around 4:50 to get in for dinner with less wait time.

They had a unique presentation of classic Mexican foods. We started with their guacamole which wasn't any different than others we have had. We decided to try a few of their tacos: shrimp, portobello mushroom and swordfish. The side of roasted corn served in a bowl was very tasty. My husband and I got there early and put our name in and was seated outside. They take a limited number of reservations so prepare to wait especially if you have more than 4 people.

We needed a quick dinner to get to a live performance. Called a few days before and got in for the kitchen side with reservations. The menu selection was outstanding. They really know how to make a margarita - even with a customized request. And the guacamole is always outstanding. Especially the mango one. And don't miss the poblano soup. It's amazing. Everything on menu just great!

Bien Trucha has innovative cocktails and fresh, delicious tacos and upscale Mexican dishes. The waitstaff is attentive and helpful. Reservations are necessary most nights, but it is fun to get carry out and have a jamaica margarita while you wait at the bar for your order! Seating is tight and as with many restaurants that like to turn tables--they don't offer coffee!! Oh well, the coffee at the All Chocolate Diner is fabulous and you can get dessert there too.

I have heard great things about there and actually tried their new Naperville location, Quiubo, first. This place exceeded my expectations. Perfectly made cocktails, incredible food. The cazuelita de cameron, with house made corn tortillas, was a standout. The fish tacos were outstanding, and the steak and chorizo torta was dynamite as well. Some of the best Mexican food you'll find in the Chicago area (and there's a whole lot of good mexican in this town).
