Time Out says

At this tiny Pilsen storefront, regulars get special treatment (a.k.a. refried beans, not always on offer), newcomers just get blank stares, and everybody gets the carnitas. Ordered by the pound, the juicy pork is served to you on a platter with nothing but a side of corn tortillas and a spicy salsa verde so that you can concoct your own tacos. Not leaving any part of the pig to waste, the limited menu also includes fresh, warm, delicious chicharrones.

Hands down the best location for carnitas in Chicago. This is a lovely family owned spot with great food and service. It's snug and there is usually a line but it's definitely well worth the wait. They also have fantastic menudo & chicharrones!
