With a name chosen for those who can't remember restaurant names, That Little Mexican Cafe serves up some of the freshest and tastiest Mexican food in the Chicago area – and don't you forget it. The Evanston mainstay
has opened a location in Edgewater
, so now you can enjoy the same seven salsa varieties and guacamole made-right-before-your-eyes in the city too.
Just don't write off the new location as a carbon copy of the original. Befitting its downtown zip code, the Edgewater restaurant features a slightly more urbane vibe. The high ceilings, bold color scheme, lively music and large outdoor seating section make for a fun, vibrant night year round. The menu features top-notch traditional Mexican dishes like enchiladas, burritos and tacos served with house-made tortillas and ample portions of rice and beans. Or try more sophisticated fare like the pork tenderloin with chorizo and wood-grilled duck breast.
Whether you're drinking margaritas or sangria, you will not be disappointed by the premium beverages, made with top-shelf wine and spirits. Here's hoping they help you forget the $20 price tag on your fajitas. That's one thing you don't want to remember.
Average cost: $10-$20
