Plenty of new Mexican restaurants opened their doors this year, but Mi Tocaya is one to watch. The tacos are the main attraction, including the spicy Campechano stuffed with al pastor, chorizo and carne asada and garnished with salsa and a squeeze of lime. Pair your order with a reposado tequila margarita, an easy summer sipper. But the best part of dining here is the open kitchen, where you’ll spot chef Diana Davila crafting unique regional specialties. And hey, the cozy outdoor patio doesn’t hurt either.

Vitals: 

Atmosphere: Chef Davila makes this place feel like home with an extra special twist of controlled chaos and color in her vibrant Mexican kitchen. 

What to eat: Tacos are at the top of our list, but we’re certainly not saying no to the queso and guacamole. 

What to drink: Margaritas rule the roost with a draft and stirred option.

Where to sit: The space is quaint and cozy, so it’s likely you won’t have a choice in the matter. On a warm day, the patio is perfect, but you can’t beat the hustle and bustle happening inside.

I am lucky enough to visit Chicago quite often, and within all the Mexican restaurants that the city can offer this has to be my favorite. All the tacos are delicious, If you need help choosing from the Menu, the staff are very happy to help recommending whats fresh on the menu . I went for the modern options but theres also "The Classics" , the atmosphere is very vibrant and is a fun place to spend the evening, is very small and If you eat solo, you feel a bit that you are always able to chat to someone. Definitely worth trying .

I absolutely love to support female chefs--and only a crazy person doesn't love Mexican food--but this place is missing a few key components necessary to success. The biggest issue I can see is service. I live down the block and have been here three times, and every time, the service was pretty bad--taking 1.5 hours to get my food and drinks or at least 45 minutes for a drink order. 


The food and drinks are good, but not incredible. I do appreciate the price point on the cocktails though, which pack quite a punch. I want to like this place more, but they need to fix their service issues soon.

This restaurant is very small and it makes you feel like you're in Mexico. The drink menu is incredible and they're only $8 a drink! 

The food was also very good. Definitely get their chips and salsa!
