  • "Enjoyed the chips and guacamole with tasty salsas as usual. My friend loved her barbecue chicken salad, and I enjoyed my grilled platter. Beverages were great as usual. Our server was very aloof and disinterested in us. Overall, though, we're glad to have DS Tequila in the neighborhood."

  • "Always a good time at this place. It is situated right ion the heart of Boystown which is the LBGTQ center of Chicago. The restaurant is always filled with wonderful eye candy. The tacos are great but small so get a few of them. The burgers are a good size and will fill you up. Always a great spot to hang after work, grab a bite and a beer and mingle."

  • "We stopped in for dinner and it was packed. Best suited for a casual nite out and wanting to drink. Our table was knocked into quite a few times, but all in all the scene was good entertainment. "

  • "If you're looking to go out and have fun, but just want to snack on something, then this restaurant is okay. As a group of 6 20-something females celebrating a birthday with a dinner reservation, we could barely fit into the doorway because the place was so packed for some March Madness, which is understandable. It was pretty loud and crowded. We all ordered margaritas, some of us getting the jalapeno one, others getting the traditional house recipe. The waiter switched everyone's drinks when he brought them to the table, no big, but when we attempted to give the drinks to the right people, we realized they all tasted the same. I had a burger, which was just ok as the bun disintegrated since it was soaked in sauce. Overall, just fine."

  • "I went with here with a couple of friends and my fiance for brunch on a Saturday morning. They said there menu had a bunch of new items and from the ones I tried both myself and off other's plates everything was extremely tasty. They have brunch packages either including bottomless mimosa's or with 2 bloody mary's and a mimosa. I would recommend this to anyone to try if they are looking for a different brunch place then you are used to."

  • "I thought the service and food were very good. The server was very prompt and made some great food recomendations. We were looking for a restaurant that we have not tried and I must say our venture out of the box was well rewarded."

  • "Neighborhood bar at roughly Roscoe and Halsted with pretty good wings and burgers. Burgers are notable for using Allen Brothers beef which is, in my opinion, the best you can buy, and for the "toppings." But know that this is definitely a bar. Bring kids only if you are there early and know that everyone gets carded (even if you are the gray-haired guy with two kids at your side)."

  • "If my title doesn't give it away, I don't know how else to say it! It was decent. They had a lot of burgers, everyone enjoyed them. Nothing bad to say. But also, nothing exceptional. Typical burger bar. One thing, it's December and they put us in the heated outdoor room... well it was still super cold. We had to eat with our coats on which isn't the best experience AT ALL. This could have been why I was impartial to the place."

  • "Had a great evening here! Started with blackberry margaritas. They were refreshing and for a party of 3, we each had 2 glasses. First the mountain of nachos. The cheese was creamy & we could have made a meal out of them. We also had jalapeno poppers, which were fiery and gooey good, as well as chips with sauce trio. We all ordered different burgers. I highly recommend the Lady Marmalade. Caramelized onions and cheese on a pretzel bun was to die for. I had to take a doggie bag home to keep room for dessert which was a decadent s'mores sundae which had mounds of toasted marshmallow, chocolate and graham crackers and was festively presented with a sparkler on top. Run, don't walk to D.S. Tequila. Really fun place, especially with a group!"

  • "We really enjoyed DS Tequila on a Friday. The service was great and quick, the team was really fun. Our beverages were good as usual (Lagunitas IPA on draft, Maker's Mark, and Palomas). We enjoyed tacos (breaded fish and steak were great!), BBQ chicken salad (tasty and huge portion), Texas tenders (huge portion), and a Dee-Lite platter (great chicken and veg platter). We also enjoyed the chips and guacamole and sweet potatoes with that incredibly awesome marshmallow maple dipping sauce - to die for. What made it even better were the great sauces on the side which ranged from tasty to hotter than we expected. The only downside was the bill: a bit pricy $115 before tip for 4 of us. Recommend this good casual dining option on Northalsted."

  • "Had friends in from out of town thought I'd try out DS for brunch. I had been there before for dinner and had a great time. I was not disappointed. The amibience was still great for brunch and the skillet selections were pretty good. The $10 mug-sized mimosas are a great deal."

  • "Had Brian as our server, and he did an amazing job serving a table of 15. He was attentive at our table and others around us. Really top of our game. Tacos are always good, but some of them were cold, not sure if it was the slaw or toppings that caused that. Overall awesome experience as always!"

  • "Went for a quick bite. Had been before, so had reasonable expectations. Despite reservation, told 30 mins for inside table. Ended up being ok since the inside smelled like a frat house basement bar. Outside was far better. Frozen margarita was good; could actually taste some acohol, not always the case at other places. Food ok, nothing special. Despite bacon&cheese, burger was bland. Annoyed that "pretzel bun" was just a whole wheat bun. Mentioned it to server; didn't seem to know or care. Had to explain the difference to him. Manager knew to apologize, follow up with kitchen and made a partial adjustment. Kudos for working the floor and taking action. But not sure it was enough to get me to come back."

  • "I went for my 25th birthday before we all went dancing. I loved everything about this place. So much so that my best friends & I have gone back twice in the last week. We just couldn't get enough!! Be patient with drinks & food; it may take 3 minutes longer than you want but the place is always packed! Worth any wait you may have."

  • "Wow! We were excited to try a new place and we weren't disappointed. The staff was so friendly and we had great service. More importantly, the food was amazing!!!! Each one of us were raving about our meals. We started with the chips and guac and the trio of sauces. The burgers were great-The Dead Texan was delicious. And- save room for the Reeses Smore Sundae!!!! We would definitely recommend this place to everyone!!"

  • "My new favorite among Boys Town's multiple good offerings for Mexican food. The drinks and the food are all top-notch from what I can tell after two visits, and completely reasonable in price. Great vibe, especially outside, when the weather cooperates. Both waiters I've had have been really great, too, and the margaritas are hard to beat, especially the less conventional flavors like Blackberry and Pineapple Chipotle."

  • "I attend this place during Restaurant Week in Chicago. The bar was energetic. It was definitely buzzing! The food was mediocre at best. My food was served cold. I had to send it back. My husband enjoyed the Fried Green Tomato Burger. The drinks were good. Overall, it was an 'okay' night, but I hate having to send my food back!"

  • "I have always experienced a great time at DS Tequila. The atmosphere is always conducive for groups and the staff is always great. The owner is always very friendly and it's very sweet that he took the time to come tell me happy birthday. There's no doubt in my mind that I will be returning for future events, and would even be very interested in seeing if DS Tequila has any volunteering packages or how volunteering-friendly they are. Anyways, continue the great work and thank you for everything that you've done for my friends and me! :)"

  • "The place was pretty empty when we arrived for our early dinner reservation. The host (a guy who came from behind the bar) checked us in on his computer, then led us to the tiniest table in the place, even though plenty of much bigger tables were available. He had to teeter on a chair not even fit for a child, while I crammed my bulky coat, very large frame, and purse in the narrow booth seat side. Kyle was an excellent server. A woman I believe was the manager was friendly. We hurried and left, due to the discriminatory seating being so uncomfortable. We went down the street and ran up a $300 bar tab at a more het-friendly bar. Those big tables were still empty when we left. Their loss."

  • "We went here for a girls night and had a lot of fun. We went on trivia night so it was pretty packed by the time that started. The food was great! However, I would say my captain drinks were a little weak which was disappointing. But overall we enjoyed this place and would return again!"

  • "The Chipotle Pineapple margarita is phenomenal! What a great drink with just the right amount of spice! The steak taco has so many amazing flavors--maybe one of the best/most unique tacos I have ever had. And while the other tacos we ordered were very good, they didn't quite live up to the steak. We will definitely be back!"

  • "First of all you have to realize that this is really a bar - not a restaurant. If you do that you can appreciate the worn bar decor. We were the only patrons at our lunch visit. Our server was fantastic - he recommended, advised, suggested and entertained us. It made an awkward meal in an empty restaurant lots of fun. The only tequila served is the house brand - it's good but not great. Prices are reasonable and the food is good quality. The 9-layer dip was delcious and the tacos were almost fine dining. The BBQ pork was great as was the jalapeno cole slaw. Fantastic. With a little work on decor this place would be great. We will try it again."

  • "On Labor Day we went to this local spot that we go to all the time. We called ahead to see if they where having the 1/2 PRICE MONDAY FOOD and they said yes. We arrive and get to our table and the server verifies that its 1/2 PRICE MONDAYS. After we order our food and drinks, the server returns and tells us the food is not half price because of the holidays. We found this to be shady and just because its a holiday you don't wan a give the food half off? Really? If your going to do a weekly promotion, do it WEEKLY and not when you want to offer the promotion."
