OK, I tried searching the archives, but found nada. Any recommendations for mexican in Arlington Hts, Buffalo Grove, Mt. Prospect, Elk Grove, Rolling Meadows, etc etc?? Someplace we can run out to at a moments notice.
My wife likes Las Palmas in Buffalo Grove but to me it seems that everything has a "refried beans-sheen" to it.
It is easier visiting my old neighborhood in Edgewater/Rogers Park, but I don't know why I can't find some good small restaurants around here (there is a large Hispanic population in these suburbs, why no good restaurants?) The last place I tried was Senor Taco in Rolling Meadows, and there HAS to be better.
One restaurant with some promise was Nuevo Mexico Restaurant in Palatine, but I haven't been back in a year. Thanks,
