About Us

If you’re searching for incredible Mexican tastes, Prime Tacos is definitely the number one choice.

Prime Tacos started when two Taquero brothers, Anthony and Eric Cardenas, decided to team up and bring their Mexican roots and dishes to the city of Chicago.
You know what they say; nothing brings people together like good food, especially delicious authentic Mexican food. Quickly, customers who tasted Prime Tacos delights started coming back for more. In a blink of an eye, what first started as occasionally cooking in their backyard and for parties began to grow into one of the city’s main attractions for food lovers.

You can now catch the Cardenas brothers cooking every weekend in different places in Chicago. From Pilsen to Southside and Cicero, the Latino-owned restaurant brings its unique creations to everybody, no matter the location.

Try their traditional and authentic Mexican platillos like incredible Tacos, Tamales, Homemade Aguas Frescas, and Mexican Micheladas, or blow your mind with Prime Taco’s one-of-a-kind creations like their Hot Cheetos Burritos and, of course, the house specialty Hot Cheetos Burger. When you see lines of people waiting around the block, you’ll know Prime Tacos is in town.

The best hamburgers in Chicago are in Prime Tacos. Their Hot Cheetos Burger features (VERY) generous amounts of Nacho cheese with hot Cheetos, caramelized onions, cheddar cheese, and a prime patty, all served on a Cheeto-crusted bun. If you started drooling the minute you read this; then you are in the right place.
