My FAVORITE stop for tacos located near Portage Park. Keep reading for details on the best Horchata, tacos, and more!
The parking lot and interior are what hold me back from a full 5 stars, but the food is beyond delicious.
My Menu Recommendations:
Al Pastor Tacos Shrimp Tacos Horchata Rice & Beans Red Salsa (SPICY)
Tips for your Visit:
For a summer outing, bring your food to the outdoor seating area and enjoy outside! Otherwise, I’d recommend taking out. Be warned: the food is spicy, especially the shrimp tacos and red salsa! Horchata is the perfect way to wash it down Order 3 tacos to get rice and beans included in your dinner!
A perfect summer Cubs game pregame, this BBQ spot was definitely a crowd favorite!
