Here are just some of the places you can find the best Mexican fare in the area, from carne asada tacos with corn tortillas to refried beans to chiles rellenos, so check them out and contact us to let us know your suggestions too!


Totopos is a small spot in a strip mall serving up delicious Mexican cuisine. Due to its small interior, ordering to-go is the best way to enjoy the food here. Are open at 10 am Mon-Sat so you can even order from the breakfast menu for classics like huevos rancheros. There is an entire vegetarian menu, with meat substitutes like soy chorizo so you don't have to miss out on the flavors you love.

El Callejon

El Callejon is a local favorite, with aesthetic and dishes inspired by the alleyways and streets of Mexico City, where locals walk every day to get food. Take advantage of happy hour 2pm-5pm Monday -Thursday, when you can get a free taco when you buy a large drink! You can build your own burrito, get the pork tamales, or even enjoy the fried ice cream for dessert!

Fat Rosie's Taco and Tequila Bar

Located right by downtown Naperville, Fat Rosie's Taco and Tequila Bar has amazing drinks and fourteen types of tequila, as well as amazing food like the camarones tacos (grilled shrimp). The atmosphere is a little more modern and upscale than fast Mexican food places, so bring your friends for a fun night out or a special occasion.

Taco Dále

Formerly called Taco Diner, Taco Dale is a great casual place right on Route 59 to get a filling lunch or dinner, with tasty dishes like the Torta Cubana and chef-recommended fish tacos. The staff are friendly and even remember regulars by name! If you aren't near Naperville, you can also try one of their locations in Romeoville, Bolingbrook, Lisle, or Aurora.
