Surprising Salsa and Great Guacamole

Food is genuinely authentic with a perfectly seasoned salsa and maybe the best chile relleno I have ever eaten (and I have eaten a population of poblanos). Service is relaxed and excellent.

This place has a sign outside stating that they have the best margaritas in Chicago. Well if this is correct Chicago has the worst margaritas in the US Mainland. The food was also a big disappointment. I don't have much to say about this place only that it has a great location and should change everything about it. Not my... More

I walked to this little restaurant on Ontario St. from my hotel to place an order to go. The decor was really nice and eye-catching on the outside and equally as cozy on the inside from what I could see from the lobby area. The service was very fast, hostess was very friendly and the food was very good. We... More

Went for lunch & service was terrible. My daughter & I arrived about 1:00 & there was only 1 other occupied table (larger group). We waited a long time for everything! After finally ordering & getting food, I was done before being offered more water or chips. Took forever to get bill & pay bill! Seemed that the waiter &... More

The service was great but the food was just ok. I ordered quesadillas off the appetizer menu and didn't eat them, no flavor. The guacamole was good but the salsa was too spicy. (and I like spicy food) My son ate it and drank 6 glasses of water. My daughter ordered nachos with chicken but didn't like them. I don't... More

If your are in Chicago and looking for a place for a few drinks, this is the place. The margaritas were hands down, they best I have ever had. They limit you to 10 and after only 2, I can understand why.

I was apprehensive to eat Mexican in Chicago, but gave it a go. I asked my waiter Cesar if the mole was authentic. He brought me a taste...wow, deep chocolate w hints of cinnamon. Best I have ever had! The food was really good. Margaritas were swell too.

You won't be disappointed. Everything down to the salsa and chips was excellent and reasonably priced for the area. We were there for lunch after some shopping. Had the shrimp chimichangas lunch special and was the best ever for under 10 bucks. Would go back..is right across the street from Trader Joes.

The service was great here. A tiny, quaint Mexican restaurant with great food. The margaritas were excellent. We only planned on stopping in for some margaritas and chips but ended up staying longer and ordering food. That's how great this little place was.

Great location central to all of the shopping on and near Michigan Ave but without the wait times and prices of Michigan Ave restaurants. Hubby and I have been here twice now: once for lunch and once for dinner. Both times we were highly satisfied with the customer service and food. My dinner entree was under $11 and I still... More
