This is our go-to spot for margaritas and queso fundido Delicious chips and tacos too. This place can get packed, so get there early!

Sad remnant of what it used to be. Mediocre food. Watered down margaritas. This place is two blocks from our house and used to be our go to Mexican. About two years ago something drastic changed. We tried twice but never again. Too bad.

Service, food, atmosphere all excellent. To top it off: The best margarita I've had in a very long time. Will certainly make this a regular stop when in Chicago.
