“Very Good Carryout Mexican in Glenview”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

I wouldn't visit "El Mexican" expecting a real restaurant experience...though there are a couple of tables if you do want to eat there. It is designed as more of a carry out place; and they do a great job of that. They reportedly use only high quality ingredients and make their tortillas, salsa, guacamole, etc. in-house. The quality shows - the tacos are delicious (I've tried chicken, pork & steak); the ingredients taste very fresh and not at all gloppy or greasy. We've been there twice, and both times service was very friendly, professional and quick. The menu when we visited was limited to tacos, burritos and empanadas - with a wide variety of each (at least 8 kinds of tacos). There's a "complete meal" that features 3 tacos, beans & rice - which is a pretty good deal. We will definitely return.
