RE: DON'T go to Lalo's
Not certain were everyone is coming from I have had very good meals at Lalo's. They are not as cheap (but still not overpriced) as the local ma and pa type places in and around the Chicagoland area but they also offer a nicer setting then most of these places. Also,
Lalo's is a family run establishment, they are not a chain although they maintain several locations.
