It’s hard not to be just a little impressed by a 20 inch quesadilla. And that’s exactly what you’ll find at this casual Mexican restaurant in Albany Park. While part of the fun is tackling a giant griddled corn tortilla full of cheese, the namesake machetes (called such because they look like a sword) are actually delicious. Each one comes with at least two toppings, and everything from chicharron with salsa verde to squash blossom is delicious. But they also have smaller junior and baby machetes if the full-grown, adult machete feels like too much. Make sure to also stock up on salsas and fresh garnishes at their sauce bar.
