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.

Between the Spinach Enchiladas, Steak Burrito and the Carne Asada there were No Leftovers. Everything was a 10 outta 10. The Agave and Banana Margaritas on the Rocks were AMAZING. Best Mexican Cuisine in The USA…

Drinks and food are delicious. I split a Queso Birria Torta with my husband and it was perfect afternoon snack with a Michelada and a Mango Mega Killer Margarita. Plus one margarita to go! 🤪 First time here, will definitely be coming back.
