The burritos are huge! And very juicy and tasty. But, I needed to add a little salt this time. Very casual environment. Pick a table to sit down and eat or you can grab it to go. No waitresses. They have hot sauces you can grab from up front. Prices are fine, especially considering the large portion sizes.. Burritos the... More

My husband has to stop here anytime we are in the area. This time we even stopped on the way out of town for 4 burritos to go. This is in a strip mall, nothing fancy but it is clean and oh so good! HUGE menu. The biggest burrito I have ever seen. The small was even bigger than I... More

I love going to El Famous Burrito. One of my favorite dishes is the steak quesadillas. The service is pretty fast and the restaurant is clean. Great place to get fast Mexican food, and not have to go to Taco Bell.

We came here for lunch. I had chicken tacos and a horchata. My husband had a steak, pork and chicken taco. His favorite was the pork. My tacos were delicious, as was the horchata. The menu is super large and posted all over the restaurant. It's a fun place with great salsa that you can take to the table. Very... More

My wife and I were staying in Naperville and looking for a convenient place for a meal. We found El Famous Burrito in a strip mall near our hotel. We both ordered a burritio, and we needed to take half of them back to the hotel to finish them. They were huge. She had a fish burrito, and I had... More

Every time I visit I've only ordered the steak burrito. Great place to visit late or for dinner but if there are more than a few people in line I feel the wait is too long. This won't deter me from coming here many more times though..

First off, I've been going to El Famous for a while..dating back to when the Summit shop was the only location. I also hit the Bloomingdale Rd location earlier in the week. So that said, It takes a lot for me to get to a point where I'd bash a place but this location has it coming. I ventured in... More

Love the food and personnel. Only thing I would change is for the kitchen to squeeze the juice from taco meat so the tortillas are not so hard to handle. Juice goes everywhere and easy on shirt when you bite on the taco. Other than that. Ohh yes yummy yummy!!

We are regulars at the location on 75th and Rickert. Love their wide selection of food, all very tasty and made fresh. We are headed in to try their breakfast menu too. Ample room to sit and enjoy the food, have a beer with dinner or sweets for desert. Prices are very reasonable. Great for late night munchies too.

Great Mexican food. Well made and with generous portions. However I do not recommend the over priced and poorly made Churros. If you have never tried the Sangria Señorial I highly encourage you try it. It is a grape flavored soda.
