What Insiders Are Saying
Bar Takito is like a tuxedo T-Shirt - it wants to be formal, but go here for some tacos, drinks, and to party.
Everything was great but no Valet
Love this restaurant! Great for a date or meeting up with friends.
The service was nice, but I had put in my OpenTable that we were having a celebration and nothing special was done. It is also very pricey: We asked the waitress how big the tacos were and how many we should order and she said two is enough as they were "normal sized." In reality, they were actually very small. For $4+ per taco, this is not a good value. The margaritas were good but not very strong (I don't like too strong of drinks either) and had a lot of ice in them.
Food was good but the service was not. They add gratuity for groups larger than 6, so I don’t think our server was too concerned about service.
Service is very slow and extremely impersonal. It's also VERY loud.
A little disappointed in the service tonight by our waiter Christian. The other staff were very good though. We ordered two appetizers, guac trio & esquite, both requiring chips. We asked our waiter for more because there were 3 of us and we ran short and still had about a third of each appetizer remaining. He never brought them- when our tacos were delivered by another staff member, we told him and chips were then brought out immediately. We’ve dined here for dinner & lunch several times before. Margaritas good, but overpriced for the small, $13/$14.50 with more ice than drink. In the ladies room, there are two stalls and one stall door was missing several slats, leaving o four inch gap with no privacy.
Good but not worth the price unless you go for happy hour.
Great happy hour! They have the best margarita I have ever had!
Popped in midday so the place was pretty empty. You could tell their shifts were turning. Everything was prompt. Had margaritas, queso and 2 orders of tacos. Everything was great. Margaritas is what will definitely bring me back, I preferred them to the food.
The service was horrible, probably because gratuity was included and our server didn’t feel the need to do a good job. Food was ok, definitely not worth the price.
I love the Margaritas at Bar Takito. They are some of the best in Chicago. The tacos are delicious for the most part. My friend had the coconut shrimp and didn't like it at all. The veggie and meat-based tacos are really good.
Service was slow. Food was good but I disliked coconut on fish taco :)
Went in for a lunch. 2 servers working and about 3 or 4 tables. Took over 20 minutes to have a server come to our table to take an order.
I brought it to the attention of the manager, and she gave a free appetizer for the trouble.
Over all, not that good of food or ambiance for the price.
One of the BEST in the West Loop! Best staff, awesome service, great menu! Very creative menu & drinks! Awesome owner, Mario!
Taco shells were rubbery and the food was not worth the price.
Nice ambiance and great food & drinks. I will be back!
Lunch with friends. The food was great!
We made a reservation on Opentable for 7:15pm, and when we arrived at the restaurant at 7pm, they were already cleaning up and closing for the day and gave us no explanation why. The open hours on the door also said they should have still been open.
Not quite what I expected, but enjoyable nonetheless. Went for my birthday, thinking it was more of a bar atmosphere; pretty empty around 9:30pm. Definitely a great place to start your night. The drinks were delicious.
I definitely recommend getting shared plates and sharing tacos. The taco plates are small, so mix and match some with a shared plate or two. The food is great. It’s very similar to Takito Kitchen (nearly same menu) but more of the West Loop vibe.
We were here for the first time - and now I wonder what took us so long. The food was delicious and interesting - from our shared appetizer (a trio of guacamole) to dessert. We look forward to going again soon.
My date’s food came out at least 10 minutes after mine. I waited to eat my food until hers was ready so it was cold by the time I ate it.
We had a nice time and the food was great, but the server didn’t check in with us after the food was served. And we had to go find her to get our check.
The place was empty and the service was terrible!!!!!
Awesome food, great Margaritas, wonderful service! Thanks Phil for always taking great care of us!!
Very over priced. Shrimp taco was inedible. Not sure if it was the sauce or fish itself.
Had a great time at Bar Takito. The tacos and arepas were amazing, guac trio was awesome. The servers did a great job with everything. Would reccomend.
It was really nice but our server was very slow
Good food, not great for children as they do not accommodate.
Service was poor. Waited forever to order. Once we did, 4 of 5 entree’s came out. I finally called attention to this. Waiter apologized, then after some time brought out the wrong entree. He was totally confused.
Then he never came back to check on us or bring our bill. Again waited forever. And there was only one other table of patrons.
My tacos were very good(fish with coconut) but others thought there tacos were just OK. Coconut rice as a side was good.
Overall not impressed and not worth a trip from the Loop for lunch
We did not receive good service and that brought the whole experience down. Food was good, nothing notable.
Great ambience. Great Staff. Good Drinks. Food was good as well, however the price for two bite tacos are on the expensive side.
Love this place. Great creative drinks and food combinations. Small
Plate options which show the culinary art of the chef. Affordable.
Went for Sunday brunch. The food was delicious portion size was good. Hostess was kind and sweet.
We dined at Bar Takito to celebrate a birthday in which I coordinated dessert and candles in advance. To our disappointment, the waitstaff visited our table twice the entire evening and was preoccupied with the other patrons around us. Our waitress recommended way too little food - we all left starving. Although the food was good, we received our entrees over an hour after we sat down and it came one by one. Management was flippant and impatient with us, despite never complaining once! We sat for over thirty minutes without drinks or appetizers and could barely hear one another given how loud the establishment is. The table next to us received their meal within minutes of sitting down and were doted on all evening while we could barely track someone down. We did not receive any dessert to celebrate the birthday and honestly could not wait to get the heck out of this place. Although the value is good for the quality, I would never recommend Bar Takito to anyone given the incompetent and disrespectful management, aloof waitstaff, and average food. There are WAY too many other good restaurants in the city to waste your time at Bar Takito. Huge disappointment.
I love this place. I'm just sad that they discontinued the ceviche!!! 😔 The Seasonal Margerita was the bomb!!!
It was Taco Tuesday, I’m not sure if that meant tacos were on special though. We ordered three different tacos and all were delicious. The shrimp cocktail was not typical but was very delicious. The service was pretty subpar. There are so many great restaurants in this city so I don’t think I’ll go back here any time soon.
Amazing- per usual. The cucumber margaritas are THE best margaritas I’ve ever had. The steak arepa is my favorite item on their dinner menu. All their tacos are delicious and their avocado pure is out of this world.
Tacos are kinda small but good. We had the shrimp and steak tacos. Guac was excellent!
Order at least one app and one entre or you'll go home hungry. Portions are tiny. Smallest steak tacos I've ever had. About the size of half a dollar bill. Less than an ounce of meat. It was comical.
