About Us

CHI LAN GO is...

 Chilango 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.

Chilango’s menu offers something for everyone. Try our delicious burritos or amazing empanadas. Order our fresh seafood tacos or veggie tacos, tortas, al pastor quesadillas or a big order of steak nachos. Then, quench your thirst with one of our aguas frescas (fresh fruit beverages), in flavors like mango, guava and horchata, made fresh daily.

Visit Chilango for a refreshing change of pace or, if you are in Lincoln Park, stop by our brother restaurant LITO's for delicious empanadas and more! Order catering, take-out or delivery, or join us at the restaurant to see why reviewers say we have ​‘great food and amazing service for the whole family.’ .
