Gurnee is inundated with chain restaurants. This locally owned and independent restaurant is a breath of fresh air. The owners are present, working, and talking to customers. The food is fast, delicious, and a unique take on Latin American foods. I come here often!

Drove to Momcorn due to the Trip Advisor recommendations. It was easy to find, very clean, and good service. The food was okay. It wasn't as good as I hoped with all of the reviews, but it wasn't bad. Better than typical Mexican. Fresh food.

I ordered open tacos with al Pastor, which is meat made in the schwarma style. The food was wonderful - we ate there twice. I recommend it.
