Lazo's served us hearty and flavorful food in HUGE portions. Despite my disappointment in the lack of abundant vegetarian options, they were very accommodating and made meat-free fajitas for me. Excellent salsa - it had a kick to it that I loved. Service could have been a little faster, but wonderful overall.

I have been coming to Lazos for over thirty years? He started here with a small store front and has expanded over the years. They have drinks as well. I love the steak burritos. My favorite is he steak or chicken enchiladas with rice and beans in red sauce. I love their seals, too me that's what makes the meal.... More

Went to celebrate a birthday at this place and let me start off by saying I've had better. Ordered the streak fajitas and they were brought out on a plate. What happen to the skillet? I asked for a large margarita and its like they gave me the smallest cup in the place. The margarita tasted super pre-made out of... More

Unlike most 24 hr eateries, Lazos has consistent food and service and affordable prices with good portions every time I go. I've been a patron for about 20 years now and am always pleased, full, and delighted with the friendly service. Good drinks, nice atmosphere, and the takeout is a lifesaver!

I am under the impression that authentic Mexican tacos do not have lettuce and tomato so was surprised that they did here. But they were good. I don't think the guac was home made. The margaritas were good.

I just had lunch in a great restaurant; even though it's summer, the AC temperature inside is not cold as it usually is during summer days. The place is very clean and service was great. We had one child within the party of four and a waitress immediately brought a chair for him when we were sitting down on our... More

The food is authentic, but we only had tacos as we went for lunch. The fish, ground beef and the chorizo beef tacos each tasted great. You can get them with just the basic stuff, or you can add on avocado, sour cream or cheese for a little extra. It is unusual for a place to be open 24 hours,... More

While visiting relatives in Chicago we ate here after the Navy Pier fireworks. This is kind of an interesting place because there are two sides to the restaurant. One side is brightly lit with a cafeteria look to it and the other side is a more traditional restaurant with full bar and live music. We chose the more traditional side... More

We go here if we have a group of people... this place always has large tables available. The service is ok. The food is ok. The music gets too loud.
