Los Comales is a family-run taqueria that’s been in Pilsen for more than three decades. It’s been so popular that there are two other locations in the city (in Little Village and Logan Square) plus a few in the suburbs. In other words, Los Comales is ostensibly a mini-chain. Yes, there’s a waitress that will take your order and deliver your food, but the fluorescent lighting, furniture, and menu displayed over the takeout register makes the whole place feel like a repurposed McDonald’s. And while some of the food may seem like it belongs at a fast food spot (see: steak torta with too much mayo and shredded iceberg lettuce), the tacos, horchata, and big tubs of giardiniera on each table definitely don’t. The tortillas here are light and small, and doubled up to withstand the filling. Our favorite is the al pastor, and everything else is hit-or-miss.
