Best Mexican Food in Chicago for Cinco de Mayo
In 1996, a father and his two sons opened a very small 10-table Mexican restaurant in the Boystown/East Lakeview community located at 3420 N. Broadway. Thankfully for us all, El Mariachi grew increasingly in popularity with the locals by following a strict policy of only serving top-quality, authentic Mexican dishes and stellar margaritas.
The original 10 table restaurant is still thriving today, but several years ago they opened a ginormous, second restaurant at 3906 N. Broadway, just 2 blocks past the northern Boystown border. The newest location, El Mariachi Tequila Bar & Grill, has the space to offer a full-bar area complete with stools and cocktail tables and two spacious, multi-level, separate dining rooms.
The décor and ambiance is very tastefully done. Traditional Mexican paintings, fountains, faux painted, near 2-story walls and even a hand painted, vaulted ceiling complete with an image over the front door of the restaurants Founder and Patriarch! In warm weather, they have an intimate, outdoor, courtyard patio where you can dine al fresco and pretend you’re vacationing just about anywhere!
The family went on to open Revolución (3443 N. Broadway), a new Mexican steakhouse and to my knowledge this is Chicago’s FIRST Mexican Steakhouse.
