The Hackney’s crew opened this Mexican sibling to cater to the Columbia students and sprinkling of office workers in Printers Row. The former should be happy with the low prices and accessible gringo fare like quesadillas and burritos, while the latter can unwind over lunch with a cold cerveza. A handful of fillings can be had in tacos, tortas or burritos, and while the chicken and steak were consistently dry, the al pastor fared better, nice and juicy with a bit of kick. Specials, like a recent chicken posole, help set the place apart from Mexichains.

One of the better Mexican joints in the area without going over to Pilsen but not very authentic cuisine. The menu is large and offers tacos, burritos and tortas. I find the meat to be seasoned well but the tortillas, tortilla chips and breads are not very good. The drinks are reasonably priced and it's one of the few places to find Margaritas in the area.
