Excellent margaritas & plenty strong! My husband had 2 El Jefes, & was still able to walk & talk afterward, so they are not excessively strong. AGAVE QUESO CHICKEN, I had this, & Chicken Enchiladas with different sauces on each enchilada were excellent! Chips & salsa were yummy & generous. Our server packed up our leftovers & gave us fresh chips to take home. Uncle Julio’s is probably our favorite Mexican restaurant in Chicago. More

I used to pass by this place everyday and I finally decided to go in. I went in for lunch, around 3.30pm on a Monday..I even made a reservation just in case it was busy..I was surprised to walk in an be the only customer..I had to look around for someone to ask if they are even open. Finally someone asked me if I need help. When I said I was by myself the server was very surprised. It took a while to place an order..food was great but there was a gentleman in the restaurant that was singing and not that he had a nice voice, I would have enjoyed it if he did. It was pretty disturbing.. again food was great..service was a little slow..I am sure that at night time and over the weekends the place it booming. I might give it another chance when it’s warmer out so I can enjoy the patio. More

We popped into Distilled before a movie at Webster. We had planned on Webster Wine Bar, but I had researched and knew it had moved before we got there. Distilled was good, quiet for 8/8:30p on a Friday, but better than loud! Service was prompt and very friendly. They had put a cute "RESERVED" sign on our table with my name. We shared an app and sandwich because we wanted to save room for greasy buttery popcorn and giant soda. :-) So, we split the Avocado Egg Rolls which were very tasty and the Bartender Chicken Sandwich. I had a Maker's Old Fashion, which was very good. The waitress suggested I try the tap Old Fashion, which I did and not so good but also more expensive. We'd go back. If you're looking for wine, do not go, all they have is some stuff on tap, which for you vinophiles I suspect will disappoint. Pre-movie or lunch in the neighborhood I'd head on over. More

The beer selection was great. I had 3 different beers, all recommended by our server. The food was good, like pub food, but slightly better. You don't come here for the food, so you are not wowed by it, nor are you disappointed. It accompanies the beer well. And that's what you really come here for. We'll be back. More
