    Great food, great service. Really enjoyed the margaritas (both lime and cucumber), split the queso fundido, pineapple guacamole, and various tacos (skirt steak, softshell crab, octopus, al pastor) were delicious. Ambience was nice and lively. There was also a magician that came to our table and entertained us for 10 minutes or so - was really good - usually I could take or leave a magic act, but he had a good delivery and was a good showman overall. Would love to come back to eat and drink.

    Takito Street - Lincoln ParkResponded on August 5, 2022Brian!! Yes, we weren't sure about Magic either but this guy is truly mystifying and fun. Appreciate the feedback on the cuisine you tried. Hope we see you back to sample more soon!

    Came for Thursday night dinner with a few friends and we all had a great time! The large margaritas were half off for happy hour until 6:30 which was fantastic! Our waitress was so nice and very attentive! We had the opportunity to sample a new Mezcal and then all 4 of us were given a free mezcal margarita! The chips, guac, salsa and tacos were all fantastic! This place is a must!

    Takito Street - Lincoln ParkResponded on August 1, 2022Love it!1 So glad you enjoyed Takito Street. Hope we see you again to try our many tacos & more drinks!

    We went for Cinco De Mayo and even though they were busy the food came out fast and was delicious. They even had a mariachi band, a dj, and fun sombreros and headbands. There was great energy and I will be back for normal dining soon

    Takito Street - Lincoln ParkResponded on May 16, 2022We had a blast throwing our Cinco de Mayo party. I'm so glad you enjoyed it! Yes, reserve your space to return soon--$2.95 Taco Tuesdays are a deal and happy hour. See you soon!

    Very good food, relatively small portions, expensive beer, very noisy. We were basically 40 years older than most of the crowd, but there were young families. We really enjoyed the bean and pork belly dip and the cilantro rice.

    Takito Street - Lincoln ParkResponded on March 30, 2022Hi Steve, Thanks for joining us. You're right, our crowd varies greatly by day and time of day and reflects Lincoln Park. Glad you enjoyed the Pork Belly refried beans--it's one of my fav new additions to the menu. Every item we serve with pork belly (omelette, taco) is exceptional bc of the way the chef prepares it. Hope we see you back soon to explore more of our menu. Cheers!

    First time visit for Restaurant Week dinner. It was a good deal. We tried both appetizers -- one to share would be enough on a subsequent visit. I had a taste offhe carnitas tacos, which were very good. I was less satisfied with the shrimp tacos that I ordered. The shrimp "batter" was puffed rice, I think -- it overwhelmed the shrimp, which I could barely taste. Drinks were also good. We'd be interested in returning and trying the regular menu.

    Takito Street - Lincoln ParkResponded on March 30, 2022Thank you for joining us. It's helpful to get feedback on Takito's Restaurant Week menu. We're glad you enjoyed it, thought it was a "good deal," and enjoyed our drinks. Each of our tortillas are handmade, fresh for each taco ordered and designed to complement the filling, just as our house-made flavored salts that artistically rim our margaritas are composed to complement the fresh fruit margaritas. We look forward to your return so you can sample more of our contemporary offerings.

    Waiter wasn’t attentive much. Took a while for someone to see us after we sat down. Seemed like he was the only person running a huge section. Food was pretty decent. Took forever for condiments to come. Just overall not a to die for experience. Willing to give it another try… maybe for a brunch.

    Takito Street - Lincoln ParkResponded on February 23, 2022Hello! Glad you joined us for National Margarita Day and got to enjoy the festivities. With $1.95 tacos and specials on Margarita flights the place was busier for a Tuesday than expected and we apologize for your service. We were hustling last night and as you can see from other reviews, our service is usually on point. We will staff better going forward and are grateful you came. Hope you'll return, especially since you enjoyed our vibe. Cheers!

Last, the ambiance and vibe of the newest of the Takito Restaurants is all about fun--all at super reasonable pricing especially with others nearby raising their prices.

    This place seems to have no management. Not sure if it is about to go under or what? We all understand that Covid is affecting restaurants but there is no excuse for what is going on here. Food is mediocre at best and extremely overpriced- don't be fooled, the portions are tiny. For $30 their carne asada- was a small piece of meat deemed "shareable" but it was tough and overcooked. Food took almost an hour to come out- drinks were small and watered down After paying for and waiting 40 min for a take out order we finally just left- no manager ever came over, server did her best- not her fault Best advice, walk right on by Takito You have been warned

    There is an overwhelming offensive smell when you walk in the door which dissipates after you sit down at the table. However, the food was very good especially the Queso Fundido and the Al Pastor tacos. The Mezcal Mule was also a stand out and I wish we had tried the Carne Asada, the photos looked amazing. Outside of the smell the decor was funky and fun and the food was quite good.

    Takito Street - Lincoln ParkResponded on November 24, 2021Thanks so much for reviewing Takito. Sounds like you fully enjoyed the food and drinks and only got thru some of what you wanted to try. There's the reason to return, right? This is DRINKSGIVING weekend so we designed a $8 Activated Charcoal Mezcal drink that sooo crazy delicious. Don't miss it!!

    I wanted to start by saying drinks here are delicious, but I was shocked by the portion size of the tacos and the fact that they came out in little boats rather than on plates, the queso was also a tiny portion and more consistency of string cheese than queso. This restaurant had a lot of potential, just didn’t meet the expectations of our group

    Takito Street - Lincoln ParkResponded on November 4, 2021Your group of 40 for Halloween were fun and everyone seemed happy. We loved hosting you. We'd be more than happy to serve on plates in the future if your group preorders the tacos. Just let us know. We've found that guests prefer the boats, so our default are boats. Glad you like the drinks. We use the freshest fruits we can source and our mixologist is a master. Thanks sharing your experience. We hope you see we're listening and working to make Takito a primary Go To place in Lincoln Park.
