I like to scout out Mexican restaurants in places where I stay. This was a gem! Not fancy, but the food was fantastic and reasonably priced. Not really much place to sit and eat so I got mine to go.

We had a fantastic quick lunch on way back to rental car return. This is very authentic food with generous portions.
We spilt a spicy chicken burrito with everything which includes lettuce, tomato, beans, sour cream & cheese. It was fantastic! We also ordered chicken tamales with spicy green sauce. Since I am used to Americanized version mine needed extra sauce.

I highly recommend this popular local place!

I only had the chance to stop in once but should have gone more, very authentic Mexican food and the prices were outstanding!

The tamales and atole there are amazing just like in Mexico, very fast and friendly service and the price is just the cherry on top.

I had just returned from a trip out of town to Dallas! Had a great time there but was hungry once I got back to Chicago. My brother says lets go to this taco spot around the corner from the airport. It's inside of a strip mall that is attached to a gas station. All I can say is these were the best steak tacos ever in life. The tacos were flavorful and the meat was cooked well and was not chewy like some taco places. I will be going back to Manolos more than I probably should, but it's well worth it!
