Chicago's Best Mexican

Out of about half-a-gazillion choices here in Chicago what do you think is the best? Personally, I really enjoy Neueva Leon on 18th street and Arturo's on Western. Okay, Frontera Grill too, if I am feeling ritzy. What about you guys?

    Neuva Leone definately. I also frequently go to Santiago's in downtown LaGrange or to one of the Westmont taquerias. Taco Grill on Ogden or Taco Express at Quincy & Cass are both run by mexican families and the food is excellent.

    Yep, still there! I took my mother and cousin to the late show last summer after "a few" margaritas over at Frontera.

    I grew up with Lazo's & Arturo's on Western & Armitage.  I would say Mi Tierra on Kedzie in Little Village...their Huachinango Al Mojo (Red Snapper with garlic & lime) is AMAZING!!!!!
     
    Also, Cemitas on North Ave in Humboldt Park is great too.  Their Signature Cemitas...try al pastor...their is no one else in the city that makes anything similar!!!  It's a little shack, but was reviewed on one of the Food Networks.....Both places are definite stops for whoever is lookin for best Chicago Mexican Food!

    I know it's a chain, but I'm partial to "That Little Mexican Cafe" in Highland Park. I like the fajitas there. I think they also have a location in Evanston, but I'm not crazy about that one.
     
    Lupita's in Evanston is also good.
