This is a great Mexican restaurant. The guacamole was cold and chips were fresh. The skirt steak was tender and cooked just right. The steak or chicken enchiladas with mole sauce were the best. Want good authentic Mexican food this is the place. One drawback...More

This is authentic cuisine--a cut above your average or even more expensive Mexican restaurant. Emphatically NOT the place where the three or four "typical" ingredients (refried beans, rice, sour cream, guac) are all over everything. Even the house salad is complex. Wait staff is experienced,...More

Followed Trip advisor to Wholly Frijoles. Service was nice. Place is strip mall type restaurant. Had enchiladas, which were really good, especially if you like a lot of cheese with your chicken. Chips kind of bland. Salsa nice. Will go back.

One of the better chile rellenos I've had in a while. My partner got a (wine-poached) pear salad that was summery and delicious. Both came with a tamarind/fruit soup that was a great idea, but too sweet for my taste. Very inexpensive!

If you are in the area Wholly Frioles is a mush eat stop for our family. Try to make it a couple of times a year for the last ten years when visiting family in Skokie.

We were in town to see family and they recommended this place. It was standard Mexican food fare. Chips and salsa were fine. The service was very good. But I had never had a fried burrito. It was fantastic!! This place is on my future...More

We went to meet a friend last night at Holy Frijoles for dinner. I haven't been there in some time but I always liked it very much in the past. It was also almost impossible to get a table during busy times. Well the quality...More

Up scale Mexican fare. Has your normal tacos and burritos but also some outstanding other dishes and sauces. Owner/chef worked at the old Pump Room as the sous chef for a number of years. Great food & leisurely dining experience
