In Crystal Lake is restaurant specializing in traditional Mexican cuisine.


Antigua Mexican Grill, 1500 Carlemont Drive, Unit J, opened in early November.

Owner Luis Rodriguez was inspired by the flavors of his hometown of Zacatecas, Mexico. The 32-year-old installed a large mural on a wall to make patrons feel as if they were transported to Mexico’s historic bull fighting ring, Plaza de Toros. Antigua translated in English means ancient.


We like food. We got some old recipes from parents and thought ‘Why not?’ It’s a nice atmosphere. ... We don’t consider ourselves super fancy, but we’re a step up from your normal taqueria. Our prices are in between. We feel like this accommodates everyone.”

Antigua Mexican Grill specializes in ceviche, moles and fajitas. We make homemade margarita mix and guacamole each day.

It’s all from scratch. Our skirt steaks are really good, and our fajitas are like wow!

It’s been crazy, we’ve been steady and then on the weekends we’re slammed.
