Local Eats: Fire It Up

What better first impression could there be of the owner himself greeting you at the door, escorting you to your table, and taking your order?

Fire It Up in Naperville, IL at North Aurora Rd and Weston Ridge Drive is a locally-owned fresh-food Mexican restaurant. It's a small place, but never feel encouraged to head out the door as the dinner rush starts.

The menu is dominated by a variety of small tacos, starters, salads, sides... and then there's The Trunk. A double-handful of a rolled flour tortilla filled with steak, shrimp, pork, chicken, green chili, a beef/cheese/bean concoction, and your standard lettuce-and-sour-cream combo. It's heaven in your hands, and if there's something on that list that doesn't make your taste buds water, they'll leave it out.

If you're not in touch with your inner carnivore, there's also a Veggie Trunk to sate your appetite.

I highly recommend coming in for a bite, staying for the food and the atmosphere, and returning for the fantastic customer service.
