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.

...and then to rinse away the ritz, head on over to The Baton across the street to take in a show!

OMG, the Baton still exists? Shows how little I ever get in to the City.

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.
