The food is always great and large portions. Atmosphere and service are decent. Great margaritas. We generally go for lunch so we can't speak to the dinner crowd but lunchtime is usually pretty quiet and service is quick.

Ordered a Mango Margarita and some enchiladas in mole. Others in my party also had Margaritas and one person asked for... More

Bad service, bad management, rude bartender, sticky floors. And we never made it to the dinner table thanks to all the bad service. This is a big place with tables lined up in rows like a cafeteria. We made our way into the bar area and I noticed two people leave a high-top table. Generally those are first come first... More

Go here instead of the chain Mexican restaurants. We started with the gigantic Margaritas made with Patron and lime juice and chips and fresh salsa on the side - very picant and satisfying . Very tasty and worth the price. The tortilla soup is make with fresh ingredients and can be a meal in itself if you order it with... More

I hate to knock off 2 stars for this review because the food was great! If only they could get a handle on the logistics of running a restaurant, it could be really great. The food, like I said, is great! Nice portions, taste is awesome. The margaritas are made well and taste wonderful. The prices are pretty good, too.... More

My wife and I came here during our first trip to Chicago years ago, and we loved it. When I came back to town by myself, I made sure to make the trek up to Lincoln Square just to revisit the place. I'm not sure if I was here on an "off" day (Monday) or if everything has just declined,... More

Had a lay over in Chicago and took a trip to this Lincoln Square Restaurant. The enchiladas were super, ceviche very good, and queso dip excellent. Prices on the higher side of reasonable. Service was quick and friendly. Will return.

I didn't love the guac, usually I devour the stuff, but I was done after a couple of bites. I had the veggie fajita, it was good, but the seasoning was a bit lacking in flavor to me. It was a busy lunch crowd and thus it took a bit longer to get extra salsa and more water.

TORTILLA SOUP! TO DIE FOR x 100! Nice atmosphere & food is par or above with other good Mexican places in Chicago... BUT NOT THE BEST. I would suggest going strictly for the tortilla soup :) The area is great to walk around in, and a lot to see. Great place to dip in to... for some tortilla soup :)
