"Really though, some of the best Mexican food I've had in Chicago and we've tried a bunch of them since moving here last year. The Cochinita Pibil was outstanding." Opentable review 8/16

Marcos Rivera

Owner

Marco Rivera started his career in the restaurant industry in 1976 at the Ritz Carlton hotel in Chicago. He started as a busboy and eventually worked his way up to become a server. He enjoyed the business so much that he planned to open his own restaurant. That day came in 1984. His first was in Rogers Park right off of Howard street. He loved how good food and drinks could attract so many great people. 

Soon after opening up in Rogers park, he decided to try the suburbs out. In 1987 he opened up a location in glenview, followed by another in Evanston in 1989. All of his hard work had finally paid off so although he was very busy, he enjoyed doing what he loved. Ten years after Evanston, he decided to open another location in Highland Park, followed by one in Buffalo Grove in 1999. Talk about having your hands full, but Don Marcos saw it as a blessing instead of a burden, so he made it work. 

With all of these locations in the suburbs, Don Marcos started to reminisce about his first location in the city and how much he enjoyed it. He really loved what the city had to offer and how passionate people were about their food, so he started looking with his son, Marcos Jr., around in the city. They came across a nice little place off of North & Honore. Right away they said it felt like home, and they had a feeling that Wicker Park was an up and coming neighborhood, so they took the leap.
