I Absolutely Love this Restaurant

I have been coming to this restaurant since I was at least 7 years old. Our family would eat here after church every other Sunday and frequently throughout the year whenever we get a craving for some. This restaurant has not changed anything about their food since then. Their chicken or Steak Tostadas are the most unique of all Chicago. I can't find another place like it. The ceiling is painted of beautiful bright c... view more

Premium Priced, Econo Size!

It seems that in these tough economic time, even the succesful businesses are cutting down. $8 for a burrito the size of a flauta is just not a good deal for your buck. I would recommend La Pasadita, which is only a few minutes away. For the same amount of money, you will get twice the amount of food. I've been a long time customer of Tecalitlan but seems that lately the size of their tacos and burritos has shrunk dr... view more

good service, atmosphere and the BEST al pastor

My husband and I live in Pilsen and eat a lot of Mexican food. We love tacos. We wanted to take his mom and our 18 month old to a restaurant for dinner and picked Tecalitlan. We loved the bustling room on a Sunday night. Big family dinners going on all around us was nice. Our server promptly got a high chair for our son and called him ""champion"" which made me happy :). The guac was delish, the salsa was fresh... view more

Everyone Left Sick

The food here is horrible. The rice was bland, the guacamole was of hersey squirt consistency, the pico de gallo was nasty, the steak was overcooked, and the service was horrible. I will never go here again. Everyone at our table got sick; one of us threw it up right after eating. We left almost all the food on the plates. Horrible, there's way better Mexican.

Better food at Cemitas

I've eaten here a ton, and it's good. But a better bet is Cemitas Puebla in Humboldt Park\r ""I blog for Diners Drive ins and Dives, and figured I'd check out Cemita Puebla myself. It was the best Mexican food I've ever had. Even better than the food I ate in real Mexico. Here's my review of it for delish dot com \r On this week's ""Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,"" Guy Fieri visited Cemitas Puebla, a Mexican joint ab... view more

This place is the Best!

It has now been two years since my love affair with Tecalitlan began. I moved to Chicago from San Francisco and was new to the area and so one day I went to explore my new hood. I walked by this building and saw a lot of people going and coming. I looked up to see that it was a Mexican food resturant, only my favorite type of food in the world! I walked in not knowing what to expect and was pleasently surprised by th... view more

Excellent Food

I write this strictly about the food. It was excellent. I love mexican food and I must say this is the best I have had. I would totally recommend this restaurant. I can't wait to bring more friends to it, i plan to go back very soon. \r \r The parking leaves a bit to be desired but the service was efficient. I was on a lunch hour so I plan to check out the bar (quality and prices) next time I go.\r \r

Great food, but a little negligent

The food was excellent with a good amount of flavors and texture. I'm from LA, so I know decent Mexican food and this one is up to par. Good amount of vegetarian choices. I gave 4/5 instead of 5/5 stars because the service was peculiar. The server did the bare minimum and was not attentive. He acted like we were taking up his time or something. He did not listen and messed up on several things. In particular, ... view more

I moved for southern california-land of awesome, cheap mexican food. I love mexican and was a bit discouraged because I couldn't find anything decent here. Then I happened upon Tecalitlan and fell in love. I sat down and was given chips and salsa-the litmus test for mexican restaurants. The salsa was spicy but not overly hot and had an amazing flavor. It was fresh and addicting. Then came the burrito. Oh, my s... view more
