We aren’t the fanciest taquería in town. “Hip” isn’t even part of our vocabulario. Flaco’s Tacos just knows good, simple Mexican food: tacos, burritos, tamales, tortas y quesadillas. Nada más. We also know “fresh & homemade”. We don’t take short-cuts. That’s why you can see right into our kitchens. We are preparing everything fresh daily.
The same traditional foods and drinks we have in México, and even in the Little Village and Pilsen neighborhoods right here in Chicago, we bring to you. We’ll even get on our bicicletas and bike it to your home. Then you don’t have to miss a second of your favorite telenovela…Plus we only use green, bio-degradable, or recyclable packaging. That way we are not adding to the land-fill with so much waste. That makes us (and you) muy felíz!

Flaco’s Tacos is more than just an authentic Mexican experience.
I thoroughly enjoyed the food. I went with the al pastor - a personal favorite - and was not disappointed. The meat was nice and juicy, which doesn't always happen with al pastor tacos. And as an added pleasant surprise, the chips and guac were really good.
Amazing authentic mexican food, super fresh ingredients! Get the chips and salsa, homemade chips that are crisp and airy! Red hot salsa is extremely thin and perfect on the chicken tacos! Prices are very reasonable for a Chicago lunch.
The front cashier had a great personality! She was so kind and welcoming. The food was amazing! The atmosphere is also very cute and artsy! The prices are super affordable!
It's a friendly, bustling spot with great food. Their margaritas are amazing (and a steal at ~$5/glass) and they have wonderful salsa as well as tables indoor and out. Ambiance is fun, bright and cheery, and the food comes out very quickly.
Love this place! Food is awesome. Good vibe in a good location. Prices are great and specials are so good, such a value.
Flacos Tacos is one of the best quick good tasting restaurants I've ever had a meal at. Definitely would come back again. Very affordable.
It's a delightful little restaurant with great food and even better drink specials. I definitely anticipate that I will come back here!
Great neighborhood spot and a perfect place for a quick dinner and drink. There is always a taco of the day, the guac is awesome, and the sangria is tasty.
Stumbled upon Flaco's looking for some late night grub. They had some really good pulled pork tamales and tacos! Reasonable prices for some yummy comfort food. Highly recommended!
