Cesar's Killer Margaritas

$$$$(773) 296 9097
Hours:SATURDAY12:00PM to 10:00PM

Though they have a pretty sizable menu of Mexican food, with anything from tacos to baby back ribs slathered in green sauce, the real draw of this casual Lakeview spot is its margaritas. Whether you're here with a few friends in the winter trying to pretend like snow isn't real or are enjoying their laidback sidewalk patio on a sunny afternoon, you can count on Cesar's for a reliable boozy beverage any time of the year. They have all sorts of fruity varieties, like guava, banana, and chamoy, and can be customized with salt, chile salt, or sugar on the rims. And while these margaritas are on the sweeter side, they are surprisingly strong, so we like to pace ourselves by snacking on their complimentary chips and salsa between sips.

Antique Taco

Antique Taco is a homey spot for any casual meal in Wicker Park. Definitely eat tacos and maybe even buy yourself some antique furniture.
