Fish tacos
We call these “killer tacos” because any other kind of taco is just, well, lifeless in comparison. The secret is the way we cook the tortilla, with your choice of flour or corn tortilla. Plus the fact that we use only the freshest ingredients prepared by Cesar’s crew dedicated to making the perfect taco, prepared according to our family recipes. It’s why Cesar’s in the Lakeview neighborhood is a perennial Chicago favorite for over 25 years.

If it’s a taco you want, we’ve got the killer taco just for you. Take a look at our mouthwatering taco options; as good as these descriptions sound, they taste even better.

All Cesar’s selections are available for take-out, delivery, or dine-in. Our tacos are a great choice for an authentic Mexican lunch or dinner. Come in for both! We even have brunch tacos on weekends! Whatever time of day, Cesar’s tacos provide a killer taste experience.

Shrimp Tacos

Light Side/Healthy Tacos

Everybody knows that Mexican cuisine is delicious, but it is also stuffed (literally!) with a variety of nutritious foods. If you’re looking for something a little lighter than traditional fare, these healthy tacos will tickle your taste buds.

Brunch Tacos

Brunch Tacos

What’s better than tacos for lunch or dinner? Brunch tacos! Served every weekend here at Cesar’s in the Lakeview neighborhood.

Ingrid was fantastic and helped our first experience here be absolutely outstanding!!! We wanted to order a pitcher of margaritas and Ingrid recommended Mango, which we got frozen — so incredibly delicious! We could really taste the fresh mango! We ordered guacamole & chips, costillas, and fish tacos. Everything was perfect and Ingrid was very attentive and professional. We are visiting Chicago but look forward to coming again! Gracias, Ingrid! Definitely go to Cesar’s if you’re in Chicago!!!!

I love this place! They food and drinks are top-notch. My only problem with them is the service. They are always so busy. They do not accept reservations. It's first come, first serve so it maybe a little wait depending on the time of day. I don't know if they prepare for the crowd, but the service can be a tad bit slow. Please don't let a large group come because now they are slower. When they bring my mega margarita, then I am okay with waiting for my food. I have had their tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, and burritos. All were delicious! I like that they season their meat because so many places don't. If you are looking for a place with delicious food and nice cocktails, this is the spot. Also, if you know anything about the North side of Chicago parking, it is hard to find, so be prepared to do a little walking. I promise that these minor details are worth it. Just don't be in a hurry because you may need takeout, and you can also get your margarita to go as well.

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!

I really like the food here, I always get the same thing. Steak quesadilla, birria tacos, queso fundido with only poblano peppers (no mushroom) and Jamaica...

Stopped here for lunch and had a great time. The staff is super friendly and welcoming.The place gives of a cool vibe.We were given chips and salsa to munch on while we decide on the menu. The salsa was so tasty, I could just keep eating the chips and salsa. We ordered the fiesta platter, shrimp tacos , and chicken fajita. For drinks we had the pina colada and mango margarita. Each of the dishes were a 10/10. The tacos were so mouthwatering delicious.Absolutely loved it.The mango margarita was by far the best margarita I have ever had. It deserves the name 'killer margarita'. You have to go to Cesar's Chicago and have their crazy good margarita!!

Cesar's was great!! It was so lively inside and you can definitely tell everyone was having a good time. Everyone is so nice there and really take their time explaining the menu. We ordered the Killer Burria and chicken burrito. These are the best tacos l've ever had!! My fiance is a big burrito guy and he really enjoyed it. We also ordered the fruity flight and the chamoy margarita. I've never enjoyed margaritas more they aren't kidding when they say home of the killer Margaritas! Don't even get me started on their churros 😍🤤
