One of the "10 Hottest New Restaurants" in Chicago! -Zagat

"I ate nearly every item on [Takito's] easily navigable menu and I didn't have a single throwaway bite." -Mike Sula, renowned Chicago Reader food critic

Founded by Mario Ponce, Restauratuer (Bar Takito).

Located in "hot" Wicker Park/Ukrainian Village, Takito Kitchen features Modern Mexican cuisine featuring artisanal handcrafted tacos (every tortilla is made-to-order), flavor-popping shared plates using fresh organic ingredients by local farmers, and mouthwatering desserts.

The Takito cocktail program showcases handcrafted margaritas and cocktails centered around various high-end tequilas and rums, in addition to Latin beers and wines. We squeeze fresh juice daily to ensure the absolute best flavor. We will spoil you.

Add to this, an inviting contemporary urban atmosphere, complemented by a service approach admired by most.

Service was a little slow to get us started (around 15-20 minutes after we were seated). Other than that the salsa and tacos were great and filling for a decent price.

Food was very good. But it was so loud where we sat. We asked if the techno-dance-party music could be turned down and it never happened. Not very enjoyable when you can hear yourself think. I really was looking forward to the coconut margarita, but it was out & no longer available, another downer. Not my best visit here.

The service was great. The mushroom taco was too legit to quit. I loved the pineapple and lychee margaritas!

Our server was terrific. Very friendly, and had really good suggestions. The tacos we had were very good and the apps we started with were excellent. Margaritas were good and the happy hour (before 6:30) time frame was very realistic with great discounts.

I go out to dinner with friends to enjoy the company and talk and laugh but it was too loud in Takito for that. Very disappointing because it is a great spot and great food.

Great tacos. I loved the earthy mushroom tacos (amazing vegetarian option) and shrimp ceviche. The margaritas were delicious. I am most impressed with how well our server handled my party of twelve.

$3 Taco Tuesday is delicious. Saves you $1-2 a taco too. Guacamole with pine nuts is tasty!
Chairs are uncomfortable.
Music can be loud.
Wonderful service.

Takito Kitchen is good enough if you live close but it's not worth making a special trip for.

We stopped in for taco Tuesday ($3 taco specials), they had plenty of seating available, seasonal margaritas and friendly servers. The menu is very nut heavy but our server was helpful with helping me figure out which dishes could be altered to remove the nuts. We settled on Avocado rice without pine nuts (my favorite dish of the night), chicken al pastor tacos, skirt steak tacos, and lamb merguez (this one has pistachios cooked into the meat, but I hear its delicious).

Check it out if you're in the area or have large group since its easy to order family style!
