If you are looking for a place to kick back and enjoy some margaritas and tacos, look no further than Bar Takito in the West Loop neighborhood.
The kitchen puts a new spin on classics from Mexico, Central and South America. For example, they have avocado pine nut puree instead of the traditional guacamole. It’s just as good, if not better than the guacamole we all know and love. I also love the shrimp tacos, which includes a watermelon gazpacho.
Let’s talk about those margaritas. Bar Takito has some of the best and most creative margaritas in the city. I like the Peruvian Margarita which is topped with some citric spicy salt. Can’t decide which margarita to order? No problem – Bar Takito offers up margarita flights, where you can try three different drinks. Perfect for people like me who struggle with decisions.
If you come to Bar Takito on a weekday between 15:30 – 17:30, you can enjoy your margarita at half the price or try some of their other happy hour drink specials. It’s a fact of life that everything tastes better when it’s half price.
