I missed good Mexican food when we lived in Colorado. There were lots of Mexican places but only a couple really good ones. There are lots and lots of great ones here!
One of the first places we went was Azteca De Oro: 3731 North Clark Street, Lakeview Chicago, IL 60613.
We had lunch here and it was really good. I had a taco plate and Mike had a burrito. Great prices and fun decor, too.
Another Mexican place we liked a lot was El Cid 2: 2645 North Kedzie Avenue, Logan Square, Chicago, IL 60647
Not sure if there’s an El Cid 1, but El Cid 2 was very good. Big fruity margaritas, and really tasty soft tacos. It’s right by the Logan Square Blue Line so it’s convenient, too.
Tarascas: 2585 N. Clark St., Lincoln Park, Chicago, 60614
This place is only a block away from our apartment but it took us forever to actually go here. They have signs all over the place touting their gigantic margaritas (45 and a half ounces). I don’t really want a gigantic margarita (usually gigantic things are merely gigantic and not very good) but one day we went in anyway out of sheer laziness combined with starvation. I had a normal sized margarita which was actually very good. We also got a huge plate of nachos, also very good.
