One of the better Mexican food places around the Glenview/ Northbrook area. Specializes in Tzinga (seasoned meats, with a spicy flare) selections. Affordable prices, quick eats, fresh ingredients.

NEVER AGAIN. THEY SIMPLY DON'T CARE. I was a regular, or semi-regular, until now. These people have no clue what customer service means. Today I came for lunch. Ordered to eat in. There were open tables when I ordered but seconds later, all the tables...More

Whether or not you enjoy the taste of something is usually subjective so please keep in mind this is my personal experience. Everybody loves La Taquiza but I find it very disappointing. The one standout is the extremely friendly service. Their kindness makes me feel...More

La Taquiza is authentic Mexican at its finest! Tortas and Burrito's are my family's favorites -- fresh ingredients, generous portions at a fair price. The interior is authentic South-of-the-Border decor!!

Delicious, well prepared tacos. Mediocre tamales....not enough filling, too much dough. Very friendly counter staff. Clean. It was crowded at lunch time, so going at 11:30 or after 1 pm is probably a good idea.
