De Cero Restaurant

This West Loop Mexican spot still shines amid the onslaught on new West Loop restos. The tacos still rock, and the jicama margarita adds the perfect amount of savory to the sweet drink.

De Cero Restaurant

It's not authentic, but the tacos are tasty and fun to share. Skirt steak and shrimp options are particularly tasty.

De Cero Restaurant

De Cero is a great West Loop casual taco spot. Pricey knowing that $2 tacos elsewhere might be better, but you're paying for the atmosphere, location and some pretty good food.

Contemporary taqueria serves upscale Mexican street food in stylish surroundings. – The Scene
Old Mexico meets Randolph Street in this stylish, uncluttered space, where rustic pine furniture and tortilla-colored walls blend comfortably with industrial-metal accents and deep-blue stained floors. West Loop loft dwellers and local business diners fill tables in the main dining room or linger at the bar for a specialty margarita, like peach chamomile or raspberry cilantro. Service is fast and friendly.

The Food
This isn't a typical taco stand--de cero's modern Mexican fare includes upscale options like duck nachos, shrimp fajitas and tacos filled with seared marlin, battered catfish and tomatillo pork. Seviche with rock shrimp and baby scallops is a fresh, zingy start; guacamole is good, chunky and served with warm tortilla chips. Crunchy battered shrimp with avocado crema makes for a taco favorite. Tamales are excellent--moist, fall-apart tender and rolled around chipotle chicken, cilantro pulled pork, or fresh corn. Desserts include a firm, fab flan with ripe berries.

If you like bland food, this place is for you – The items on the menu sounded delicious, too bad none of them had any flavor. Extremely disappointed.

Taquitos – I had heard good things about this place, but am now confident in saying that La Pasadita has nothing to fear. Mexican food is cheap to make, so for 3.50 /taco (single tortilla, mind you) I expected something special. The salsas were very good, the tamales were alright, and the horchata colada was unpleasant. The room could use some help too, it's sort of bare and oppressive at the same time. Not bad, but there are both upscale and downscale Mexican restaurants here in Chicago that do it better.
