Alyssa was an amazing server. She explained all the menu items thoroughly and checked on us frequently. Ask for her section she is superb! The birria beef tacos were amazing, truly authentic taste. The chicken birria tacos were kind of dry (that’s why we gave it 4 stars instead of 5). The margaritas are KILLER and make sure you get a tequila flight! Thank you Alyssa!

My cousin and I found this place on tiktok and thought it would be nice to try. Immediately upon sitting down, we got the best waiter ever, Alfonzo. Alfonzo was so kind, so helpful, and actually paid attention and listened to us! He helped us pick items and even suggested these bomb plant based Al Pastor tacos for me. I told him I was vegetarian and he laid out all the options for me with no hesitation. He was more than patient when it came to answering our questions and on top of all that the food was great!! I give this place a 10/10, and having Alfonzo is a must. He really the MVP !! My cousin tried the birria tacos, a hit.

This is a gem up North! The margaritas NEVER disappoint. The waitress was very kind and helpful. My only complaint is that they don't have enough options for those who don't eat beef and pork. Outside of that, I'd probably give it five stars. If you've never been, go ahead and give this place a try. When I did eat beef, I often ordered the steak nachos. Definitely were delicious. I've had the birria tacos too. They were also quite delicious!

Cesar’s is an awesome spot for both drinks and food! While you’re there, you have to try one of their special birria entrees or select from one of their classic mexican dishes. The birria itself is tender and super flavorful, and we loved the cheesiness. The the piña colada in the fresh pineapple is a must! It was so deliciously smooth and the perfect amount of sweetness.Check out all the details below:TEQUILA FLIGHTSChoose 1 from each category, 3 shots total.

The margaritas are definitely the star here. They have good flavors and they’re always delicious I can only handle 1 mega because they sneak up on you! I love the atmosphere, usually other diners are friendly and having a good time. Service is always good. Last time I was there for lunch and had the Queso Birria. It was flavorful and very good. Would definitely get it again. Also enjoyed the fajitas and nacho fries but the Birria was my favorite. Had the churros and cookie for dessert. Both were yummy. I was stuffed and still ate the dessert so that says a lot! Some of my favorite margaritas in the city.

Cesar's is hand's down one of my favorite spots to grab some quality margaritas and mexican food. I've been coming here for years, and I will say the food has definitely improved so much since I first started coming here! The quesabirria was incredibly cheesy and the fajitas were delicious. Their portions are generous, and you will NOT regret having a marg with your meal.

In Lakeview there a few good neighborhood Mexican restaurants and taco places. Cesar's Killer Margaritas is definitely one of them. I've been here twice in the last year, and I've enjoyed each of my visits. On my most resent trip, I tried some interesting dishes that you should try if you go here. First, I started with a frozen blueberry margarita. Of course Cesar's is famous for its huge margaritas and in a ton of different flavors. I typically get a raspberry margarita, but I enjoyed the blueberry one as it wasn't too sweet. I then tried the torti pizza. It's basically a tortilla with melted cheese and toppings. I enjoyed it, it was kinda like an open faced quesadilla or Mexican style thin pizza. I don't think I've seen anything like it at any other Mexican restaurant. I also enjoyed the carne asada and fish tacos I got. For dessert I got churros that came out hot and crispy.On my previous trip I tried their version of quesa-birria tacos. It was not a traditional quesa-birria as the meat was steak, but I enjoyed the treatment of the steak in melty cheese and crispy tacos.On all of my visits, the service was fast and friendly and food came out quickly and hot. I also enjoyed the many TVs that they have around the restaurant and in the bar area. On my last visit I watched Monday Night Football. If you are a sports fan, their bar is good place to catch a game.In sum, this good neighborhood Mexican restaurant in Lakeview that needs to on your list.
