Chorizo, potato and egg, and Steak and egg breakfast tacos at Los Olivos.

Tucked away in the Little Village is a tiny taqueria serving some of the best tacos in the city, breakfast or otherwise. The morning menu has numerous choices, but the standout (and superb hangover cure) is the huevos con chorizo ($8.50). Chorizo, eggs and potatoes are cooked to order on the flat-top grill and scrambled together. For vegetarians, the huevos con nopales ($8) are not to be missed, with eggs and tender sautéed cactus. Both are served alongside rice and beans, so you can heap the mixture into fresh, warm corn tortillas and douse them in salsa.

Los Olivos is the only place in Chicago to get a authentic Mexican meal estilo Zacatecano. Los Olivos was featured on Chicago's Best for their burritos but honestly anything you get here is amazing, from the burritos to the vegetarian tacos. ***Side-Note I once traded a vegetarian taco for a custom star wars embroidery that would of cost me like $15 -$30 if I would had just paid for it... these tacos are that good*** So next time you're in the little village area stop by Los olvios and feed your soul!
