Our family of 6 stopped in the little gem for a late lunch after visiting Lincoln Park. It was really good! The salsa has just the right amount of heat. The queso fundido was a crowd pleaser! I had the El Jardin Margaritas...a great margarita...More

If you have a group of friends and a hunger for a great burrito + cerveza, El Jardin is your place. The vibes are fun and laid back. You can spend hours taking in the environment and other patrons while throwing back tequila and chips...More

My husband and I went here on our first date over 30 years ago, and it still tastes exactly the same! Great food in an unassuming neighborhood place that's only gotten larger over time.

Nothing out of the ordinary. Menu is pretty standard. Food prepared well. Salsa for chips is pretty spicy. Service is friendly and efficient. Atmosphere is nice.

Whenever we go see the Cubs lose at Wrigley Field, we stop off here after the game. We did it again last night, and it was the same old casual spot with good Mexican food and really nice margaritas. We had enchiladas, tacos, and quesadillas...More

My daughter and I stopped by here on our way to Wrigley Field to see James Taylor. We ate outside and felt comfortable talking with other diners. Food was good, will stop again when in the area.

Killer margaritas. I have been going to this place often on for 36 years. It's always a fun stop and you can't beat the margaritas. I think they are the best in the Chicagoland area Great place to be with a lot of friends, also.

I enjoy a dive Mexican joint from time to time, and this lived up to what I was looking for the night i was there. Food was 8 out of 10, atmosphere is very casual and relaxed, and the margaritas are strong. Will repeat. No...More
