Best Birria I have had in Chicago - better than anywhere in Pilsen. Excellent Birria - make sure to get the consomme and the roasted salsa. House made super fresh tortillas. It is impeccably clean. If you are in the neighborhood you have very few other options. Try it!

One of the real gems in the city. Awesome goat tacos; the meat is perfectly done, and the tortillas are excellent.

Well worth the trip! Excellent food. Tender delicious meat. Unbeatable handmade/homemade corn tortillas. I'm usually a flour tortilla man, but these were excellent. Also I'm a amateur that likes sour cream and cheese on my tacos. They don't have sour cream. Honestly you don't need it. It would hide too much of the perfect tasting meat. You need to ask... More

The Tacos de Chivo made it to the Best Taquerias in the US by Zagat in 2014. This is a simple place that only does one thing great: Birria!

Read about this restaurant on some Chicago must eat list. Yummy roasted goat is their specialty at this hole in the wall restaurant.

A great place for good eats, very friendly staff and good food, the restaurant is small but the staff gets it done, they are even making fresh tortillas which was wonderful to watch and even better to eat with the Birrieria.

We had read and heard alot of good things about this place. We were misled. Extremely small restaurant, large servings of birria are listed as 11 dollars a plate, but when we were asked if we wanted them in plates or bowls....we said bowls, not knowing that we would be charged an additional $2.50 per bowl for some soup added...

Although this place looks like a hole in the wall... oh yeah, it is... don't be scared away. So... while watching some late night food program while doing an elliptical workout, this place gets mentioned as one of the best places in Chicago for Mexican food. It looked interesting enough to stop my workout and write the name of the... More
