Blogger Reviews of Mercadito

  • Eating For Sanity on Dec 24, 2013

    Our first guac was the tocino. Imagine bacon, roasted sweet potato, tomatillo pico, serrano peppers, and topped with fried sweet potatoes... can't go wrong! The other guac was called pera. This one had pears, chipotle meco epazote, and pico all mixed in.

  • Jorge B.Worst place to enjoy Mexican food it an embarrassment calling it Mexican or even TexMex more like Taco Bell... Just overly priced for a $10 meal... I rather go to PEPES or Lalos for better food.

  • Maurice W.They play (good) EDM all day, all the time mostly House and Melodic Trance. AND the Margaritas are awesome.

  • Serious EatsVery loud and sceney, but there is no doubting the soft handmade tortillas.

    55555 by Serious Eats


  • Andrew B.Langosta and pork belly tacos were scrumptious, and who would pass up guacamole with bacon in it? Not this fat kid.

    55555 by Andrew B.


  • Lafa V.Great tacos, guacamole and cocktails!

    55555 by Lafa V.


  • Duncan K.Another snarky place that makes a party of three wait until the 4th has arrived when you could be serving us drinks and letting us enjoy the evening. What silliness.

  • Gwyan M.Try the Summer Cloud.....

    55555 by Gwyan M.


  • Deanna M.Yummy pork belly tacos and mahi mahi tacos! Margaritas were the best in town. The EDM was a good touch (:

    55555 by Deanna M.


  • GOM _.La endalada verde con pollo esta muy bien. Los ceviches necesitan sal.

    55555 by GOM _.


  • Jennifer M.The steak taco (as well as everything else on the menu) is fantastic! Accidentally asking a Bull's player to take your group picture is also kind of cool.

    55555 by Jennifer M.


  • Scott S.Margaritas - amazing! They look small, but they pack a punch. The guacamole is superb, can't go wrong with any taco selected. Great service, get a reservation, the place is small, fills up quick!

    55555 by Scott S.


  • Nancy L.It was okay, you cant have dinner on your lap. They sat us downstairs and didn't have a actual dinner table. Next time ill say no to downstairs :(

    55555 by Jason M.


  • Barry J.Best hangover cure ever...thank you!! Will recommend to everyone!!

    55555 by Barry J.


  • George W.They should make their items order-able from my smart phone by adding them to the app "appay biz". That way, I can order ahead using "appay"!!!!!!!

    55555 by Karla M.


  • Amy C.Zomg. Where do I begin? Best speciality tacos and guacamole. Had some blueberry Margarita with a salt and pepper rim. Service was impeccable and crowd was out of a modeling cast for vogue? Miami also.

    55555 by Amy C.

  • Mary Kay H.Eater says try the Cookie Cutter ($11) made with gingerbread rooibos tea-infused Herredura reposado, Ferrand Curacao, lemon, Negra Modelo beer and garnished with bourbon smoked sugar and orange peel.

    55555 by Mary Kay H.


  • Will L.The b.n.g.t.m. (big nose goes to Mexico) isn't worth the additional cost over a traditional margarita, even if it is on fire.

    33333 by Will L.


  • Will L.Order the pastor tacos and the chile de árbol salsa.

    55555 by Will L.

    55555 by Nan P.


  • Georgina D.I've never been treated as bad as I was treated this afternoon in "el mercadito"

    22222 by Georgina D.


  • Georgina D.No recomendado para turistas, trato despectivo y una espera larga mientras veíamos como daban mesas a otras personas. Penoso

    55555 by Georgina D.


  • Deepti S.Best music ever!!! And mangoe guac!!

    55555 by Deepti S.


  • T H.FYI: You can't mix and match the tacos on the menu, so you have to order three of the same taco. Service is slow. The shrimp tacos are great, guacamole is good.

    55555 by T H.

    55555 by Paul D.

    33333 by merrick b.


  • Mitchell W.Went on a Friday night, so it was really loud, but service is quick. Guacamole wasn't something to write home about, but tacos were great.

    55555 by Mitchell W.


  • Kristin N.The carne tacos are amazing. Opt for a beer or a glass of wine and skip the watered down margaritas

    55555 by Kristin N.


  • M B.Mmm for Mercadito... I recommend all the taco's especially camaron shrimp tacos & the pollo ones. The dorado mahi mahi ceviche is delicious...

    55555 by M B.

    55555 by Time Out Chicago

    55555 by Réjane P.


  • Motorola M.We'd love to go everywhere during Restaurant Week but can't. Show us what you think we should eat the next time we're at Mercadito with a picture of your dish. Tweet it to us @motorola. Happy eating!

    55555 by Motorola M.

  • Louis B.Tequila lounge downstairs is small but tons more quiet on Saturday nights

    55555 by Louis B.


  • Time Out ChicagoThe cumin salt rimming this cucumber-laced "pepino el pyu" tequila drink will smack any hangover to the curb. Here, bartenders make hoja santa into a syrup to add an herbal finish to each sip.

    55555 by Time Out Chicago


  • @scottkleinbergThe Little Market cocktail has pineapple and chili and it's served in a chili-smoke rinmed glass. It's terrific.

    55555 by @scottkleinberg

  • Time Out ChicagoTry the estrellados y tampiqueña from our 100 Best list: We order steak and eggs, and we challenge you to find a better, more fairly priced version than this aggressively seasoned $12 skirt steak.
