This cheerful strip mall storefront does one of the city’s best renditions of the torta ahogada, a zippy, sauce-drowned sandwich indigenous to Guadalajara that will make sense to any Chicagoan who knows her way around a dipped beef. The version here features juicy shredded pork, beans, and red onion packed generously into a crusty roll; the whole is then doused with a thin, brightly acidic tomato salsa, the flavor of which can be amped up with the addition of fiery chile de arbol sauce. The crunchy, bean-filled taco dorado that’s served alongside the signature sandwich is a tasty little touch.
