Brightly painted walls, vivid paintings of Mexican life, and flavorful margaritas lend Las Palmas' numerous locations a relaxed, distinctly "fiesta" vibe. As guests slowly unwind with friends, family, or Twister champions over ice-cold Mexican beers and cocktails, the chefs prepare fajitas, enchiladas, and tacos alongside plates of charbroiled meats and seafood. They also whip up vegetarian-friendly options, such as the signature guacamole and enchiladas banana, which they stuff with fried bananas and smother in mole sauce and melted cheese.

CiNe couldn't be planted more firmly in the heart of Hinsdale. Standing right across from the Metra station, it fills what used to be the Hinsdale Theater, a movie house built in 1925 when everyone still communicated via title card, and Renaissance Revival architectural features including the custom molding and brickwork remain.

The starring attraction, however, is something a little different for the neighborhood: contemporary takes on taqueria cuisine and other shareable Latin bites, including ceviches. The chefs fill the menu with house-made tamales, fajitas, and a yogurt-enhanced guacamole that "creates a symphony of Latin flavors," according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Tacos are carefully composed, including a veggie version filled with chipotle-spiced potato croquettes and roasted corn relish.

Even with all the historical accents, the dining room exudes a thoroughly modern vibe. Bright orange glass orbs dangle around the massive palm tree sculpture dominating the center of the dining room, and flat-screen TVs light up a few of the walls.
