Enjoyed their enchiladas and beer. Technically you are only supposed to pick one sauce for the enchiladas but I asked for all of them on the side and they did not charge me extra. That made me very happy.

Reliable Mexican cuisine, but not amazing. If are looking for enchiladas and margaritas, you will certainly get them here, but they will not be the greatest things you have ever tasted. Service was fast and friendly. A good location if you are going out and about in River North.

This Lalo's location is no longer open. It has been replaced by another restaurant/bar called LaSalle Power Company. If you want to go to Lalo's, they have other locations in the suburbs (Glenview, Des Plaines, etc.)

Pros: valet up front, service, food, atomosphere.

Cons: valet is $12 (is that the norm? we dont know because we just moved here)

I used to really enjoy this location and I don't know what's happening but I feel that both the food and the service have gone downhill. It takes a while for the meal to arrive and it doesn't quite taste as good as it used to.

The food was pretty good traditional mexican - nothing special or out of the ordinary. The service could have been better. The waitress took forever to get drinks from the bar and was very slow at filling up waters. They also claimed to not have iced tea or lemonade EVER even though it is listed on their menu. Won't be rushing back.

LOVED their chips and salsa. My husband said it was the best chorizo taco to be the best he?d ever had; chicken mole enchilada was good as well as the chile relleno. Very tasty rice, and I liked the refried beans since I prefer them

Pros: Good food, great service, spacious feeling, bright decor

It was just a bad experience all around. We we're seated quickly got water, chips and salsa. Our waitress came to take our order she got an attitude when I ask her if the had cheese enchiladas and acted like she had no clue what they were

I was really dissapointed with this place. For years I had heard some goods things about this place but wound up being unimpressed. I tried the one in River North and the one in Cicero- both failed to meet my expectations. At the River

The service was great, the food bland. I now know why the waitress hadn't asked how we wanted our steak? Where was the meat? There was very little meat for our $14 dollar price. The vegetables that accompanied it had no flavor what so

Too big for the kitchen to handle-From the overcrowded dining room to the cold food and to the dirty bathrooms in the basment-this place is terrible! Don't bother. Stick with Uncle Julio's for "lincoln park" style mex or go down to

I agree, Lalo's in Berwyn does have good food, and great margaritas. The margaritas are very potent, so be careful! The wait staff is very good to the customers. My girlfriends and I have literally sat there for 3 1/2 hrs without ever

I USED TO BE a regular customer for Lalos Restaurant,but lately, I found the food was not the same, higher prices and not so friendly service.

This is my FAVORITE restaraunt in Chicago. I love the authentic mexican food and (strong)Margarita's. You have to love a place that has a margarita that is as big as your head!

I went here on a Friday around 7. The place had incredibly tiny tables, the margaritas were not strong at all, and they played Gloria Estafan videos (very loudly) for literally over 2 hours. It was absolutely ridiculous. The place is cute,

The second-floor dining area is expansive and colorful, and the service accommodating. The food was pretty good -- don't miss the pickled garlic that comes before the meal with the complimentary chips and salsa. Lalo has a large menu, but

Lalo's has the daunting task of filling the space formerly occupied by Michael Jordan's. And yes, there are plenty of "Michael" reminders all over -- despite the new Mexican theme. Enter and find a huge "Welcome to Michael Jordan's"

This is the former Michael Jordon restaurant, but that has nothing to do with the current place. The food was very good. The tortilla soup had noodles in it, but still tasted good. The lunch menu's fajitas were very tasty. I had the beef,

This lively dining room buzzes with corporate types at lunch and happy hour. The space is awash in color: purple ceilings, vibrant paintings and high windows that let in lots of light. Start with a combo platter of…
