When ordering, speak s-l-o-w-l-y, clearly & deliberately - good tunes but it is JUST exactly too loud to allow smooth communication w/ server - through no fault of her own, I would say, she never even knew she missed our order for queso & chips, as two of us dining were SO hungry, we nearly ate each others' arms - so that meant sitting, waiting for immediate nourishment that was never to be - and That, in turn, made us more clock-aware, in terms of the rest of our food coming out - the food ain't super-fast BUT hey, it's all made to order and was super-fresh (not in a 1970s way, but food quality) so just Be Sure to order one almost-instant arrival app if you arrive hungry (or someone gonna lose an arm, ok...) That was one of two order misses as only 1 of my two pair of tacos came out - and server had even repeated our orders back, twice, as clearly that's a constant problem - but I had made one change which caused a most-minor understanding - again she's not to be blamed but there are easy ways mgt could fix that btw but I'll skip the suggestions - too bad cause would've been nearly perfect without that - no Big Whoop tho - Smoked Chkn Tacos: Yes - Tequilla Shrimp Tacos - jury's out - I'm weird about seafood at places that are not primarily fish-focused, so those little green-tinted shrimps kept trying to freak out the part of my brain that was trying to chow 'em down, cause they weren't of the plump, luscious-like variety (were not bad/fishy at all - it's personal preference and spending lots of time in coastal cities with local catch, not that similar can't be found, shipped in same-day, it's touch 'n go for me) - WHY DO I GO INTO THE DETAIL here? Place is not ridiculously-pricey, but CIUDADO!! it's not taco stand prices At All - just shy of $56 for two W/NO DRINKS OR TIP ADDED IN - Me: Tacos are really small (standardly so for type of venue) and I'm a guy who eats well (not a gorger - just solid-sized meal) so I had 4 ( 2& 2) and a side of cilantro rice - buddy had 3taco dinner (comes w/ rice & refrieds) & got Corn Hash sounded good --NOT My thing nor his -was a mix of corn (from can Or maybe sliced off cob - didn't even taste it once seen) and butter and mayo - not at all a relation to a corned beef hash or anything of the sort -- was like a dish you'd serve, jokingly, at a white-trash themed party (movie ref: Mermaids w/ Cher & Winona Ryder, anyone (?) anyone (?)) - BUT our server and probably other people must like it (?) - finally I'll defend their prices w/ fact that they've created a nice good-sized place, great barfood vibe, nice high ceilings, plenty to look at and they're paying Premium prices to lease that spot - satisfying and I'd say if you're drinking (duh) way more satisfying than my food experience, which was still solid - FINAL: to give it all a fair try, we split a dessert - the crazy Reese's ice cream marshmallow amalgamation which should include a warning on the menu w/ something like: "This dessert is different and definitely delicious BUT DO NOT order if there is ANY chance your dining partner might exit the restaurant to smoke a cigarette just moments before the spectacle of what might be a small rocket, with puffy clouds it dragged down, through the sky, and subsequently, lightly charred, as it fell to earth, fusing w/ said clouds which now sit atop the rocket, along with stripes of chocolate syrup inside the glass and like...2 or 3 or 9 other ingredients, all quality and tasty, crumbled, mixed and/or dripping down sides...because if timing works out in this way, with smoker not present, you must be Strong and Confident enough to withstand...I Kid You Not...the Turning of Every Single Head in the restaurant, tilting, cocking (sorry, boystown) or doing a complete 180, like a visual murmur or spontaneous stadium-wave that ripples thruout, as each and all adjust to get a glimpse of the freakshow - which it turns out was me, seemingly sole sponsor of this gi-normonus display of dessert phallus (sorry again, boystown) - the sudden thrust of spotlight, of course, left me feeling a need to address the onlookers, who, moments ago were merely diners, like myself, and sputtered out something just-shy-of-nonsensical, claimed no responsibility and motioned to the empty chair across from me, in hopes of convincing all that I was not dining alone - really, I wasn't - seriously... So be warned - and also be warned that the cloud confection is weirdly wonderful in taste and maybe more notably, in texture - try it unless you are lactose- or cumulus-intolerant. Wrap-Up: I'd return for the smoked chicken tacos alone I, along with the easy, friendly, but not overbearing service - just know food's not served instantly, but I see that as quality assurance and necessary. And oh yeah, I hear the place also has...um...Tequilla... Who knew. Next time.

From Our Editors

If tequila is the sign of a party, then a meal at D.S. Tequila Co. is likely to be a blowout bash. That's because the flagship store and restaurant for the tequila brand serves more than a dozen frozen and regular margaritas made with its trademark liquor, which is produced from 8-year-old agave plants using a double-distillation process. Real lime juice flavors many of the drinks, which come in varieties such as blackberry, hibiscus, and banana. The drinks may be the star, but like the kangaroo that almost knocked out Sugar Ray Leonard, the food menu holds its own. To make their burgers, chefs top prime beef with fried egg, jalapeno poppers, or onion rings. And for tacos, they fold crumbles of queso fresco, coffee-spiced skirt steak, and battered fish inside handmade tortillas.

Chicago Restaurant Guide

Everyone knows that Chicago has outstanding deep dish pizza and hot dogs, but throughout the city, there is a veritable banquet of appealing options that go beyond this traditional Chicago fare. Some of the hottest chefs in the world call this city home and the Chicago restaurants at which they ply their trade are the "it" spots for innovative and cutting edge dining.

With Lake Michigan lapping up against the edge of the city, Chicago's restaurants have access to some of the most delicious freshwater fish in the world. Few restaurants do fresh seafood better than GT Fish & Oyster. Although traditional dishes, including chowder and fish and chips, are on the menu, guests keep returning for the restaurant's more unusual offerings. The brandade croquettes mix freshly caught brandade with just the right amount of herbs and breadcrumbs for a modern take on the fishcake, while the fresh oysters have a delicious homemade sauce drizzled over the top.

For freshly made pie and hamburgers the size of a dinner plate, head over to Grange Hall Burger Bar. More adventurous diners can choose the nine-ounce burgers, while those wanting something lighter might choose the six-ounce. Beef is not the only burger choice, as the restaurant also offers wild rice and veggie burgers and turkey burgers. The pie menu changes every month, and each slice comes with a dollop of homemade ice cream on top.

The Slurping Turtle wants to change the way people think about Asian cuisine. This upscale Chicago restaurant offers unique dishes, including chicken fried in duck fat and a salad topped with delicate pieces of freshly cooked octopus. Those in the mood for something sweet can try the cream puff filled with a rich and tasty coconut cream.

Modern cuisine and French cooking come together at Goosefoot. This restaurant shows how much restaurants in the city have changed in recent years. Every dish on the menu offers a twist on traditional French dishes, such as the lobster and mushroom entree in a curry-infused broth. Eating at this restaurant is a unique experience, as the menu changes with the seasons.

Now is a hot time for dining in Chicago because its chefs are constantly introducing new and innovative dishes. Whether it's dining out for a special occasion or relaxing with friends, there is Chicago food for every situation.
