Chowdown Showdown is back, and this time with a focus on Mexican food.

Fajitas, tacos, burritos, quesadillas? We’re on a mission to determine which Buffalo Grove restaurant is best when it comes to Mexican cuisine. 

Nominate the restaurant that you think serves the best Mexican food by posting a comment in the box below. Nominations will also be accepted via our Facebook and Twitter accounts.

The three most popular submissions received by 5 p.m. Tuesday will be posted as a poll Wednesday morning. The restaurant that receives the most votes in the poll will be named the Chowdown Showdown Mexican Food Champion.

MY kitchen.. but since I am not a restaurant, i pick Mi Mexico - it is the closest to how my grandmother used to cook

Tacos el Norte. The one in Buffalo Grove is now located across from Lowe's in Libertyville. They have the best chicken flautas, enchiladas, and tacos--great place to go for a nice meal. Grande Jake's is a close second, but my vote is still for Tacos el Norte.

Grande Jakes. Love everything there, especially the steak fajitas.

But, if "one in Buffalo Grove is now located across from Lowe's in Libertyville", then it's not in BG anymore...

Grande Jakes - no doubt. Always good fresh food and I love how involved they are in the community with supporting the schools and BG Days. Great food, good people!:)
