Simple is better for tacos and burritos here - the carne asada is so well-marinated and cooked it only needs cilantro/onion, crema and cheese. Guacamole, beans, corn quesadillas - those go on the side!

The best dive in the city – Best taco, best salsa in the whole wide world.

I have been going there since 1980's and they

have expanded and the food is still the best.

I mean you can not top this place!

If there were to be a contest for best tacos anywhere

this place will for sure win!

Best Mexican Food – It's hard to find a better mexican food restuarant that La Pasadita anywhere. I probably eat there 2 times a week. Sooooo good. I don't know how they make something as basic as a steak taco taste like magic :)

My only complaint is that sometimes it takes a while to get your food after you order. Nothing ridiculous but I feel that it should be a little faster.

Great Food, Horrible Service!!! – Yes! The tacos and burritos are delicious and addictive, but the level of service for a well established restaurant is super low!! The staff does not prepare your food your way, they prepare how they feel it's right. You ask for light onions and cilantro and you get about a quarter pound of onions and cilantro. If you return your food, they get mad. DO NOT GO TO THEIR "EXPRESS" LOCATIONS!!!! These locations always run out on things, like limes, horchata and they never have lemonade!!! They are NOT close to being good in taste. Good taste is located in the original locations on ASHLAND AVE!!!! It's true what the other guy mentioned in his review... They are getting cocky with the all the attention they are getting. Overall, order your food and get out. The taste you'll love but the service you'll hate... They only get two stars because of the good tasting food but if it wasn't for that, they would not get any stars.

Fatty Burritos – For the most part, their steamed beef burritos are awesome. Lately though, quality has slipped. I don't know if they are getting cocky because of the increasing awareness or what but they need to change their ways. The meat used to be great. But more often then not the meat is very fatty or greasy. I had one burrito recently with so much fat, I through it away. Unfortunately it was a to go order so I couldn't send it back. I have tried to reach the owner and discuss the quality issue but he is too hard to get hold of. When the meat is good, it will be the best burrito you will ever have. Let's hope they get the message. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

THE ABSOLUTE BEST... What a burrito is supposed to taste like! – If you're looking for ambiance, forget it, just good food here. Don't miss this spot if you're passing through the city. I was turned on to them by a 'chef' on our way to Wrigley Field. Fabulous! It's hard to find an authentic Mexican spot that hasn't compromised by going 'white' on us. Hope they never change! It's no wonder they have three restaurants in one block!

Below Avg. Steak Tacos & Burritos. Steak Tacos were chewey, not tasty or well-seasoned, and oily. – Sorry, but I must strongly disagree with all those folks that think this place has the best (steak) tacos & burritos. Found the steak meat to be tough/chewey and not particularly tasty or well-seasoned. Tacos were also very greasy, and too little 'filling' of onions and cilantro. Also, we paid the extra 50cents for gaucamole, and there was barely a quarter-teaspoon if that on any of the Tacos. And, dissappointed there was no option to add real Avocado (which is my preference). The usual free Tortilla Chips were also not very well-made or tasty, and the 3 sauces to go with only so-so. The only positive note I'd make is that it is BYOB, so you can definately eat (& drink) on the cheap. But, for my money (and tastebuds), TACALITLAN beats this place hands down. (See my review of Tacalitlan).
