I love a mixture of chorizo and pork prepared in the Mexican way in a burrito. They'll prepare whatever combo you desire, done to perfection. Corn, either on the cob or cut off in a cup that is slathered with margarine(?) and a dry grated cheese is another of my favorites. Ambiance is nothing spacial but i like this joint... More

Not as good as it used to be. Food is not consistent. Service is good but as I said quality has slipped enough that I am looking for another Mexican fast food place.

Basically it is Mexican fast food but at a really high level. The chili relleno taco is vegetarian and spectacular. Chorizo and egg tacos are also very good. Ask for the carrots and jalapeno as a side. This is a lunch spot but you won't go wrong with anything including the el Pastor.

Love their Mexican food, especially the steak tacos, steak burritos, pork tamales and the carrot pepper mix. All of the ingredients are fresh and of great quality. Great service. We eat in but it is more of a take out place.

This is a decent Tex-Mex restaurant. They have daily specials, such as $1.59 tacos on Tuesdays. The restaurant is small and the staff is pleasant.

Decided to stop here for lunch the other day. I had the 2 taco meal and my wife a veggie burrito. She liked her veggie burrito but the steak in the tacos was very bland. Doesn't need to be spicey but the only real flavor came from the fact that the tortillas were fried. The other negative was the red... More

I have eaten a t several of the El Famous establishments. They are a fantastic value. The Orland Location does not live up to the rest of the chain. This is close to my house so I try it once every other month. Every time I do I swear I will never go back. The food is not up to... More

While over the years, many other similar places have opened, this is still the original oversized burrito place in my eyes. For many years Burrito Jalisco had a much better product, but they have let their meat quality slip over the years. Now El Famous is right back in the race. Consistent taste from Orland Location.

El Famous has excellent mexican food. We have ordered from here many times and always get great quality, delicious food. The prices are little high, but they have certain days of the week called Taco Days where the tacos are discounted and a great value.

El famous has the best burritos on Orland Park. They are loaded with meat. The rest of their food is awesome too.
