Hello Tacos de cero, Chicago, IL

Hello Tacos de cero Restaurant Review

: There is an invitingly casual feel about this place, from the bare-top tables to the ranchero chairs, and that fits right in with the reasonable prices. Furthering the theme, a large portion of the menu is devoted to classic and modernized tacos, from pulled pork to spicy chorizo and even sage fried chicken. Check out the small plates, though, and you will have a better idea of what (creatively) is going on here. We like the taquitos dorados filled with chicken barbacoa and torta sliders with chipotle sauce soaked meatball, for one. But if small plates are, well, too small, there are options like a sizable carne asada with pickled jalapeƱo, balsamic glaze, bacon-mashed pinto beans, rice and tortillas. And that is one fine-tasting poblano-mole sauce that smothers a grilled half chicken. Desserts --- the rubbery flan in particular --- are a letdown. The trio of sorbets is a better choice. For the best bargain, come during lunch, when the restaurant turns out a midday fiesta.
