Located right next to the Main CTA stop, we at La Principal want to be the best spot to go to for the highest quality Mexican food with the perfect atmosphere to match. With a full bay window to let the breeze flow on a sunny day or to let the light wash in on those colder winter days, we want to create an environment that’s cozy and welcoming, with the perfect meal to match. This meal can consist of our Chicken Tacos with tortillas that are made in house with some of the top-rated margaritas in Chicago. Or, if you’re feeling something lighter in the mornings, come by our window and pick up some Churros and Coffee to start off your day. Whatever you want out of your amazing experience, we want to be your main stop for the best Mexican food with the best vibe. After all, La Principal translates to “The Main,” in English, so we want to live up to our name. We offer delivery, carryout and dine-in options.
