Mas Amigos

 40 E Springfield Ave
Champaign, IL

No contest

As someone who grew up in Texas, I am addicted to—and yet extremely discriminating about—Mexican food. I would never consider returning to most Mexican restaurants in Champaign-Urbana. But the first time I ate at Mas Amigos, I was hooked. If I could afford it, I would eat there several times a week. But don’t misunderstand: It’s extremely affordable when compared with other restaurants. We have fed all five of our voracious adult children, plus ourselves, including a 20%+ tip, for something like $69.

On those rare occasions when we decide we can afford to eat out, I have NO desire to try anything new. Mas Amigos is my default restaurant. So far as I am concerned, there is no other Mexican food in Champaign-Urbana or even within over a hundred miles from here. In fact, I have little desire to eat at ANY other restaurant in C-U. You can have them all—just give me Mas Amigos’ enchiladas y frijoles y arroz y totopos y salsa and I will be happy! I can’t possibly give a higher recommendation.

#10. Two Enchiladas, One Tamal Rice & Beans

Incredible. That’s all I can say.
