Tacos, tostadas, margaritas, olé! Spicy food and bebidas from south of the border are going to be happily imbibed as anyone seeking a reason to eat, drink and be merry celebrates Cinco de Mayo.

Who would guess that a victory by the Mexican Militia over the French at the Battle of Puebla would turn into such a huge holiday in the United States. Cinco de Mayo has grown into a drinking holiday in the states, thanks in part to marketing from alcohol companies. In Mexico, it’s not really much celebrated.  

But, who cares about that.

Should include Bolingbrook, because the best Mexican in the area is at the Promenade, Mago Grill and Cantina.

Taco Bell? Really? Best Mexican restaurant? Who did this list? Putting Taco Bell on this list is hilarious. The best Mexican food in anywhere around Chicago is in Pilsen, period! Beyond that there are some good Mexican restaurants in the burbs but TB is NOT one of them. Get real.

Qdoba is great! The food is really good, the place is clean, a great place to have lunch with friends and Tina and her crew are friendly and professional!

The list just uses Yelp! ratings, and is restricted to just the towns of Darien and Woodridge. I'm sure there's a ton of great Mexican around!
