Tacos are one of the major things students think of when they think of Mexican food. Our area has many restaurants for authentic Mexican cuisine, as well as the popular fast food chain, Taco Bell.

Mia’s Cantina is a small corner restaurant in downtown Mount Prospect that serves a select, but old fashioned, Mexican food. They serve three to four tacos, depending on the meat, with a variety of toppings. The atmosphere is very authentic, the restaurant is well lit, and everything about it seems handcrafted. The restaurant has great sidewalk traffic and has a fantastic catering menu.

Salsa 17 serves three tacos with soft shells and tender meat. It is located in downtown Arlington Heights for easy access to students. The guacamole is extraordinary and the atmosphere provides a fantastic authentic vibe. Their prices allow for students to eat there regularly, and it is many students’ favorite.

Señor Pollo opened up this year and had a remarkable startup. It has a large open space to house a large amount of people, as well as a bar for adults to come and relax during their lunch. The staff is very friendly, and they seem to truly enjoy working there. Señor Pollo offer great deals for students like 3 tacos, a burrito, or a torta for five dollars. Overall, it seems to hold potential to be a great new Mexican restaurant.

Different from the others, but still good, is Taco Bell. Taco Bell has a variety of tacos like the Doritos Locos taco and the taco supreme which are all delicious. Taco Bell is quick, cheap, and delicious.

At the end of the day, the nearby suburbs provide great taco options. It all depends on what the consumer is feeling: cheap and quick or savory and sit-down.
