San LuisLogan Square
In a city overrun by inexpensive Mexican fare, this Logan Square taqueria distinguishes itself with what we consider to be the best chilaquiles this side of the Texas Panhandle. The perfect blend of tortilla chips, salsa, eggs, cheese, onions and peppers, this dish works as a hangover helper or just a filling dinner. Entrees include seafood like spicy shrimp and snapper (huachinango) or platters like the chile rellenos served with rice, beans and a salad. Of course, you can grab budget-friendly burritos, tortas, tacos, tostadas too. (The tacos are especially good--try them with the tangy-sweet salsa verde.) With only six or so tables, the restaurant's a popular choice for neighborhood takeout. If you'd like to eat in, the dining room, done up in vibrant reds and sunny yellows, makes for a cheery if no-frills spot.
