Chicago’s late-night burrito restaurants have long provided much-needed sustenance to the after-bar crowd. While Burrito House serves as a destination for tipsy-yet-hungry patrons, what sets it apart from other establishments is its size, decor and menu variety. Burritos and taco are definitely prominent, but the hungry masses can also find fajita burritos, a lengthy nacho menu, tortas and hefty dinner combinations.
Don't let Burrito House’s appeal to late-night diners deter you from going for lunch as well. Cheerful blues and yellows and tiled floors and tables throughout the restaurant's two large rooms distinguish it from other store-front burrito establishments. It's also an ideal place to grab a casual dinner with friends before your late-night drinking excursion. With nothing priced at more than $6, Burrito House serves authentic Mexican food at a great bargain that will still leave you with enough cash for a night of margaritas.
Average cost: <$10
