Excellent excellent food! I love the tacos here! The food is made with fresh ingrediants and seems pretty healthy. Sometimes there is a long wait but it is worth it!

Tarascas has excellent food. Absolutely the best burrito - the Burrito Tarasca. Great margaritas and outdoor seating available in the summer. They also deliver. My favorite Mexican in Chicago.

Tarascas has great margaritas. The food is decent, but the margaritas are what keep me going back for more. It is great for groups and is in a good location for heading out afterwards. Definitely my first choice for Mexican in the city.

I stumbled upon this place one night while coming home from work. What a great find, the food is a unique blend of Mexican and Caribbean fusion and has the perfect amount of spices. The margaritas are what will bring me back again and again. The margarita choices are enough to keep you occupied, but the fresh taste and flavors blew me away. Some of the friendliest staff and ownership that I have ever been witness to. Do NOT miss out on this gem in the city, it is well worth it.

Pros: Best margarita in town, the patio

Cons: Hard to get in on the weekends

This place was just what we were looking for last Friday-- something quick, not too expensive, outside. We found all three! We ordered a mojito-- deliciously fantastic! The homemade chips were wonderful and crispy. We weren't starving so we just ordered the queso fondito with shrimp. It was a little greasier than I usually like, but it's baked cheese, what should I have expected, right? Anyway, it turned out to be a great night and I will definitely be back.

Pros: Outdoor seating, friendly waitstaff, tasty food

Cons: Bus boys could use a little more training

This is the best combination of Mexican food and cafe seating on the Northside. There is no tradeoff at Tarascas between the patio seating and service, as it has been great each time I've been there. The margaritas are done well, the burritos are tasty, and the plantains are plentiful. However, the best part about Tarascas is the opportunity in the summer to hang out casually on Clark and watch the people stroll by - jealous our your pitcher of Margaritas, your food, and your date. The only downside can be found in the chips and salsa - they are not too wonderful, but easy to discount considering the total package.

Pros: Food, people watching, drinks.

Cons: Bad salsa. Hard to find seating on nice afternoons.

Been to this place a couple of times. The staff is always happy to have you there, at least during my visits. Very accomodating. Breakfast is not my favorite there but all the other food is solid.

Pros: Friendly Service, Outdoor seating, Great Margs'

Cons: Can be busy

Since we discovered this gem, it's become a favorite place to get margaritas and Mexican food. I recommend the golden margarita (worth the extra $1) and the chicken burrito dinner, but just about everything on the menu is fantastic!

The food at this place is quite good. The nachos are excellent and I really enjoyed the carne asada. The best thing though are the margaritas. They have a huge selection of tequilas and make their drinks very strong. I recommend one of the huge aquarium-like margaritas. A few of those and you are well on your way to a good night.

After seeing the HUGE margaritas every time my bus drove past, my girlfriend and I decided to try it out (being the margarita connoisseurs that we are). From the start, the service was downright bad. First, the hostess didn't want to add us to the outside seating waiting list. After winning that battle and finally being seated, the waiter displayed the same lack of concern for doing his job correctly. Our requests for water and an ashtray were continuously ignored, but the biggest problem came when he brought us the small margaritas after we had clearly ordered the "BIG ONES". Following the theme of poor service, he didn't offer to take them back... so we tipped accordingly. Food was good and portions were adequate, but you won't be seeing my face there anymore. It's El Jardin for margaritas from now on!

A mural of three bare-breasted women holding aloft a fruit tray provides a splash of color in this bright, white-tableclothed space. Food is fresh and generously portioned; favorite dishes include tequila shrimp…
