Restaurant Review – Cesar’s

When the going gets tough, the tough get Mexican food. That’s how that saying goes, right? This week took me to Cesar’s: Home of the Killer Margarita. I went to the location on Broadway (2924 N Broadway). The restaurant is gigantic, with tables spread over three floors. We came in on a weekday afternoon, so we had our pick of tables. Our waiter brought us complimentary bowls of the Sopa de Fideo: angel hair pasta simmered in a light chicken and tomato broth, topped with cilantro. It was absolutely delicious; the perfect way to start a meal on a cold Chicago day. My dad decided on the Bare-It-All-Rito, the same as a traditional burrito without the tortilla. The large bowl was filled with rice, black beans, lettuce, sour cream, cheese, topped with pork and fresh pico de gallo. The portion was huge and he said it was very tasty! My mom and I shared the Spinach Quesadillas. The fluffy flour tortillas were stuffed with melted chihuahua cheese, sautéed spinach, mushrooms, onions, and tomatoes, served with a side of chipotle ranch. These were very tasty and the portion was perfect to share. My friend ordered the Mini Burritos and I immediately had order envy. The order includes three mini sized burritos stuffed with beans, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and your choice of meat (she chose chicken). They are served with a side of rice, beans, guacamole, and sour cream. She loved them and I know I’ll be ordering them the next time I visit Cesar’s!
