Potato Burrito - Chicago Area - Help Locating Tue, 12/6/05 7:54 PM (permalink)
Hi All,

One of my co-workers used to bring in these Huge Potato Burritos many years back. Since I have lost touch with most of them I was hoping someone here might be able to help?

From what I remember:

Came from Southside area, maybe even suburbs
Real Potatoes - Cubed - "Not Hash Browns or Sweet Potatoes"
Possibly some kind of White Cheese - Maybe Swiss?

Any help would be appreciated.

    Never had a Potato Burrito on the South Side, but there's a place near me in Des Plaines that serves them. Can't remember the name, but they're located on the southwest corner of Oakton and Webster in a small strip mall. They are exactly as you describe, served alone or mixed with meat.

        I was shopping at Caputo's produce market across the street from the place today. It is called Chelos Taqueria. It did not appear to be closed, but I could be wrong.

          Hi Buddy,

          I should have been more specific, I arrived at 10pm, they close at 9pm.

          I stopped by there today and bought a chicken and steak burrito, the steak was excellent and I haven't gotten to the chicken yet.

          I should have orderd a plain one too, maybe next time.

          The one I remember was pretty much plain potato with just a slight taste of onion, green pepper, and some sort of cheese.

          The restuarant was small but the food was good and people working there were very nice.

          Thanks for the rec - I'll go back there again.

            My pleasure Iceman.

            Just so ya know, this neighborhood is LOADED with good Mexican Joints ranging from taquerias to family style to white tablecloth.

            If you need anymore ideas, gimme a holler.
