    The tacos and margaritas are the best! I also love their salsa. I had the vegan tacos, which were great, and there was also one vegetarian taco option. I love everything about takito kitchen

    For those who like it hot, there is the Caliente Margarita with Chipotle Morita and Combier Corazon blanco. For those who prefer the sweet stuff, try the seasonal margarita with fresh blood orange. Read more

    Wow. Everything tasted very fresh, and it was very affordable for a party of four. We tried a variety of dishes and shared them all. The ceviche was amazing and flavorful, & hearts of palm salad--yum!

    Voted Best International Brunch: Takito Kitchen’s two locations in Chicago—the West Loop and Wicker Park—are fabulous spots to find International brunch flavors. Read more

    The salsas, shared plates (like a positively delightful salad of hearts of palm, pickled jicama and crunchy sunflower seeds) and sides show Takito to be much more of a bonafide restaurant than bar. Read more

    The spears of roasted asparagus were carefully placed over sauce-like, guajillo-flavored ricotta, dotted with bites of rhubarb pickled in a style akin to kimchi and crowned with a bunch of pea shoots. Read more

    At Fried Chicken Wednesday's here, you'll find nicely fried chicken resting delicately on a house hot sauce infused corn tortilla, cooled by a dollop of herbaceous aioli and creamy avocado. Read more

    Fish tacos and lobster tacos are great. Also the corn appetizer is a must. Everything here (except the masa chips) is gluten free. But you wouldn't even know it.

    One of the best taco joints I’ve been to in Chicago, the fish tacos are superb. The brunch is a fantastic value as well!

    I have yet to find a seasonal taco here that isn't inventive and delicious. That the full menu is gluten-free is an extra treat.

    If it's a patio serving tacos and margaritas—and not a crazy wait—you're after, consider Takito, where chef David Dworshak puts out thoughtful Mexican dishes. http://tmout.us/lKTEo Read more

    Get the pork belly tacos. It's like having a voyeuristic passionate sexual experience in your favorite park with a unicorn angle that tastes like pig.

    The modern tacos (Alaskan king crab?) are the draws to this Wicker Park spot. Read more

    If you have a peanut or nut allergy, stay away. Almost every taco is sprinkled w/peanuts or has a sauce made with nuts. It's shared plate dining which makes nut allergies a pain for your party.
