Mexican food near Western and Armitage

  • k

What is the best Mexican food near the Western and Armitage intersection? There are several within a 1/2 mile radius.

I would be particularly interested in a good tortilla soup and/or steak torta.

Many thanks.

  1. Hmm that brings back memories. Used to live right in in that area. Anyhoo. Las Asadas is probably the best of all those little places. It's a block or 2 north on Western from the Western and Armitage intersecton. Great grilled meats.

      Las Asadas is great, but note that it's not a sit-down restaurant like the others in the area. The small building is 90% kitchen with a couple of counters, similar to a small, enclosed hotdog stand.
