Best Carne Asada - 2010
Tecate Mexican Restaurant
From the outside, the place doesn't look like much — just a typical near-Northwest Side Mexican joint that has just about evolved from a taqueria into a full-fledged restaurant. And once you are inside, you will see that there are few frills and the prices are still nice. But one bite of Tecate's carne asada will melt your soul. Wrapped in a tortilla with a dollop of guacamole and a sprinkle of pico, this perfectly marinated, charred just so and delectably juicy beef will renew your faith in a dish that is too often served up tough and overly chewy. Wash it down with a namesake beer and enjoy your ascent into el cielo.
