Leftover tortillas, though no longer edible, do make for durable snowshoes and practical canvases on which to write notes for easy under-door passing. Sample a shell before its expiration date with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican cuisine and drinks at North of the Border Mexican Restaurant in Bartlett.
South of the border cuisine crafters at North of the Border strive to shape a menu of fresh, consistently tasty fare cooked to each tongue's specifications. Guac gurus and Scooby sidekicks can unmask the Monster starter, a huge tortilla chock full of cheese, meat, green peppers, onions, tomatoes, and guacamole ($11.99, serves four) or the garden burrito, a cozy cocoon of veggies and rice ($5.99).
Meanwhile, the taco dinner takes taste buds to nosh nirvana with a choice of three hard- or soft-shell tacos stuffed with rice and beans, and trimmed with either American (lettuce, tomato, and cheese) or Mexican (cilantro, onion, and a side of lime) toppings ($6.75). Indecisive imbibers can opt for a combo platter ($7.25 for a choice of two single eats such as the shredded-beef taco and pork tamale) or buy some time by chomping into a cheesecake chimi', which, like a baby's bedding, wraps sweetness in a blanket of crispy tortilla ($3.95). Enjoy the fiesta of flavors inside North of the Border's brick-bedecked building, or take out the tasties to your own abode.
North of the Border Mexican Restaurant
“Best Mexican Restaurant I own!” Matt Waxler quips on his Facebook page, and it’s clear he really does enjoy the food he vends at North of the Border Mexican Restaurant. His menu diversifies burritos with more than the standard meat selections, stuffing in boneless chipotle seasoned wings, stir-fried shrimp, or steak with three kinds of jalapeños, a word which translates to English as “pepper of many guises.” American- and Mexican-style tacos vie for plate space, and strips of skirt steak simmer in a tomato and jalapeño sauce in the Bistek a la Mexicana, Mr. Waxler’s favorite dish.
