Irazu is Chicago’s first and only Costa Rican restaurant!
Love the outdoor space and of course the food...delicious. Really great black beans
The chifrijo is the bomb. I could eat it as my entire meal and still go back for more.
Authentic Costa Rican food! Every bite was so fresh and delicious. I've never seen avocados so green and tasty! The craving for their food is unexplainable, it's a must try!
Oatmeal milkshake and nachiTicos!!!!
Milkshakes are great, but food and service not so good.
I tried a little of everything my table had ordered and it was all delicious. The empanadas were the best I've ever had.
Pork chop & palmito salad AMAZING!!!
The oatmeal shake is wow and the appetizers with the pork skin, Pico de Gallo with rice and beans, too good
Possibly the last great bastion of BYOB in Bucktown, Irazu will reward your patience for a table.
The oatmeal shake is GREAT!!! A chicago favorite pepito sandwich!!
The burrito was really yummy. If you bring vodka/rum/tequila they'll mix it into a delicious smoothie with whatever fruit they have around!
They have a great private room across the street which is also BYOB. Perfect for birthday parties. And yes...oatmeal shake!
Solid food. BYOB and cash only.
Just had the el tico and it was a great combination of food. The waiter service and the upbeat musical ambience is wonderful!
Start with the empanadas ! They're crisp and flavorful. I got the vegetarian plate for my meal - seasonal veggie was zucchini- everything was very fresh. Huge portions but great prices. Byob!
OATMEAL SOY SHAKES, OH MY GOD
The guy fieri special is $15 and can easily satisfy two people!
The best chicken soup in Chicago hands down. That simple.
Wow! I couldn’t recommend this place more. The casado is much like what’s served in Costa Rica. Oatmeal shake was to die for! It’s cash only, but they have an ATM. Great atmosphere and service, too.
The Chicken Casado is bitchin'!
The food was really great! But if you're looking for dessert don't let anyone convince you to get the oatmeal shake. It's not a shake, tastes like chunky less sweet horchata.
Really handsome waiters. :)
The oatmeal shake was incredible!
I line the oatmeal milkshakes! #delicious
Food is delicious. Had the Casado Chicken, yummy. Empanadas, very good!
Chicharrones and gallo pinto come in a close second to San Jose, CR.
3 words: mango watermelon shake. trust me.
Heard from someone that place is good
The avena milkshake is delicious!! And Omar, one of the waiters, is the nicest guy there
The pepito sandwich is amazing
They should make their items order-able from a smart phone by adding them to the app "appay biz". That way, I can order ahead using "appay"!!!!!!!!!!!!
Get the LAVA drink!! You won't regret it!
Hotest waiter! Love it!
Oatmeal banana shakes are damn tasty!
Try their oatmeal shake with another flavor.. I'd recommend banana
Oatmeal Blackberry Shake, small cabbage salad - delicious meal on heated patio
Order the chicken pasado, save a few tortilla chips, crunch them up and sprinkle on your dish. Adds an extra texture to an already delicious meal.
If going with a large group, call in advance and let the restaurant decide the menu for a family style dinner
Plantains to die for
BYOB. You can get wine across the street.
Definitely get the oatmeal shake. I prefer it made with water to the milk or soy milk options.
The avena (oatmeal) shake is one of the best shakes in the city. BYOB joint. Cash money only. No plastic.
Salsa music was on point!
Oatmeal shake was TOO good, as well as the casada and spinach and cheese empanadas
