The haze of smoke in this Mexican restaurant tells you there's no kidding about the mesquite. There’s juicy, spicy chicken and steak cooking over live fire all day long. The location (a couple of miles East of Midway Airport) may be a hike for most of Chicago, but go for the steak, then take a chicken or two along with some handmade tortillas to-go, and you’ll be fed happily for most of the week.
