It is heartbreaking when a restaurant serving good ethnic food starts changing the menu to what is perceived as the local taste. When Gabriela started the food was amazing, you could have a variety of dishes such as "Pollo Tipilo" which consists of chicken with mushrooms in a cream sauce, to "Chilaquiles" the spicy tortilla casserole. I used to recommend Gabriela to my out of town friends and it was a place where I loved taking them, because it was "not texmex, or calmex, but mero (true)mex" The last time I visited the menu was such that I could have gone to taco hell, and not known the difference. And so, into my memory I commit another great West Side restaurant that has gone the way of profits.

Have been ordering from Gabriela's for years, and the ensalada gabriella, empenadas, and veggie tamales are great. But the real find is the half chicken combo - it's a meal for two. Only complaint is service has gotten slow sometimes, guess it's getting too popular.

the entrees did not meet my expectations. They were ok... but not excellent.

Gabriela's is the BEST Mexican on the West Side! My favorite is their half chicken combo, fried plantains and the crema de lote. Sorry if I spelled that wrong but it is a creamy corn soup with peppers and sour cream. It is a meal in itself. If you love mexican food you have to go.
