Part of Ballyhoo Hospitality

From the Ballyhoo Hospitality team that brought you Gemini, and Coda di Volpe comes Old Pueblo. Located on a quaint tree-lined street in Lincoln Park, this homage to the rustic, laidback cantinas of Northern Mexico features flour tortillas made-in-house for its tacos, cheese crisps (think Mexican pizza, only better), burritos and chimichangas. Mesquite wood fuels its wood-burning grill for heartier dishes. For its drinks, Old Pueblo relaxes a bit on authenticity and focuses on the fiesta with a variety of margaritas available by the glass and pitcher.
