“Tacos and Margaritas...need I say more?”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

It's very loud, but they have a small dining area downstairs with another bar and a slightly different, limited menu. The tacos are fantastic and if you're with a group I highly recommend ordering 4 or 5 different kinds and sharing. They are all different and unique. Great margaritas, too!

“A new favorite”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

I recently went here with a group of 8 and every single one of us loved it. I had reservations for 6 and we ended up having 7, the hostess was a little rude about it which started off my experience not so great as she said we would have to wait 30 mins just to add one more person. We visited the bar and before we all had drinks in hand our table was ready, which turned things around a little. Our waitress was fabulous and great at recommending thing. The cocktails are amazing, like nothing I've had before. This was my favorite meal of my four day weekend in Chicago. Can't wait to visit the NYC location and hope it lives up to the high bar Chicago has set!

“Upscale Mexican”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Easy walk off of Michigan. Tapas style. Homemade corn tortilla tacos (served 4 small tacos per order). Super friendly servicer. Lots of vegetarian options. We had tacos, quesadillas, guacamole, and a salad. Make a reservation...they're on opentable. I highly recommend Mercadito.

“Great food”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Had dinner here with friends and the kids and was well worth it. Food was delicious and the drinks well prepared and strong. Service was good too.

Be warned, this is not the place you go to if you are looking for a quiet dinner. We dinned early and even though it was probably slighly more than half full, the place was loud.

“Super tasty food”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Great restaurant, Our waiter/server Peter did a great job in selecting dishes for our table of four. It's 'tapas' style, so tasty plates kept on coming for us to share, really first class food with some great service. We managed to sit outside in the warm Chicago evening but inside was really busy with lots of people enjoying themselves.
