Restaurant details
Reviewed 1 August 2017

After checking into our room in Libertyville and a flight from Northern California via San Diego, we were starved! We drove the avenue and the first place was short-handed and closed just as we drove up. Then we spotted Tacos El Rey de Oro!

They were open for our California time and the service was fast and food filling! Needless to say, the food was totally fine for our California tastes here in the midwest and a good value!

Coming from South Florida you'd think we'd have plenty of Mexican food. You'd be wrong. (We have Caribbean instead. Love it, but it's not the same at all.)
So when in the Chicago area we seek out good, little mom-and-pop Mexican restaurants.
If you want a really good, really cheap taco place just like you could afford in college - this is it!
I recommend the pork or steak tacos done up with chopped onion and jalapeño.
Their rice and beans is also highly authentic and scratches that Mexican Food Itch we all get.
Red sauce - good!
Green sauce - too mild.
Chips and salsa are just like you want them, too.

My family and I stopped here straight from the airport. The staff is efficient and friendly. The menu is extensive and offers a large number of different dishes. The combinations include the perfect variety of staples (taco, tamale, chile relleno). Highly recommended place to eat!

We enjoy coming here as a family. While they don't have the edgy or creative dishes the burritos have always been solid. Chips, salsa and guac really good. Atmosphere is simple and a bit throw back. Cool little place that locals frequent.
