About Us

CHI LAN GO is a Spanish word that refers to a person from El Distrito Federal, Mexico City, who represents the city's unique style and culture. At Chilango Mexican Street Food, this unique quality makes us stand out from typical taco joints as one of the freshest, tastiest and most fun loving Mexican restaurants in Chicago.

Our mission is to serve quality dishes in our awesome dining space inspired by modern Mexican-American culture. Our flavorful meals are served-up quickly by our hardworking chefs so you can savor your time at the most popular Mexican restaurant in Little Italy.

Quick Taste

“The menu is fresh and appetizing. Traditional Mexican food with a little twist pounding with flavor. Tried their fish tacos, burritos and Mexican corn and love them all. Service is attentive and welcoming. One of the best Mexican restaurants I’ve been to by far.”
