FLACO’s TACOS :(- 1116-1120 West Granville Ave., Edgewater, Chicago, (773) 262-8226, flacostacosonline.com
Q-tips say: Mrs. Q says: What? You have never gone to Flaco’s Tacos in Edgewater??? It started with the Mr. wanted Nachos. Since Waterfront Cafe does not have them any more and we decided to try this place. Well, DON’T GO TO Flaco’s Tacos!!! It is the worst Taco food we have ever had! The place has no ambiance, it is a dump, and the service was minimal. I guess it is still in business because the Loyola College students frequent this place. They have specials everyday including on their Margaritas, which were the worst we have ever had. I had the Flautas (4 corn tortillas filled with chicken, fried golden,?? (fried to a crisp – yuck) and topped with fresh lettuce, tomato, Chihuahua cheese, sour cream & homemade guacamole. Mexican rice & refried beans on the side – not fried golden it was really well done, yuck!) and the Mr. decided on a taco instead of nachos. It was so bad that I did not want to eat it nor take it home or give it to anyone including animals.
So save yourself, and don’t go there. Taco Bell is a thousand times better that Flaco’s Tacos. When we arrived the music was blaring and the building shook. I did ask them to turn it down and they did. They also have an outside seating area which is next to the elevated trains that make the place vibrate. DON’T GO to Flaco’s Tacos. You have been warned.
