Foursquare Tips

  • Queso fundido is a must. The meals in bowls are nice too.
  • Service here can be improved by a lot. It just really dampened the whole Xoco experience compared to the downtown Xoco.
  • The guy with the Salvador Dali mustache knows his churros. Pistachio flavored churros forever!!
  • Everything is good here. Scallops in mojo verde are succulent. Be careful with the habanero salsa it's very hot. For dessert the churros are really good, but my favorite is the pistachio tres leches.
  • Ask to sit in Paco's section, super friendly and nice. You might spot Rick Bayless who lives in the neighborhood and frequents his Wicker Park location.
  • Really slow service. Showed up at lunch and it felt like it took 10 years to eat. And there were 10 people at the whole place.
  • The Tortas are the best in the city, but the service sucks. They basically rushed us out of the restaurant & the churros tasted like old burnt oil
  • Purse hooks under the tables!
  • The Mexican food
  • pork belly chilaquiles are the bomb. hot chocolate was like drinking syrup. good but way too chocolatey & thick to drink very much of it.
  • Ahogado torta is awesome!
  • Everything.
  • If you visit Fonda Frontera dont forget ask for a drink made with Pueblo Viejo Tequila.
  • Choose from five concoctions, and that's on top of their three coffee drinks. If you want a spicy kick, order the Aztec with chile and allspice.
  • Best vegan greens.
  • Delicious brunch! Their wild mushroom torta is excellent.
  • Cochinita pibil. It has its own t-shirts.
  • It's known for tortas but others plates were good too. Try the daily special. It's a bit expensive than what I anticipated (generally around $20, $12ish for tortas)
  • The Easter colors reflect in a Margarita mixed with Pueblo Viejo. Get yours here at XOCO!
  • If you want to freshen up with a delicious cocktail at XOCO, try a Paloma mixed with Pueblo Viejo Blanco.
