Tequila and Killer Margaritas

The Best in Tequilas Chicago, IL


Best Margaritas & Tequila Drinks in Town

Of course, tequila is an essential ingredient in Cesar’s famous KILLER margaritas, known for both the quality of the tequila as well as the amount of tequila.

Cesar tequila is available for delivery, pick-up, and dine-in, except for flights, which are dine-in only. Located in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago, Cesar’s tequila and killer margaritas are the best in town.

The Finest Tequilas

As the Mexican restaurant of choice in Chicago, Cesar’s selects only the finest tequila brands to serve our customers. In fact, Cesar’s staff makes an annual trip to visit the Herradura Tequila Distillery in Mexico to handpick the finest tequila for our customers. We even take home entire barrels of tequila distilled just for Cesar’s Killer Margaritas, including the Herradura Double-Barrel Reposado.

We recognize that there are a variety of tastes for different tequila brands and different price points that are more attractive to our patrons. Whatever your preference, we have the tequila to make your evening at Cesar’s special.

History of Tequila

Tequila is a distilled beverage made from the blue agave plant. The name comes from the city of, not surprisingly, Tequila, where the native red volcanic soil in the surrounding areas of the Jaliscan highlands is particularly well suited to growing blue agave. Mexican law requires that any drink branding itself as tequila must be produced in Jalisco (though there are some exceptions). At Cesar’s, we only serve the highest quality of tequila, with the widest variety available in Chicago according to whether aged a year or more, rested between 2 to 11 months, or bottled in 4 weeks or less.

You must be 21 or older to order.

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!

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.

I’ve been coming to Cesar’s for a few years now, and they never fail to disappoint. Their margaritas are def killer in the best way! They have a large flavor selection, and always have new options to choose from. I love that they offer flights, this is def a great way to try several flavors. For food I recommend the carne asada, def a great portion for the price. Overall everything is delicious here. The staff is also always nice and welcoming!
