This Southwest Side eatery, which serves several popular dishes from the Jalisco region of Mexico, used to be a carryout-only affair. But owners added a new dining room in 2009, and you can now enjoy specialties such as carne en su jugo (beef, bacon, radishes, beans, grilled onions and cilantro in a beef broth), tacos and quesadillas on site. From the handmade tortillas to the (extremely) hot sauce on every table, everything is made fresh in house. And should you get a late-night hankering for huevos rancheros at an odd hour, your server will be happy to deliver a plate of rice, beans and two over-easy eggs topped with red sauce--or any breakfast dish, for that matter--any time of day or night. Need something to cut through the heat? Try a rusa, grapefruit soda, salt and lime served in a chilled mug.
