SW Burbs--show me the Mexican

DebbieJ | Apr 24, 2005 11:45 PM

Just moved back to the Chi-town area after 5 years in Los Angeles.

My fav take-out in LA was a great little Baja-style Mexican joint. Big fat chicken burrito with rice, whole pinto beans, tomato, and cheese. I often got it enchilada style smothered in red sauce with more cheese melted on top. Yum! And they had the best horchata!

Now I'm stuck out in the SW burbs and what I've found so far (El Famous Burrito in Orland and Jalapenos in Orland/Homer Glen) just ain't cutting it. We went to Burrito Jalisco in Orland and that was a step in the right direction.

I'm in Lockport, so New Lenox and maybe even Joliet are not out of the question.

Show me the good stuff!
