The chips that they give you when you sit down is really good. I ate so much that I wasn't even hungry for my dinner, but I ordered it anyways. I ordered the skirt steak dinner and it was delicious, but leftovers are not so...More

Best low priced, well prepared, good tasting Mexican food in Mundelein. Out of the way spot, but worth finding! Has sister restaurant in Libertyville with indoor outdoor seating if you want to go more upscale.

It's a very informal diner populated mostly by people who are Mexican. I take that as a good sign, like a sushi restaurant with a largely Japanese clientele. There is a huge take out business and the prices are very inexpensive but the food is...More
