    Generous mojitos (we like the N27) and margaritas (try the fruity El Corazon) go down easy. Among entrées, recent faves included grilled salmon with spinach and Pacific bluenose grouper huachinango. Read more

    Clubgoers will appreciate the better-than-average drinks at this salsa hot-spot. Order the Chadwick mojito: sweet and gingery with a subtle after bite of habañero pepper: http://tmoutchi.us/13EV7jr Read more

    Great food, great drinks, great atmosphere. LOVED the music! The dance floor is way too small for the crowd but we had a blast either way.

    Order before 6:15 p.m. and you’ll score three courses plus two cocktails or two glasses of wine per person (or a pitcher of sangría per couple) for $27.

    Off the 20.11 menu the croquetas and the grouper huachinago were delicious! I have to go back and try a couple more items. The menu runs from now till February 24th.

    Be sure to try the creative cocktails: the Cazuela, an "adult Gatorade," and the Orient Express especially. The Bloody Mary is made with herbs grown at the bar and fresh tomatoes. Read more

    Great food and awesome music. Gets very loud in the back by the tables. You can talk more by bar. Would go back.

    Best Hispanic club and best mojitos I've had in Chicago. Though they don't compare with Miami and Puerto Rico. 🍈
