Las Fuentes’ patio is one of the hidden gems of the north side.
The patio is huge, decorated in awesome garish Mexican decor, and features a huge mural painted in the side of the building. Mexican music pipes through speakers and a large stone fountain serves as a centerpiece. A diverse crowd of families, groups, and couples sip margaritas in a laid-back atmosphere.
Las Fuentes service is top notch. The owner is extremely friendly and it’s evident that his excellent customer service trickles down to the rest of the staff.
The food is spectacular – Mexican favorites like burritos, enchiladas, and fajitas but also more creative dishes like a stone bowl filled with steak, chicken, and cactus with a spicy chipotle sauce.
Definitely one of the best spots in Lincoln Park/Lakeview to sip a margarita, eat some excellent Mexican food, and enjoy a nice summer day.
