Flo brings a touch of the Southwest to Chicago. We put carefull thought into the quality of product that we serve our guests. We purchase local produce and free range meats to ensure the finest quality and freshest taste. Our cocktails are skillfully created using small batched liquors and only the finest juices and fruits. We have our chili shipped to us from a small farm in Los Cruses, New Mexico. Consider Flo for your next dining experience.

New Year's Day Brunch Gem

We went to Flo right around noon on New Year's Day. It was pretty crowded, but we only had to wait about 15 minutes for a party of 5. How thoughtful to have coffee available for people waiting to be seated! We all had different dishes, and all of us enjoyed it immensely. The prices were great and... read more

On a recent dinner visit we enjoyed our margaritas and guacamole to start but the entrees were a disappointment. The meat in both the duck and beef tacos was dry and the soft shells were greasy. The cheesecake flan was innovative but not really special. Service was friendly and attentive but the food was ordinary.

Went around 11:30 am and had immediate seating. I had white chicken chile soup. Wonderful spicy but not over powering. Chile had corn, black beans,carrot and lots of cheese. The salad was great the ranch dressing was not bottled but fresh.service excellent.

Word of advice, you better show up at this place really hungry as the portions are ginormous! I had the skirt steak eggs Benedict and man was it good, but it would have taken me a week to eat it! Great service and fun atmosphere, though being an old hag, I found the music a tad loud and overpowering!

Be prepared to wait so don't go if you're STARVING! There was a vintage shop right outside that we went to while we waited, but it only took 20 to 30 minutes to be seated. Great atmosphere, service and the food was delicious. They have traditional mexican dishes. I don't remember the name of what I got, but it included... More

We took a walk from our hotel (The James) too clear our heads after one too many the night before! Wow, this place is worth the trip. Superb eggs benedict etc. coupled with great service.

The food was VERY good & fresh! I appreciate that they have vegan options. Flo has a nice vibe, and it's a good place to stop for lunch, even dinner. Check it out!

Oh wow. Went for brunch on Sunday@ 10:30. The place was busy but we were seated right away. Wonderful, attentive service. Great menu selections, but way tilted for lovers of the great southwest. I had Huevos Verde - rich flavor and opened my sinuses. Another in our party opted for the Tamale Hash - rich, earthy flavor in the coarse... More

Stumbled on this place thanks to previous reviews. Had the nacho appetizer and the spiced grilled cheese and both were very good. Portion sizes are a bit large but I am not complaining. This place is worth a visit.
