"Homemade" is a word you'll see often on the menu at Torta's Tacos. It appears alongside the names of dips and sauces including guacamole, habanero salsa, and pico de gallo. Those items become the building blocks for the restaurant's cuisine, which combines Mexican staples with generous helpings of customer customization. Cooks fill burritos and tacos with meat or veggies, depending on your preference, then they add just the right amount of rice, beans, and other fixings. Another tool in their culinary arsenal: melted cheese, which adds the final gooey flourish to the fajitas and enchiladas.
With these and other dishes, Torta's Tacos brings a bit of Mexico to Chicago's Near North Side. Their cozy shop has a few tables for dine-in service, though many customers prefer to carry out their orders, never breaking eye contact with their hungry friends outside in the car.
