    The location is everything. The vibe is great. The food is basic and the drinks are basic. It’s is definitely not worth the prices. I’ve had better food from a food truck and better drinks at a college party. It’s all about dining in the neighborhood. That’s really what your paying for, the experience. The server was incredibly friendly. Thank you Bobby.

    Service wasn’t good. Server not friendly. Long periods between when the table was checked for needs. Drinks were very slow to come out. Had to send some drinks back because they did not taste good at all (margaritas, arguably a drink that should be a strength for this establishment). Multiple times the wrong drink or food was brought to us.

    Service was slow. We had to wait for our food for a good 40 minutes if not longer. All four of us were not impressed with our food at all. The steak was so dry and they rice and beans had no flavor. Most of us did not finish our food. I will say that the margaritas were pretty tasty. I was disappointed as I used to come here all the time and the food was excellent. I probably will not go back after this experience.

    After a snafu on the reservation, with the help of the fantastic hostess, we were finally seated on the patio. From the point on everything was lovely. Good food. Good drinks. Decent service. It all worked out well in the end. And we made sure our server felt appreciated. Thx so much!

    Been here a few times! Margaritas tend to be on the sweet side, but tasty. Burgers and quesadillas are also good. Went after a Cubs game recently, and they were out of half the menu and a few of the margs... Gets rowdy later in the evening, but always a welcoming crowd. Great, friendly service!

    I’ve been to DS Tequila Company before and had a really great experience. This time a few friends and I were celebrating our last performance together and we’re going out afterwards. The food and drinks were good. I will say my food was a bit cold when it arrived, not good for the price. The margaritas tasted great but like I said.. a bit pricy. My only complaint would be with the staff. Our waiter accidentally ordered us extra food. We offered to take it so it wouldn’t be thrown out, not knowing we would be charged for their mistake. When talking with the staff they wouldn’t compensate us for their mistake. I’m not one to give out favors for others mistakes, but we took the bill this time. Just something to remember if they order you too much food. Just send it back unless you’re feeling generous ha :)

    Fun and energetic restaurant. Great margaritas and tacos. Our server Brennan was fantastic and super attentive but there was a woman named Lenna I think that was rude and kept staring over at our table and made us feel very uncomfortable. Will be back but not when she’s working.

    The food was good. But my friend is a vegetarian and a cook. He ordered the taco salad and unfortunately you were able to taste the grease on the tortilla. It was as if the tortilla was cooked early in the day and then stored. The salad in the tortilla was okay until it met with day old tortilla grease. The drinks were overpriced for the quality that they provided. None of them tasted like they had any tequila in it.

    This place is great but terrible if you are coming with kids which i was. They were blasting Very offensive rap music just tons of swear words, at 6 PM. In addition, they have no paper menus at all except of the brunch menu. So if you’re coming with kids who don’t have their own phones, you have to read them the menu on your phone. In my case I had four kids with me, and an international traveler who could not load the menu on his phone, so it was extremely inconvenient to place an order. But the thing that made it very very impossible with children, was the music. I should add, however, that if it was just adults hanging out, the music would’ve seemed fun, and the lack of paper menus wouldn’t have been a problem at all! I just wish that they would make it even slightly more family friendly. All they have to do is not blast Cardi B at 6 PM, and maybe have a few paper menus around for the kiddos. The staff is always kind and gracious here, so this is no negative remark on any of the service stuff.

    My friend got harassed by an abusive boyfriend who would not leave. We tried to protect her from him who then pushed one of us (a woman) onto the the ground. The staff was watching from inside from the glass window while this was happening right in front of their restaurant. They did not come out until the man started to walk away. After we returned to our table, our server told us that the manager had instructed them not to serve us any more alcohol - as if it were our fault. This restaurant is at the only big queer neighborhood of Chicago and this is how they handle domestic abuse.

    This is the 2nd time we've been at DS Tequila, and we enjoyed it yet again. The only drawback is that we asked to be seated at the bar, but it was full so we were taken to the "covered patio area." That area doesn't have nearly enough heat lamps out there, so we were freezing. It was snowing and we could feel the moisture coming in from outside.
