Neighborhood Knockout: Broken English Lincoln Park

April 20th was the grand opening of Broken English Lincoln Park, the third Chicago location, and holy queso, it is amazing. The restaurant sits on the corner of Wrightwood and Lincoln in a cool teal building- you can’t miss it, but we’re telling you, don’t miss it.

The walls are covered with incredible artwork from Chicago native, JC Rivera, the ceilings lined with colorful piñatas, and then there’s this perfect little outdoor patio with margaritas and sangria on tap! And in case you weren’t already hooked, they’ve got games such as Ms. Pacman, foosball and shuffleboard…as if I needed yet another reason to stay.

As far as food goes, the guacamole and queso fundido are both a definite ‘yes’ for starters.  I mean, the queso has chorizo, sautéed onion and poblano peppers, Mexican cheese blend and toasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds). Their tacos come in orders of two, or they have an option for a family style taco tray that gets you 6 for $20 or 12 for $38. For dessert, it’s all about the “El Puro Churro” – a massive cup of caramel gelato served with chocolate sauce, seasonal jam and cinnamon-sugar dusted churros. Yep.

To top it off, they’re taking Taco Tuesday AND Thursday to another level with $2 tacos. More specials and food deets here.

Aside from the overall awesomeness of the food, ambiance and games, one of my favorite things is the smell of {slightly} burned rosemary used for the fancy cocktails and the antique decor that covers the shelves and hangs from the ceiling.

It’s safe to say, this is our new neighborhood happy place. See you there for Cinco de Mayo!
