Chowdown Showdown Mexican Food Challenge

Let us know your favorite restaurant by commenting below.

¡Ay, Caramba!

We are sure excited to kick off this week's Chowdown Showdown challenge. 

Over the next several days, we will be looking to you to let us know which restaurant has the best Mexican food in McHenry County.

It could be the spot that has the most delicious varieties of free salsa to munch on. Or perhaps they serve up the best chimichanga or beefiest burritos this side of the border. Or maybe they have the best deals on the best tacos that make you go loco thinking about the next time you can go back for more. 

Whatever the reason, let us know your favorite Mexican restaurant in McHenry County by commenting below.

The restaurants with the most comments by 5 p.m. Tuesday will become finalists for this week's Chowdown. We will then post a poll asking readers to vote for their favorite. We will post an article Saturday morning to let everyone know the winner. 

If you are new to the McHenry County Patch Chowdown Showdown, the chowdown is simply a fun and easy way for readers to let us know where their favorite restaurant is for pizza or chili or a burger. You can find all of our past Chowdown's here

With that said, let's get this challenge rolling: When you have a hankering for Mexican food, where do you head?

Another vote for Huntley's Del Toros. Best salsa and their enchilada suizas are divine!! So sad they are closing at the end of the month :(
