Known For

Mexican

Tacos de canasta, or basket tacos, which are steamed and popular all over Mexico, are the name of the game at this unassuming Brighton Park joint. They come served in a rustic tray with salsas and sides, which matches the few wooden picnic tables they use for seating -- and that are usually full. Once you taste the tacos stuffed with ingredients like refried beans, chicharron prensado, and pierna de puerco, you'll understand why. Guapo's also got some of the best tamales in the city, which you'll want to cut with a refreshing agua fresca.
