I have been here many times and have never been disappointed by the food and drinks. It is small, therefore, very noisy. It is definitely not date-friendly. The music is also quite load and dance club like.

Saw the great reviews on Trip Advisor so we decided to try it. The food was fabulous and I really liked the small portions so we could try several items. I started off with a drink. It's so difficult to find places that use real fruit in their drinks. Most use syrups. This place makes them with fresh fruit and... More

Went for lunch, I had the squash soup special and husband had the torta. Both were delicious and I thought generous. Husband thought the Margareta WA the best he'd ever had. We went at 1 on Saturday and got seated right away. Staff was very attentive and willing to make menu suggestions. If you get a chance to eat here... More

Popular suburban Mexican restaurant. Fantastic selection of tacos. Hand crafted cocktails. Very hard to get a table w/o a 30 + minute wait. Tables are small and the restaurant can get very crowed. That being said the food at Bien Trucha is great. Try to dine there if in the Western Suburbs.

Bien Trucha is a popular favorite in our family! Upon being sat down, you are greeted by your waiter and given complimentary retried beans with homemade chips, which I am a huge fan of. The corn (esquites) and guacamole are to die for, and I love the "De Champis"! (Cheese and mushroom soft tacos) One evening, we were lucky enough... More

This restaurant was recommended by a colleague from the area. My other colleagues and I decided to give it a try. I'm so glad we did! The atmosphere is warm and cozy. In fact, the small tables are the only issue I had, but it was a minimal issue and does not deter from the experience. The music is great... More

I had heard great things about Bien Trucha and I'm so thankful that my schedule finally allowed us to visit! The specialty margaritas are amazing! Our group of four shared four plates of Street Tacos, an appetizer of Guacamole, and a side of Esquites. The restaurant is spendy ...it's also very small and very loud, but it is worth the... More

This is by far my favorite place to get tacos!!! I have adored every dish I've ever ordered here. Even though it is a bit of a drive from where I live, I have no problem going out of my way to eat here. Warning, a line can form out the door before it opens so be there early or... More

Was a pleasant surprise of really good food. Didn't look very appealing but excellent taste and flavor. Glad a buddy sent me here you won't be disappointed.

This was my first time here with my husband and friends and it was amazing! To start the ambiance is great as well as the wait staff. The drinks were good! I had a sangria with bourbon in it and the others had margaritas. We shared an assortment of delicious tacos and tried a yummy shrimp and cheese dish. I... More
