Great tacos. We tried the steak (best), Barbacoa, and chicken tinga. All good. We took our kids and they enjoyed the steak tacos! A true compliment to them! We would go back.

Great food, just way too small for its price and portions. Our waiter was great, but service was so slow and no where to be seen when needed.

Great drinks and ambiance, good service, but the food was extremely bland. Our group ordered several different dishes and the taste was pretty dull.

Located in the beloved west loop. Great location, nice vibes and great decor. The food was ok but nothing to shout about. The drinks were good. The water was served room temperature and it was a task to get ice.

We went here for my birthday and had a great time. We made reservations in advance, and they even accommodated last minute additions to our already big party. Our server was great and very attentive. The staff surprised the whole table with a round of birthday shots that came out on trays with sparklers. The whole setup was so fun and completely unexpected. The food came out fairly quickly for such a large party and my tacos were really good. My only complaint is the margaritas, however delicious, were not strong at all. I'm not much of a drinker, and 3 margaritas and a couple of birthday shots later I didn't even leave with a buzz. But we all had a great time and will definitely go back.

The service was ok, although we had a reservation they didn't want to sit us because they were "booked" yet the place was almost empty. The food was pretty bland ( do not get the veggie option) the redeeming quality of the place is that the drinks were good.

Made a reservation to only be seated almost 45 mins after reservation time. Went for a birthday celebration and then waiter forgot the surprise for the persons birthday.

We always enjoy visiting one of the three Takito restaurants. The bar crafts amazing drinks and the food is spectacular. Bar Takito is definitely high energy with a west loop neighborhood crowd (We drive in from Evanston).

Take your significant other or a group of friends for a fun time and great food & Drink.

Had been a while (pre-pandemic) since we visited the venue but had always been impressed with food. This trip the food was just OK at best and the bill was a sticker shock. Over $300 for four of us (drinks and 20% tip included) however when you consider what we ordered (3 had tacos) it just seemed way overpriced.

The drinks were watered down to be the price they were and the service was minimal. The food quality was good in my opinion but for the portion, it wasn’t enough to be a meal, more like an appetizer which was disappointing given the bill was $250 and all 4 of us we still very hungry.

Three out of four of our brunch orders were messed up, it took thirty plus minutes to get our food “fixed” and the service was super slow. Overall it was a disappointing experience as this was all of our first times dining at Bar takito.

Extremely overpriced food and drinks for the quality, tiny mediocre tacos, all sides extra, $24 margaritas. Made a reservation on a weeknight, even though the indoor dining area was essentially empty when we arrived they tried to squeeze us into a corner table next to a dj booth, had to ask to be seated at a better table in an empty restaurant. Not worth the money

Disappointed in the service we received. Our waiter was very nice but seemed overwhelmed. We received food without utensils or plates and needed to ask multiple people to bring us some. Food was not cooked to requested doneness which just added to our frustration.
