They must have a new cook as compared to two years ago because hand down this is the best authentic Mexican restaurant in Bloomington-Normal. The first time I ate here the food was just so-so due to the bland tasting food and salt was a necessity at the table. Now the food is spectacular and such a big change from the first time I ate there. I have now partaken from 2 items from the breakfast menu and 4 from the dinner menu and each time the menu items were very flavorful. I now plan to try to order a different item off of their menu each time I go in. Very huge thumbs up.

Thought Blo-No was doomed UNTIL I found EL PORTON! This small place: has large proportions, damn good salsa, the food is always quick and hott, their meet is genuinely fresh and the beans/rice are legit by themselves. Please, give it a try!

Hands down the best Mexican food in Bloomington! The service is great. Prices are on par with everywhere else and for the quality of food, that is worth the trip over from Peoria any day!

The veggie burrito is delicious with green sauce! Very fresh ingredients and quick service. Closed Wednesdays. We have never been disappointed with this delicious taqueria. Don't go here expecting to get a margarita - bottled beers and sodas only.

EXCELLENT FOOD!! If you are in Bloomington-Normal dont waste your time with the others (EXPECIALLY Fiesta Ranchera & Labamba's). This place is top notch on taste & service. After living here 5 years & trying pretty much all the Mexican restaurants this one will not disappoint. This is the only place I will go to...if I am not in a Taco Bell mood, LOL! But this is the REAL DEAL...they do not disappoint. I recommend the Steak Burrito Meal. Its about $6, super big, tasty burrito STUFFED w/ Steak & beans/ rice. And you better be hungry cuz its big!
