Been looking for some new mexican food to try near my neighborhood, specifically a place with great Al Pastor, Carnitas or Mariscos. Does anyone have any recommendations for places south of 56, north of 8 and west of 15? Seems that this area is pretty sparse when it comes to great mexican food. I know most of the places that everyone recommends are near downtown or south of there. While I don't mind driving down there for great mexican on the weekend once in a while it's farther than I'd want to drive for a weeknight meal.
As far as I know in the area I mentioned the places I frequent are:
- Lolita's Taco Shop for great carne asada fries
- Porkyland for average carnitas and al pastor
- MXN for good california burritos although quality seems to vary a lot by location and the fries are always soggy.
So far I haven't found any Mariscos type places or non-taco shop Mexican (ala Chilangos) in the area.
