Hostess was extremely rude — yelled at me for using open table because it “is harder on them”.

It suited our needs to be close to the theater for an 8 pm show. Convenient, close, fast service. We were seated right away. Server was charming and professional.
What I didn’t like was the charge for the salsa and chips. Yes. It’s on the menu. Yes, we willingly paid for it. Most Mexican restaurants provide this is as part of the experience and charm. And, the drinks were below average. The tacos and gauc were average.
Would I do it again? Maybe - just would not do tacos or chips & salsa. It just wouldn’t be at the top of my list. Too many options in Chicago

It was my first time at Broken English (Lake St. location) and I really liked it. Upon stepping in the restaurant, the decor makes you forget all of the steel and concrete of the big city just outside. Service was exceptionally friendly, helpful and energetic. The food was delicious. Great selection of tequilas. I'll definitely be back!

Prices were high for the amount of food that was served. Also, we were surprised about the cost for drinks; if you have a large(r) group and you order large-quantity drinks (like a pitcher of margaritas) be sure to check on the price first.

Loved the food, however for $9, the guacamole is too little. I loved my carne asada burrito and the salsa options. The horchata was perfect! It is too loud in there to have a conversation.

The food was fantastic and the support staff was very helpful. I would have given a five star rating however we didn’t see our server at all really. He just took our order and brought us our bill. The server at the next table seemed very welcoming and helpful however.

Food very good and reasonably priced. Service quick and efficient. Only complaint was the noise level. Couldn't hear a thing. Prob due in part to it being Loolapalooza weekend and we were there on Saturday night. Would definitely recommend and return.

I can’t believe I waited this long to try this place. It always seems to be busy when I walk by. We ordered a plate of 12 vegetarian tacos for a party of five. Absolutely delicious. Fun atmosphere. Can’t wait to go back!

The food was delicious as was the Mango Margaritas. But be warned the margaritas are small and expensive especially if you get flavored they add an up charge for that but don’t tell you until you get the bill. Better if buying the pitcher.

I definitely recommend BE if you're looking for drinks and also happen to want to munch on tacos. We came here for dinner but were disappointed with the food selection. The pork al pastor was delicious, but it doesn't come with beans and rice. They have great happy hour deals, too. Wouldn't recommend BE for someone looking for a full on Mexican dinner, but definitely for drinks, a fun place to hang out & drink, or if you just wanted a few tacos.

It looks fantastic, colorful, fun inside & the servers were nice, but the food was awful. We love trying new restaurants & are open to flavor variety & a range of pricing. Here - pretty much everything - including drinks - is pre-packaged when tacos are best w fresh ingredients. Chips & guac app included slightly stale chips & not even a full very small bowl of guac for $9. Whatever. Three of us split a quesadilla & 3 types of tacos. Quesadilla was by far the “highlight” bc it tasted like a bit jazzier version of quesadilla from just abt anywhere. Server offered a free dessert for our incorrect order, but then we were charged for it. Mistakes happen, no biggie. But again - staff good, cute place, food bad.

We arrived about 20 minutes before our reservation, but they were able to seat us early. The food was delicious. While we ate inside their outdoor seating also looked nice.

Food was great! Got there on a Tuesday which has two dollar tacos. Otherwise it can be a little pricey. Only downside was our server was hard to get occasionally. Took a while to get our check

I have been here a couple of times. One time for a date and other times with friends. The tacos are fairly priced and taste good. I wasn’t a big fan of the barbacoa tacos due to the texture though. Additionally, it can get a little loud during happy hour, but it’s a good environment with friendly waiters!

Tacos weren’t that great; shells weren’t warmed up enough so they still had a rawness to them. Temp of the proteins (we had shrimp, fried chicken, and fish) weren’t hot. Seemed all pre cooked and just put together when the ticket went in. Because our tacos came within minutes of ordering them. It’s $8 for 2 tacos and each shrimp taco had four small shrimps and a lot of picked onion. Felt like a pickle onion taco. So the value didn’t feel there either for what you get. We ordered chips and gauc, but never got them. Definitely think there are others that’s better if you want Mexican in downtown Chicago.

Visiting from Arizona we didn’t have huge expectation on the food, but really wanted some margaritas. The pitcher of margaritas definitely delivered! Steak quesadilla was pretty good, nachos were just okay.
Our problem was really with our waitress. She took our order and we never saw her again till she handed us the bill. We ordered salsa which we never received, we order tacos which we never received, and we had no forks so we pulled them off another table. None of these things could be resolved because she never checked in on us. Overall, service with that particular waitress was poor but environment and margaritas were great.
