This place has excellent tacos and burritos. I used to go to the location of 63rd and California (El Gallo de Oro) but it really became a nasty place. This location is cleaner and has one of the waitresses from the old place. She is great.

This is my favorite lunch stop. The Chile Relleno burrito is delicious! Restaurant is nothing fancy. I have been coming here for years, food is consistently great.

I have eaten lunch here many times over the years. Usually I will have the burrito which is huge but sometimes I will order the tacos. Their service is fast and the food is really good for what it is. If they are busy it may take a while to get your check when you are done eating. This is... More

There really aren't any good Mexican restaurants in the area but this is the best one. Not great but definitely fixes that craving.

Positive reviews were accurate! This was a great lunch! I'd go back again next time I am in this area of the greater Chicago area!

When my friends said burritos after the bar, I was expecting really greasy Mexican food. Not from El Gallo! Huge burritos that hit the spot. It took less than 5 minutes to get our food when we ordered. I wish I has somewhere like this in my area.

Best food ever!!! Even the kids love the food. Very friendly staff and speedy service. They are always busy. Not very expensive either.
