    The guacamole is really interesting. It is topped with items one typically wouldn't expect.

    The hazelnut churros (and the churros in general) are delicious. Same for the hot chocolate. Honestly everything I've ever had here has been good, so just order whatever strikes your fancy.

    Best lunch in Chicago. Try the Ahogada, it's amazing. The side salad is works great if you want something fresh to the hot sauce.

    Takeout ordering is at the front, so don't wait in a long line. That said, the waiting for your takeout could not be more uncomfortable since there is almost nowhere to stand.

    The best torta sandwiches here. Flavor explosions galore. Do not skip getting a churro, the chocolate sauce is to die for & they come out fresh and warm. Margarita was just ok here.
