The salsa and the queso tasted great. We had excellent friendly and fast service. They kept our water glasses full. We had a unique request on our order that came out without any mistakes. Excellent food.

There is also a CTA "L" line (Blue Line) that will take you to the city. There was an accident with this line a while ago and it was out of service. Call or check with the CTA first.
