I check it out whenever you post. I need to hit up these locations.

Might I suggest these two establishments if you have not already:

El Paraiso
314 S McLean Blvd, Elgin

and

Cilantro Taco Grill
512 Waverly Dr, Elgin

Burrito Parrilla Mexicana - Lombard
2770 S Highland Ave #101, Lombard, IL 60148

Taco Grill & Salsa Bar
111 W Ogden Ave, Westmont, IL 60559

If you haven't tried both of those, delicious! Parrilla is very "clean" non-greasy mexican food, the taco grill salsa bar is more your greasy mexican.

I like the establishments that look seedy. If I walk in and the look on their faces is "why is this white guy here", thats where I want to eat.

I always tell my buddies that when looking for good Mexican food the easiest way to know if you are at a good place is judging by the people serving you and the people eating there, if you have a little trouble communicating your order and the people eating there are mostly Mexican you have arrived at the right place lol

My buddies grandpa owns that place. I always knew it was good, but didn't realize it was THAT good in comparison to other places in the area.

you need to add categories and tags. like categories for locations and tags for ratings or something. let's say you did this for a year, and traveled all over, you'd basically have this never ending list of tacos that like nobody would use because they could not use it.

if you had 100 taco joints on here and i was like ooh which ones were near me? or even in IL? there's no way for me to find out about it other than reading all of your posts. what if i was wondering what your favorites were, which taco joints got 5 stars? no idea.

you need to be able to address these questions. then build your taco repository

Ill juice it up as I have free time. Itll be slick. But do appreciate the feedback. Gotta have content to fill it with first. Do you think by region would be easier or by city?

if you do it now 1 by 1 it's easier - else you'll have to revisit 30 articles in the future and do it which is a much bigger pain.

oh and region/city - guess it depends what you are going for. is it only chicagoland? you can have subcategories too so you can do IL then lake county or il, lake county, libertyville, etc.

Id break it up by areas then towns. That way someone wants to do by area or town they have a choice.

Like this example below.

Wicker Park
lincoln park
Nwburbs
- roselle
- palatine
west suburbs
- elgin
- aurora
- st charles
