Mexican
Being one of five daughters is where the name Cinco comes from. It represents five of the strongest women - my sisters. My passion for food and hospitality comes from being practically raised in a restaurant. Our food menu is made of eloquent Mexican dishes that are not commonly found in restaurants, but rather at home. In addition to our Dinner menu, we feature a cocktail program that takes the same pride as the food and is just as diverse as we are. Upon entering Cinco our hope is that you feel like you are at home, except you get to relax and let us cater to you. We look forward to welcoming you - Arianna G. (Chef/Owner)

    We loved the tacos and guacamole. Cinco Mexican Kitchen is better than any restaurant that we've been to in the Lincoln Square neighborhood.

    You might almost miss it driving or walking by, but don’t. It’s a charming family owned and run restaurant - intimate, amazing and unique dishes and the cocktails are magical

    Really delicious food and drinks - made with care and with fresh ingredients. Service was great - friendly and just frequent enough. Lively environment but no issues hearing each other in our group of 6.

    Nice little spot fee frills. Got in a seated right away. We were looking for something fairly low key. Food was good if a bit basic (empenadas, taqueria, tacos) but did have some interesting flavor offerings. Worth checking out for staple Mexican faire.

    Incredible place! Cinco is the cutest! The ambiance is perfect-great energy but definitely quiet enough for you to have a normal conversation at your table. The food is so delicious and the cocktails are even better! So yum!! My friend and I started out with the Street Corn and Queso de Cabra (warm goat cheese..omg!!!). I got the Grilled Peppers & Onions Quesadilla for my entree. Perfect sized portions & easy to share! My cocktail was equally amazing! You’ve got to try the Timoteo if you like a little kick with your tequila! 5 stars all the way! I can’t wait to go back again!🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

    What an excellent neighborhood find. The place is small and intimate, but had big flavor and fantastic craft drinks. The watermelon margarita (not on the menu) was amazing--not too sweet and had a little kick to it. We also tried The Edith-Tequila, peppercorn syrup, cucumber, mint. Delicious! The goat cheese/salsa appetizer with toasted sourdough was just right in consistency and spice. The chicken enchiladas were stuffed full and the verde had a great finish. Go support this small business when you can! They deserve to succeed.

    10/10! This little gem in the Ravenswood area is a MUST VISIT. From handcrafted margaritas (no sour mixes) to a plentiful bar, you cannot leave here thirsty. I tried the veggie empanadas and the churros. Best I have had in Chicagoland. Was a beautiful place for date night and will be bringing family here too very soon.
