Came here for dinner craving some Mexican food. Very casual but friendly place. Decor pretty uninspiring. Was surprised that you order your food at the bar rather than at the table. You can sit on high chairs or share low tables with others if there...More

You need to stop looking around for places to eat and get yourself over to Xoco. GO! This was quite possibly the BEST meal I had in Chicago. We visited around 5:30 on a Saturday and there was no wait and tables available. It started...More

I love ordering chicharon wherever I go. It's a great conversation piece of a meal and usually a savory treat. Sadly this was the blandest chicharon I've ever had. The sauce was too spicy and not evenly coated, which made some pieces blazing hot and...More

Xoco means "Little Sister" and though it is the smallest of the Rick Bayless restaurants, it is by no means to be ignored. Although ordered at a counter, from their sopas (soups) to their sandwiches (tortas) all the selections are delicious and made to order....More

I was so happy to eat here. We wanted great food but didn't want to have to pay a fine dining cost. We had excellent food and a wonderful experience - at a very reasonable cost. I would highly recommend this place to everyone. You...More
