behind you, don't wait up.
You guys don't even know...
Mr. Taco is the quintessential dirty Mexican joint. under the train tracks, cash only, secret menu for locals, personal safety not guaranteed after 11pm.

I miss it.

I used to get taken to a fried fish sandwiches joint in Washington DC like that.

Dude, by 11pm might be a stretch in Cicero.
Reminds me of when my dad wanted to show me some of the blues joints he used to play at in the 70’s.

dude, I grew up 2 blocks from Mr. Taco. The neighborhood isn't scary when it's your neighborhood.
but yea, lots of sketchy, intoxicated people (and folks!) after dark.
Not that I get to Chicago all that often anymore but a quick google, that place looks dank. When my sister was going to U of C we would wander around late at night to some pretty interesting places. Probably didn’t put our own safety first but I was never mugged or felt threatened.

Just put a little more thought into it. Lord that was 20 years ago. Shit.

I had a college roommate from Cicero... was Mr. Taco the place that would get shut down occasionally for questionable meat content in the burritos? :D

That was Fatburger on La Cienega in Los Angeles in the late 70s. At night there were 8-10 big brothas in black jackets with Security in big yellow letters on the back all carrying pistol grip pump action 12ga shotguns in the parking lot. I got really weird there on weekends after the bars closed
