Home of the Killer Margaritas!

If you haven’t tried our signature Killer Margaritas, you’re truly missing out on the best in Chicago. Cesar’s Mexican restaurant and margarita bar serves up secret concoctions of ultimate goodness that will thrill any palate in the downtown / Lakeview area.

We have about 20 killer flavors such as lime, mango, strawberry, and blue curacao, as well as seasonal flavors like chamoy, watermelon, and sour apple. Served on the rocks or frozen.

Order a flight of margaritas or just a single large margarita, or try the new Super Mega-Rita if you feel like sharing.

We encourage you to get creative. Try the raspberry blended with a sugar rim. Or maybe you’d prefer the guava on ice with chile salt. Whatever your mood, we’ve got a margarita to match it.

You don’t even have to come into our authentic Mexican restaurant anymore to enjoy our killer margaritas. Stay home and order margaritas to-go if you live in the downtown Lakeview area of Chicago.

I’ve been here many times throughout the years and honestly tonight was the best! Came with my family to celebrate my sisters birthday and Alyssa, our server, was so nice and thoughtful! Brought us complimentary fideo sopa and came with free shots at the end of our meal. Absolutely love the attention to detail in celebrating my sisters 21st birthday and will definitely be back 🙂Thank you so much Cesars and Alyssa!

Cesar's truly does have a killer margarita. Lots of flavors available frozen or on the rocks. I could take or leave the food but it isn't bad, especially after a few margs. We really like sitting outside with a cold drink here!
