If you find yourself craving some really good fusion Tacos, you must head to Fire It Up!
Its a small restaurant with around 10 tables - modern yet simple and comfortable. 
Fire It Up is a Hole in the wall kinda place. You'd almost miss it while driving on North Aurora Road.
But once inside, you'll surely be charmed by their edgy concept of fun, high-energy rock music coupled with fresh, homemade, quality food and drinks.
They have a limited menu but they serve high quality food and are priced reasonably. The food is incredible with some good vegetarian options.They also serve some good local craft beers.
The first time I was there, I tried the ShrimpTaco and Portabello Taco and loved both. On my next visit I tried the Southwest Chicken Taco and Veggie Taco and they were both so full of flavor. For starters, the Parmesan coated chips & Guac and the Shrimp Wontons won't disappoint.
I haven't tried their "Mini Brownie Chimichangas" dessert but I've heard it's exceptional!
All in all, Fire It Up is a great Taco Fusion dining experience. You will want to come back for more for sure!!
If you are looking for authentic Mexican food at affordable price, this is the place!
Totopos is a Mexican restaurant with special emphasis on homemade mexican cuisine. Its truly a hidden gem in Naperville. 
The sign inside says it all: "This is NOT fast food, the food is well worth the wait."  Totopos is authentic Mexican food made fresh to order.  
(Insider tip the tamales are made fresh on Tuesdays).   
Totopos also offers many vegetarian options which is quite rare in Mexican restaurants. Usually the vegetarians are stuck with lettuce, cheese and grilled vegetables, but Totopos offers delicious fake meat options. They substitute meat for soy. 
The woman who took my order (I believe she's the owner) was very friendly. She even made small talk while I was deciding what to order. She definitely made me feel welcome.The prices and friendly faces are enough to keep me coming back to try new items.
The only downside is that the dining room is mostly set up to be carry out  - there are only 3 tables inside. 
But as they say, the best things do come in small packages!
