On a quiet block in Prospect Heights, the colorful Taqueria de los Muertos, with its exposed brick walls and obligatory skulls, garners plenty of (warranted) attention. The unpretentious order-at-the-counter-and-grab-a-table setup leaves the focus on the food, the usual suspects—quesadillas, tacos, tostadas, and burritos—offered with an extensive variety of fillings. Not only can you choose from four types of beans, but there are also seven meats (including tongue, and chicken and pork each done two ways) and two vegetarian-friendly options (though you’ll want to avoid the mushy squash). The Super Nachos, smothered in lime-lavished guacamole and layers of cheese, is a meal in itself, and the white-meat-packed Super Burrito Carne Pollo is equally filling. For other non-taco options, the tostada carne asada, while heavy on the cabbage, is flavorful and pairs oddly well with a glass of tangy Jamaican juice, a secret virgin mix that’s both a little sweet and a little sour.Weekend Brunch
