Mexican food

Okay neighbors-- what is the best Mexican restaurant in Avondale?

  • I like l'patron on Diversey and California

  • L'Patron is great, though the service is pretty slow. I also like La Oaxaceña on Milwaukee. There molé enchiladas are awesome.

Garbage everywhere

Hi, I was wondering what we can do about the garbage in the streets and in the yards. I live on a corner and don't have a fence and the front of my house is so littered with trash that I'm embarrassed to invite people over. I always ask people to come through the back door. I have picked up numerous garbage bags of trash and then it's all piled up again the next day. It's disgusting. Any ideas on how to make this better?

  • Thand for the ideas. I will contact the alderman for sure and ask for more signs and trash cans on the corners. I also think bringing more programs into the schools would be helpful. The neighborhood cleanups are a good idea and hopefully the ones that litter will take notice, but it really doesn't fix the problem because the streets are dirty again a few days later.

  • I live on a corner too. I clean up trash twice a day. People go to fast food places and eat in their car and out the window it goes when garbage cans are near by. We also have a high school close by and I have seen them clean...

    I live on a corner too. I clean up trash twice a day. People go to fast food places and eat in their car and out the window it goes when garbage cans are near by. We also have a high school close by and I have seen them clean out their car and they see me picking up the trash. I have told them I am not your maid. I even put the trash on their windshield after they left. It is parents not teaching their kids who grow up to be adults. I saw a mom walking down the street with her kid going thru her mail and just throwing it on the ground as she walked tearing it to pieces making it even worse. I said something to her and she had the nerve to say that it fell out of her hand by accident. I told her do you think I am some kind of idiot! I handed her my bag and made her pick it up and said she should be a better example to her child. I don't know what the answer is. We have a neighborhood clean and green every spring and year by year more families are coming out on my street. So hopefully something will stick. We also make the high school kids commit to the clean and green too for their community service hours. Someday I hope.

Uninsured dentist needed (no actual problem at present time)

I grind my teeth when I sleep. I cannot find a place to get a quality mouthgard. During the summer, I have allergies to outdoors and have to spit up mucus first thing when I get up. Very gross, I know. Sometimes, because it's getting old (the mouthgard), it comes out of my mouth and falls under my covers. Anyone have suggestions.

p.s. I have NO INSURANCE.
