The food here is SO tasty!! Full of flavour and delicious ingredients. Cheap food, but lovely. Frozen margarita is delicious too. Venue is fairly basic, but the food is great for a quick eat. Well worth a try!

Just popped in looking for late lunch on windy (duh!?!) day in Chicago. Two of us were gluten free and this was perfect. One likes only salads and it worked for him too. Everybody happy.

I tried the lime Margarita and the 2 taco combination. 1 pork and 1 lime grilled steak. Both we're good but the pork was excellent! Highly recommend visiting for a delicious but affordable meal.

Excellent casual taco joint. Had the fish tacos that were excellent. Homemade salsa was great. Wife had the vegetarian bowl and they had vegetarian tamales Both were great. They did not have tofu for tacos though. Food was fresh and flavorful.

Just enjoyed three Tacos from Flaco's Taco. Order the Cowboy, Fish, and Taco of the week all three where very good (Two Tacos would have been plenty) but I couldn't stop myself. Affordable prices for being so close to downtown.
