Maize Mexican Grill; on Campus, Champaign
Carne Asada Tacos & Chicken Burrito
During my Junior and Senior year in college, I lived two blocks away from here. I would come here at least twice a week. It's a small restaurant with about 15 seats inside and two tables outside, people usually order take out. They do get slammed during lunch and dinner times.
You always get complimentary chips. They have two types of salsa - Molacajete and Tomatillo. My favorite is the Tomatillo, spicier of the two, the red pepper flake adds little heat. Cubed skirt steak, onion, and cilantro sit on top of fresh hand made corn tortillas. Squeeze some lime juice on top or some salsa, lot of flavor! The burrito tortilla hugs grilled chicken, beans, lettuce, tomato, sour cream and cheese. Although, sometimes a certain ingredient would be gathered rather than spread out through the burrito. The portion and taste is always consistence.
Honestly - can't do wrong with getting anything here.
