Jumbo shrimp sizzle with the piquant spices of homemade salsa in the a la veracruzana (a $10.95 value), and the grilled skirt steak tampiqueña satisfies meat cravings with a sliced poblano chile and a cheese enchilada on the side (a $13.95 value). The costillas a la parrilla invite appetites to admire a generous, full slab of Mexican-style barbecue ribs as they lounge saucily on a bed of rice, vegetables, and optional throw pillows (a $17.95 value). Satiate an herbaceous appetite with the chiles rellenos, which offer up a sumptuous stuffing of cheese and corn, encased within a green-pepper shell (a $7.95 value). Or, discover the shredded chicken center hidden beneath the soft surface of classic enchiladas, colorfully topped with cilantro, green onions, melted cheese, and a choice of rojas, verdes, or mole sauce (a $9.95 value). Chilly fruit lends color and a heady sweetness to red wine in the included pitcher of sangria, a vivid and robust concoction perfect for sharing with a date or for distracting a charging bull.

During warmer months, overhead fans cast breezes on diners when the cool presence of a frosty Jarritos or horchata isn't enough.

On Friday nights, those refreshing cocktails help guests build up the nerve to get onstage and sing karaoke tunes or announce their candidacy for Mr. Universe.

Though there may be more than one way to skin a cat, there’s only one way to roast a goat—learn from a master. According the Chicago Reader, once John Zaragoza became interested in making birria, he sought out Miguel Segura, a renowned birriero in La Barca, Jalisco, Mexico who roasts his meat in backyard brick ovens. Two weeks studying with Segura taught him the varying cuts of birria and how to cultivate trust at the counter by chopping the meat in full view instead of pinkie swearing to each customer that the knives are clean.

Today, John and his family have their own recipe down pat. Kosher salt seasons the goat, which they seal in a steamer for up to six hours before covering it in an ancho-based mole sauce and transferring it to the oven. The cuts also yield a clean consommé broth that doubles as a garnish, which can be sprinkled on top alongside onions, cilantro, lime, and peppers. Handmade corn tortillas add the finishing touch to a birria meal at both Birrieria Zaragoza locations.

The goat can be ordered bone in or out, on a plate or in a taco—Every Day with Rachael Ray magazine ranks the restaurant No. 2 in the Midwest on a list of The 64 Best Tacos in the Country. For a spicy side, John's son Jonathan brews a signature fire-roasted salsa from scratch. Imported Mexican sodas wash down savory bites, whose popularity causes the Zaragozas to go through as many as 22 goats in a single weekend—more than the average caged T-Rex eats in a month.

Each week, Salseria’s staff squeezes more than 1,000 limes, collecting the juice necessary for the margaritas they make fresh everyday. The drinks, along with sangria, beer, and more than 40 types of tequila, complement a selection of Mexican food that includes staples such as burritos and tamales. Salseria also honors local Mexican neighborhoods with dishes such as specially seasoned tacos inspired by Chicago’s Little Village neighborhood. The restaurant’s signature salsas and seasonings—which flavor grilled eats such as carne asada, shrimp, and chicken with mole sauce—range from mild to hot, in order to accommodate all reckless to anxious taste buds.
