Taqueria el Asadero

Run by the Flores family, this Lincoln Square restaurant is a find for fans of burritos, tacos and other simple Mexican dishes. Short-order cooks grill the meat, including lean skirt steak and chicken breast, on order before slicing and binding it together with peppers, cheese, onions, lettuce and tomato in a giant flour tortilla. Chips are also fried fresh, salsa verde is hot-hot-hot. Lunch or dinner comes to less than $5 per person unless you order the guacamole, the most expensive item on the menu at $4.25. The interior is worn, rimmed with comfortable booths and strung with sombrero lampshades. It is the food that owner Efrain Flores takes pride in.
