The new restaurant on Maple Road is known for the following specialties: Birria, the $10 Mexi-Cheeseburger, $55 Parrillada meal that feeds two or three people, the Menudo — on weekends only. There’s a $45 taco tray that feeds three people. The regular taco dinner is $13.25 and is served with rice and beans.

“Everything is literally homemade,” Jauregu told Patch. “Everything is made from scratch. We make our own spice blends. We cut our own meat on slicers and by hand. I think our prices are good.”

As for the Mexi-cheeseburger, “we make the patty ourselves,” the owner explained.

She said the desserts are a crowd favorite at Taqueria Los Paisanos. During its first weekend of business, Taqueria Los Paisanos #2 saw customers from Lockport, Plainfield and even Chicago.

“People are spreading the word, which does help,” Jauregu told Patch. “We’re very grateful for the people that supported us on our grand opening. We added a new kitchen, so we have a double kitchen now.”

Patch asked the owner what type of atmosphere her new restaurant aims to project.

“I just want it to feel very friendly and calm,” she said. “It’s a modern farmhouse theme mixed with vintage black and white (photographs) of Mexican artists and historical people.”
