The food is ample, with a diverse menu. Margaritas are ok, but I expected an excellent one, and was somewhat disappointed in the "off" taste. It was a Saturday night and they close at 10.

This is the 3rd time we tried this place and it has been consistently BAD. Service was horrible. I asked for salsa that was medium or mild 3 different times and it never arrived. We waited for over 45 minutes for our food and the restaurant was not at all busy. I had the steak Fajitas and they came cold... More

This is a place I have been going very often, I love the carne asada, the bistec ranchero. I ordered also chiles rellenos, but unfortunately the shrimp was not good. The nice waiter (Luis) offered kindly to change for a small additional fee. However, when I got the final bill the extra charge was excessive for the fix. Given my... More

Arrived here because the Mexican place just south in Vernon Hills said we didn't need a reservation, when we arrived, it was an hour wait. No room at the bar. Walked in to Tacos, seated immediately, served immediatly, good food, good Margaritas at a lower price. I'll be back.

Started going to the round lake location years ago. We now go to libertyville because it's closer to our home. Not sure what the problem is but this is not a well run restaurant. Dirty, run down, drunks, order errors, long wait and uneven food delivery... The list goes on. Too many options for good Mexican food.

How is it that a Mexican restaurant can fail so miserably at their own holiday. I come here enough to know when the service is good. Tonight was horrible. The only way to get service was to ask. Our table was in the bar in the line of fire and yet everyone that walked by ignored us. Unless we asked... More

This restaurant is very nice looking, with charming decor. Beyond that, there's nothing special. The food is mediocre and pricey. The margaritas where expensive and weak on the tequila. The big problem is the service. Everyone was friendly, but the dinning room is very chaotic. It was not busy, but the staff was in chaos. Every thing we ordered came... More

Service was good and friendly. Found the menu to be a bit pricey in that they do not offer any combo plates unless you order components A La Carte. Food was OK, but nothing worth an out of the way trip.
