  1. I’m from the other side of 26 street lol I’ve been in California,Arizona.New Mexico Nevada and honestly the Mexican food sucks lol everything comes with cheddar cheese lol and any tacos with just Cilantro and onions is a street taco that comes with some stewed meat lol 😂. Wow Los Gallo’s I grew up in that restaurant. Second best Carnitas in the city El Molina’s 31 Harding/Pulaski .

  2. I live in Texas currently but I would go back to Chicago in a heart beat for the Mexican food. It's beyond compare.

  3. I'm so sick of hipster establishments trying to put spins on ethnic cuisines and ruining them in the process.

    On the other hand, these wonderful looking restaurants are perfect to me.

  4. Looks great but 26th street in the little village area is a damn war zone. There's plenty of other places to eat Mexican fare around Chicago.

  5. Didn't realize the Mexican influence ran this deep or this long in Chicago. Pretty cool. I'll be sure to visit next time I'm in town. My favorite is tamales & menudo or tacos al pastor.

  6. As a Chicagoan, I'm convinced that we have the best Mexican food in the US outside of the border states. Most of that really good Mexican food is on the South Side in neighborhoods like Pilsen and Little Village. Sure, we have haute Mexican cuisine with RIck Bayless's Topolobampo in River North (worth a try all the same), but the downhome stuff is just better south of Madison St. with only a few exceptions.
