Mexican food

Did you know that Mexican cuisine has both Caribbean and French influences?

The cuisine varies between Mexico’s different regions, and chile peppers are one of the most popular ingredients.

If you would like to enjoy a delicious Mexican dish, visit one of the following restaurants that serve beef tacos, chicken enchiladas, and so much more:

Mago Grill & Cantina

At the Mago Grill, guests enjoy a celebration of Mexican heritage. It’s owned by award-winning chefs Ric Munoz and Juan Gonzalez, and they prepare a menu full of authentic favorites made from old family recipes. The staff always offers attentive service, and the cozy dining room is where many locals gather to enjoy a lively evening with family and friends. The menu includes chile relleno, ropa vieja, and salsa verde enchiladas.

Uncle Julio’s

Nestled in nearby Lombard, Uncle Julio’s has welcomed hungry diners since 2003. The restaurant is committed to offering made-from-scratch dishes, and it’s famous for a drink called The Swirl: a delicious blend of frozen margarita and house-made sangria. The vibrant dining area is where memories are made, and the friendly servers often know regulars by name. Dishes include chicken tacos, Juarez fajitas, and cheese & onion enchiladas, and the sopapillas for dessert are not to be missed.


Chuy’s began from humble beginnings in an old Texas barbecue joint, and now has several locations across the country. Its lively atmosphere comes complete with hand-carved fish hanging overhead, and everyone who walks through the doors is treated like family. The chefs prepare recipes from across New Mexico and Mexican border towns, and meals include seasoned ground sirloin burritos, vegetarian soft tacos, and chicken flautas.

In addition to these Mexican restaurants, Marq on Main is also near popular shops and fun cultural attractions. If you are thinking about calling our community home, please contact us. Our friendly leasing agents would love to give you a tour.
