Taqueria La Oaxaquena

3382 N. Milwaukee Ave.
Chicago , IL , United States
(773) 545-8585

Marked by a burgundy awning and neon beer signs on the outside, this Irving Park eatery specializes in Mexican fare from the southern state of Oaxaca. Inside, hanging plants and plastic tablecloths emphasis the casualness of Taqueria La Oaxaqueña. Despite the unimpressive décor, the restaurant’s authentic cuisine includes what some consider to be the best tortas in Chicago. Several menu items are topped with the popular chocolate-inflected mole sauce, and for dessert, the tres leches cake is a diner favorite.
