La Cantina Grill, Chicago Mexican restaurant since 2006.

We are La Cantina Grill, an authentic Mexican restaurant in Chicago’s South Loop. We are located near Soldier Field and McCormick Place at 1911 S. Michigan Avenue. We have a full-service restaurant, bar, outdoor patio, and offer carryout, delivery, and catering.

La Cantina is a South Loop staple serving high quality traditional Mexican food since 2006. La Cantina has a full-service bar, fresh and inventive margaritas, an assortment of craft and Mexican beers served with genuine hospitality.

Some of La Cantina’s signature dishes include traditional enchiladas, a wide range of tacos, fajitas, nacho platters as well as traditional chicken, steak and seafood dishes such as Zamora, Tampiqueña, Bistec a la Mexicana, Lomo Saltado (Lomo a la Cantina), Lomo en Salsa de Arbol and much more.

La Cantina is an independently owned restaurant. The owners are at the restaurant almost daily to welcome you and help provide you with caring service.

La Cantina is proud to have a large  vegan menu for you to choose from with Upton’s Seitan Chorizo and Ground Beef, Good Planet Mozzarella vegan cheese, Tofutti vegan sour cream, and other vegan options.

Weather permitting, our outdoor sidewalk cafe is a great place to relax and take in bustling Michigan Avenue while sipping on a freshly made margarita, homemade sangria, or one of our craft mezcal cocktails, and enjoying authentic Mexican cuisine.

Of course we love to host in our dining room or bar, but we are also happy to bring La Cantina to you! We offer delivery as well as catering options for your home, office, or event. Call us at 312-842-1911 to discuss your catering order or you can simply order online and we’ll deliver it to you.

Whether your visit to La Cantina is to enjoy a margarita and complementary chips and salsa, or to have a luxurious, authentic Mexican meal, La Cantina welcomes you to enjoy the best Mexican food in Chicago!
