OK, outside of Topo, Frontera, XOCO, and Salpicon, where can I find relatively decent Mexican food and good margaritas in Chicago?

    Ponchos Pistoles on 31st and Union in Bridgeport/South Side. Best Margaritas and good food, not expensive.

        Thanks Weinstein, but I liked That Little... when it was at it's original location before moving, on Sherman. More rustic setting, better food.

          I agree. It went more mainstream and became more run-of-the-mill.
