El Rincon Azteca
Tacos, family-style, in Bucktown

Chicago

Dealing with in-laws can be difficult, and, judging by Everybody Loves Raymond's syndication schedule, highly lucrative, which could explain why two sisters-in-law decided to open El Rincon Azteca: a sunny storefront transforming the former Crepe Crave with Mexican folk art, bubbling fountains, and prickly cacti.

Their tacos come in nine different flavors, from pineapple-studded al pastor, to beef tongue, to crisped-up pork skin, while deep-fried taquitos are stuffed with potatoes, and house specialty quesadillas are double-stuffed with marinated pork and called "Gringas", even though gringos are notoriously more into porking. Heftier appetites can hit the Parrillada Azteca, a six-person platter piled with grilled veggies & meats (carne asada, chorizo, etc.), and anyone whose hunger is fueled by last night's booze will find comfort in steak-packed chilaquiles, or steaming bowls of pozole and menudo, known to take the edge off of Livin' La Vida Loca.

And for thirst-quenching there's a juice bar up front, where you can score the "Jugo Energetico", a blend of oranges, carrots, tomatoes, celery, and beets -- hey, just because you like vegetables less than in-laws doesn't mean they can't make some money.
