El Famous BurritoNear West Side
Map | Find Parking
A tried-and-true lineup of Mexican favorites dominates this West Loop spot: fajitas, tacos, tortas, flautas, quesadillas, tamales and steak dinners. The local mini-chain proudly asserts that it's "The home of the football-sized burrito," and they're not kidding when they boast about portion size. Tacos and tortas are packed to the gills with meat, veggies and cheese, and house favorites such as the nacho platter don’t leave much spare room on the plate. Expect a dining area bathed in mellow, multi-colored lighting to please the late-night crowd, along with two flat-screen TVs usually tuned into sports for the happy hour and lunchtime gangs.
