Our number one Mexican Restaurant in the Chicago Suburbs. We've been eating here since we moved to Palatine 20 years ago. They do Mexican right. The tamales are hand made daily and delicious. The guacamole is out of sight great! My husband can even order goat and it is melt in your mouth yummy. The Birraia sauce it's cooked in... More

I first encountered Mexico Uno about 22 years ago. It is a small, family owned and operated restaurant. If you are looking for authentic Mexican cooking in a casual atmosphere, look no further. This is the place! Everything is made fresh, using high quality ingredients. Make no mistake, this is not Tex-Mex cuisine, with it's firey hot, over spiced dishes.... More

Food seemed bland for Mexican food to me. Rice and beans were out in same side of container so I was given 1/2 of what I normally received at other places for take out. Prices are average. Restaurant was clean from what i could see as a walk in. Not sure if I would order again.

Everything is fresh and homemade. The staff are very friendly too. Don't skip the quacamole! The variety of salsas certainly help as well.

Just the other day someone asked me to recommend a good, authentic, Mexican restaurant in this area. I drew a blank. Then, a good friend asked me to meet him for lunch at this Mexican place in downtown Palatine. When I got there I waited about ten minutes for a table. Every spot was full. When I was seated, the...

We've lived in the area over 20 years, and passed by many times without venturing in. (The storefront looks much more like a tavern than a restaurant.) With other local sports bars and casual eateries being more crowded than usual on a Friday night since the Cubs are in the World Series, we decided to give Mexico Uno a try,... More

Oh yeah, this is the place for Mexican Food. Been a regular for over 19 years and I've never had a bad meal. Fresh made tamales, great guacamole, terrific big meal in a bowl soups. Great tasting beans and rice and every entree is a winner. While the standard chicken, beef and pork dishes are there you can also get... More

This is the best Mexican restaurant anywhere around Palatine for sure. The service is always warm and friendly and the food is just terrific. And the restaurant is surrounded by some of the best nightlife in Palatine.

This place is kind of hard to find but we eventually got there. When you walk in it is best described as a dive. You are looked at by everyone when you walk in because the place is really small and it feels a little uncomfortable. The waitress I think must be one of the owners of the place. She... More
