    Ordered delivery from here last night, The Joliet location. The food was horrible!!! Which we were surprised because had pretty decent reviews & my boyfriend has eaten here, said it was pretty good. Well after we received our order and opened our containers. We were shocked to see every single piece of Avocado on our tacos had sections of black, yes black! I call to let them know because they charge $1.50 per order. Gentleman asks would you like to come pick some up. Seriously? His attitude was he didn't care. I then told him I would leave a review with the pictures I took. Again really didn't seem like he cared. Then I get a call back, from a young lady, who tells me I should take it up with the delivery service, our food sat under their lamps for an hour before it was picked up to be delivered. I was in disbelief, our food sat for an hour and you still sent it out? I've worked in the restaurant business for may years, and that right there is beyond negligent. You are putting your customers at risk allowing food to go out after sitting for an hour, food starts to die and can start forming bacteria after 20mins, and can double after 40mins. Knowing this and having had to follow FDA guidelines I knew we needed to toss the food immediately! What little we did taste before that call, Not sure how you can mess up tacos but the meat tasted like it had been microwaved, Avocado slices had black, not good at all, you can not eat an Avocado that looks like that, it's rotten. The fries for the kids where hard, so hard, like stale. My 5 year old asked, why are these so hard? So I grabbed one fry to try and they were hard. Like they sat out all day hard. I told both to stop eating them. My poor kids couldn't even eat their food. I'm not going to risk the health of my family. This restaurant should be ashamed!!!! We will NEVER eat here again. Wish there was an option for zero stars! Please be very careful eating here. They truly need a revisit on guidelines! The health department should really visit this place and re-educate the staff..They are going to get someone VERY sick.

    Amazing Authentic Mexican food! The Gordita de Rajas with avocado was a little messy but holly cow it was delicious! I’m extremely picky when it comes to pastor meat The pastor tacos here were by far one of the best tacos I’ve tried in the Joliet /Plainfield area! ! Give them a try you will not regret it!! I’ll be definitely coming back soon!

    BEST TACOS IN WILL COUNTY. Seriously don’t sleep on their tacos, 10/10 Everything on their menu is good, I’ve never had anything bad. They always include plenty of sauce and cut limes. The staff is super friendly and it’s always a delight when it’s taco night!

    Absolutely 5 star worthy! We are from out of town and looked through all the Mexican restaurants online (because tacos & burritos are life). Do your fat kid soul a favor and order the barbacoa chimichanga! The chicken chimichanga was also amazing, but their barbacoa was an 11 out of 10! It takes them a minute to get the food out, but it’s worth the wait for real quality.
