ST. CHARLES – Two Mexican food restaurants now will be able to serve alcohol with their food.
At the Jan. 7 St. Charles City Council meeting, aldermen unanimously approved liquor licenses for Burritos Los Azaderos, 2400 E. Main St., Suite 112, and Taco Madre, 902 S. Randall Road, Suite A.
Burrito Los Azaderos is located in the space formerly occupied by A’ Salute Lounge & Grill. The restaurant’s owner also owns El Rayo Burritos and Guacamole at 818 E. Main St. in St. Charles, but does not have a liquor license for that location.
In 2018, Taco Madre took over the lease of Taco Fresco. Taco Madre also has locations in Geneva, North Aurora, Montgomery and Naperville.
The owner/operator of Taco Madre wants to expand business operations to include on-site alcohol sales similar to the locations in Geneva, Montgomery and Naperville, St. Charles Police Chief James Keegan said in a memo.
In other business, aldermen approved a liquor license application for SIP Parties, which plans to open in the Fox Island Square shopping center, 1 Illinois St., Suite 110.
The business will host painting parties.
The owners currently run the business at local bars. Alderman also approved a temporary liquor license for a St. Patrick’s Day event that McNally’s Irish Pub will host from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. March 17 at 1st Street Plaza.
