The name evokes unknown taco stands and birreria shacks, so it took a second to get acclimated to this contemporary Edgewater restaurant. But we soon settled in: Just-fried chips and freshly-made salsa are as nice a welcome as anybody can ask for. And with seven salsas available, you can spend your whole evening snacking and drinking margaritas. But then you’d miss out on the pillowy tamales stuffed with chicken and the succulent skirt steak. Never fear: This “little” café is actually a quickly growing operation (the first location is in Evanston), so you should have plenty of opportunities to come back for what you missed.

Definite tell a solid neighborhood spot, with a relaxed atmosphere. However, the decor is still quite chic for the price point. Both the food and the drinks are very fairly priced. I'm a big fan of their simple Sunday morning brunch, which included quesadillas, guacamole, chicken, etc.
