Que Rico (Restaurant, Lakeview)
Location: 2814 N. Southport Ave
Reservations: Available, but not usually necessary
This no-frills restaurant is guaranteed to satisfy a serious craving for good Mexican food. The decor is minimal, but authentic. A small dining room in front connected to a large open space in the back offers plenty of tables, so there’s rarely a long wait. There’s also a small outdoor patio that’s open during summer months. The fajitas are amazing, as are the margaritas — you’ll probably find it hard to have just one! It’s a kid-friendly spot, so it’s perfect for a night out with the family, though it wouldn’t be first on my list as a romantic date spot. Buen aproveche!
