We are in the town for a Navy boot camp graduation and found this gem. It has great authentic Mexican food. The salsa they make is excellent. My husband got a breakfast burrito, and I got two tacos. All of it was great!

I visited Toluca on Washington at 1pm on a Saturday and it was PACKED. No parking, screaming children running wild... The food was well worth it. We were immediately brought chips and four different salsas, my favorites were the green salsa (cilantro, lime, tomatillos) and...More

As far as taquerias go (and there are plenty to choose from in Waukegan), Toluca is the best due to its extensive menu (including plenty of vegetarian options), quick service and ambience/live entertainment. My husband always gets the burrito al pastor, and I have tried...More
