Real Deal – Been coming here for years! Consistant great Mexican food. Same quality since they started out on Lill & Lincoln Ave. when they could only seat about a dozen people. The nachos taste as good as they did over 20 years ago. These folks have been in business for a long time because they know how to do great food. Yes, I do go to others, but, when we want to get something that we know we can count we are back here. There is a reason you see many Mexican people having dinner here. If you have to BYOB, a Corona would be good, the food is hardy so you don't want a heavy beer. If you're here after a night of drinking, isn't everyone a bit scary. Be happy these folks are open, most close up to avoid these crowds.
late night love – i love you el presidente. your gorditas are delicious... especially at 3:00am
User review by bassgrrrl777 – Muy bien, y muy caliente!!! This is some of the best Mexican food you can get in Chicago. And you HAVE to get something with mole sauce on it. They have great mole sauce!!! I think it's funny they ask if the restaurant is romantic... any restaurant can be romantic if have the right company! :)
User review by turkeylove – Locals call this place El Presapukay. It can be a little scary late-night.
Reliable Mexican food is served all hours of the day and night to spice-seeking diners. – In Short
Open 24 hours, seven days a week, including holidays, this place draws a diverse neighborhood clientele. It's a bright, colorful space, with plenty of Diego Rivera artwork on the walls. The food is basic Mexican--tacos, burritos, enchiladas and the like. For a little of everything, get the El Presidente Special--tamale, tostada, taco, enchilada, rice, beans and guacamole. Have a hangover? The menudo is a traditional cure, packed with tripe and gently spiced.
