I still have yet to find a real "authentic" Mexican restaurant that uses chihuahua cheese, makes their own refried beans, chips, mole, flan, etc, and that is reasonable cost. Oh, one that also has that Mom and Pop home atmosphere like one I used to know in Wood Dale called El Niagara. They were they best until they retired 8 years ago.

The closest to get authentic Mexican is a little family-owned place called Taco Mex on Essington just south of Caton Farm. All of the contestants above indeed do have good food, but I'll echo that they're not authentic.

If Taco Mex is the one by Dairy Queen, then yes I totally agree! They have the authentic mole like my mom and dad's restaurant. Besides that one, La Mex is the best one. Both are in Joliet. Got to go to the heart of it. ;)
