Our Menu and Cuisine
Margaritas is renowned for serving the most authentic and delicious Mexican food in Oak Park and the surrounding Chicago area. Each dish is lovingly prepared from scratch in our kitchen. We’d love to make you dinner tonight!
There are some basic ingredients that are found in nearly every traditional Mexican dish: corn tortillas, beans, chili, and lime. Check for their presence and you have a pretty reliable indicator of the authenticity of the food.
Corn is the undeniable King of Mexican cuisine and is used as the basis for the ubiquitous tortillas. Meanwhile, beans are equally competent at finding themselves a role in your meal, even if only as a side dish. Flavor is thankfully high on Mexico’s menu, with cilantro and onions used particularly heavily, but the two most common additions are chili and lime.
