    Any recommendation for a Taco stand in the Libertyville, Mundelein, and Vernon Hills area?

    I did a search and didn't see anything recent.

    Thanks for the lists. Can you let me know which are your personal top 3 choices?

    I really like Tacos El Rey De Oro in Libertyville. It doesn't blow me away or anything, but it is absolutely above average compared to your standard Chicago taqueria, and a definite place of note when you are looking specifically in the north suburbs.

    The moved this year to a larger space in the same shopping center that houses Bagels By The Book - which makes far and away the best breakfast sandwich I've ever had.

    Thanks. I liked El Rey de Oro. I saw that they had closed, but didn't know that they moved.

    I agree with you on the bagel place, it's VG.

    There is a Monica's in Mundelein, they're my current fave at their Prospect Heights location.

    Thanks. I drove by Monica's. I'm looking to try it within a week or so. I'll post my comments then.

    Finally got around to trying Monica's and El Rey de Oro (in its new location). El Rey was as good as it has always been. Monica's was very good. I just got the steak burrito. Might have to try the Philly one next.

    Thanks to everyone for their comments.

    There was a fire at the Mundelein location earlier today. They’re going to be closed for awhile.
