If you’ve lived in Chicago for any stretch of time, you’ve probably been to El Mariachi in Lakeview. The large back patio is a popular spot for group get-togethers, specifically the ones that involve day drinking. While the OK Mexican food here isn’t going to win any awards (the menu has standards like breakfast burritos and tequila french toast), nothing costs over $10.99. So, honestly, you really can’t afford to not come here.
