About us

Step into Takito Street, where the vibrant spirit of Mexican street food meets a contemporary, playful atmosphere in the heart of Lincoln Park. Our menu boasts handcrafted, made-to-order artisanal street tacos, flavorful fajitas, and a tempting selection of fresh fruit margaritas—signature offerings that have defined Takito's reputation. Beyond the extraordinary fare, we're set to unveil a range of innovative dining experiences, promising to set a new standard in the Chicago culinary landscape.


Located at 2423 North Lincoln Street, across the intersection from DePaul’s newly renovated and expanded performance theater building and on the “famous alley where John Dillinger was killed” from the Biograph theater, the restaurant is certain to appeal to students, theatergoers, and the ever-growing neighborhood of Lincoln Park.

The Restaurant

With its fresh, light-hearted approach to Mexican cuisine, Takito Street will quickly become a neighborhood hangout. This space will transport you to a vibrant outdoor Mexican street market complete with a retro Vespa. Diners will enjoy classic black and white cinema films on the walls. The center marquee complements its approach with playful quotes. The Takito brand has been known as a leader in restaurant design & cuisine elements.


Mario Ponce, who brought you Bar Takito & Takito Kitchen, boast a seasoned opening team collaboration with Valerie Sanchez (Bar Takito, Takito Kitchen & 1st Response), renowned Chef Dudley Nieto, culinary veteran Costas Juarez (veteran culinarian) & Jaime Castor (mixologist) who have been with Takito for nearly seven (7) years.


Takito Street diners can look forward to traveling to modern Mexico via their taste buds, and scents. Guests will love the flavor-forward satiating tacos and variety of award-winning fresh-made margaritas. This full-service, yet fast-casual concept promises to be easily affordable and showcase some of the “can’t live without” recipes from other Takito restaurants, which are gluten-free, organic, and primarily sourced from sustainable Midwest farms.
