If you want authentic Mexican food, check out this place! Delicious! They make their own flour and corn tortillas the same way my mom makes them at home! I'll be coming back for sure!!
Decent tacos but crazy expensive to me. The steak taco was tasty but what's more amazing to me are the different salsas, ranging from tasty, not spicy at all, to crazy lip-burning. And I love some super spicy salsas. I have heard great things about their giant burritos and I think that's the way to go here, especially because you get more of your money's worth.
Your true taqueria, legit tacos cooked by legit Mexican cooks! I was recommended here by a local Chicago native and it was worth the drive from the city. My favorite are the steak tacos. Great steak tacos! Steak has great flavor and they make their tortillas on site, you can't beat that.

Anthony’s Pizzeria

Reviews:
We ordered a stuffed pizza (sausage and garlic) and baked cavatelli. The current picture for Anthony's does not do it justice. I hate to admit it but even when I was deciding on which pizza place to try out, I almost, ALMOST skipped this place because the photos weren't eye popping enough. Let me assure you that if the picture was in 3-D and a scratch and sniff, everyone would go here. Or you could just take my word for it. The 6 pounds of cheese, huge slices of garlic and chunks of sausage was as perfect as it could get already. But the crust was a whole other eating experience. Random fact about Lily F. No matter how awesome a pizza is, I typically do not eat the crust. I know...But most of the time it's like eating pure bread where all I really want is more cheese and toppings. The crust on this bad boy is a little bit crispy, crunchy, chewy, flaky with layers like a biscuit somehow and has residual sauce from the non-crust side so you're not just eating mouthfuls of dry bread. I don't know how else to explain it other than I ate every piece of it. The cavatelli (first time to have it) was like a giant gnocchi drenched with sauce and more cheese, and was worth the price. I will definitely be a repeat customer for Anthony's as I must try their other pizzas. Total price for a small stuffed pizza and the pasta was about 28 bucks.
Anthony's is just your typical old school Chicago "mom/pop" shop where the owner is in the back making the food and his wife is the one up front answering the phones. All Anthony's consists of is a kitchen, counter, a couple of tables for folks to wait and a heck of a pizza! Ordered a couple of thin crust pizzas and we weren't disappointed. Their crust is very thin and very crisp. The cheese they use is real, and when I say real I mean freshly grated 100% mozzarella. The sausage tastes homemade and has a very distinct flavor and the rest of the toppings are fresh, and not out of a can Prices are reasonable and definitely a must try!
A Northlake staple. Only 2 pizza places had stood the "taste" of time. Perry's and Anthony's. There's a reason these places still exist! Good, quality ingredients makes ALL the difference. Family owned, operated and quality assured. Years and years ago they had a restaurant and now it's a delivery/take-out place. That's OK. I'm good as long as I get my pizza! For birthdays I usually order buffalo size pizza. It's a gigantic rectangle that serves at least 10 beasts during football season! lol. Ah... memories. My favorite is ricotta, sausage and mushroom. SOOOOO delicious- think I need pizza tonight!

Ordered from there twice this week. The sandwich and ribs were good.
You just can never go wrong with Portillos! Chardogs, cheese fries, Cheesey Beef sandwich, Yum-O : ) Onion rings and top it off with some great cold drinks! Thank you for saving me from my hunger pains!!
I want to slap Portillo's in the face because it is so good! What do you want? A salad, they have it. What about chicken sandwich on a croissant? Yup! How about an Italian beef? You know it. So delicious. However, their pinnacle of delicious is the chocolate cake. That, my dear, is the best dessert you will ever eat for under $3. Whether you are a cake lover or not, this is the treat you must try. I am actually having a love affair with this cake. I make excuses to go to Portillo's for this cake. Sure the beef is great, the chicken sandwich is great, the salads are great but the cake, the cake...it is pure phenomenal. WOW! Explosion in my mouth! I would skip the fries. They are crinkle cut from a bag. Nothing impressive, nothing worth playing for. Skip those calories and get the cake.

It was new and I wanted to try it bc I had heard good things. Yuck! Don't waste your time or money.
New to the area so I tried this place because of Yelp and huge disappointment.... Just to keep it short... I ordered sopes and the meat was cold... steak had no flavor and the pork tasted ok...
Great prices and food is great! The carne asada is juicy and not greasy like a lot of places are. I think I've tried everything on their menu and it's all good. Sopes, tacos, gorditas, tortas.....they used to serve huaraches but I don't know why they stopped :-( Their salsas are very good too, I recommend their salsa verde. It's a Taqueria not a restaurant so don't expect fancy decor. But their service is great. You won't find anything better in a 5 mile radius.

good food.
This is a small restaurant in a less than inviting small shopping strip. Don't let this throw you off. The food was fantastic! I heard about this place from some co-workers and tagged along the next time the group went out. The table shared a shrimp and beer sauce appetizer and a ceviche plate. The chips and salsa were also good, but the default table salsa was hotter than you get at a chain. This might have been due to the fact that my table-mates were regulars, but it was still great stuff. I had steak strips covered in a white cheese. It was very good, and the rice and beans were also very tasty. The tortillas appeared to be hand made and were very tasty. I have found that a place which can get the rice and beans correct can usually do the rest of it well. I also enjoyed my horchata, which was not watered down but very creamy. The rest of the food delivered to the table also looked fantastic and there were no complaints out of a table of six guys. The place is small with a handful of tables, but they do a good job with the small space. It is a bit pricey for the area, but everything was well done and worth the price. Highly recommended.
I was just recently introduced to this restaurant and I am a FAN. Shrimp cocktail was fresh and tasty but my favorite is the $20 steak and lobster plate with rice and salad.. For the price you cant beat that.. Give it a try.
