WELCOME TO EL PAISA
In 1999, the De Santiago Family opened their first taqueria in the corner of 47th & Logan. We have the desire to bring you our passion for food, and share it in a family friendly environment. A place where you can bring your whole family to have the best food, have fun, and enjoy it all in a colorful atmosphere. Our goal is for you to experience a little bit of our heritage in every bite.
