Description

Located in three of Chicago's most vibrant neighborhoods - The Loop, Old Town, & Lincoln Park - Broken English combines a unique take on Mexican street style tacos, refreshing beverages, eclectic music, and vivid artwork created by local talent. On the name, restaurateur Adolfo Garcia says, “I speak English with my friends, and I often find myself mixing in Spanish words because there are some phrases that simply don’t translate to English. This happens in many other languages and cultures, but that is what makes the name ‘Broken English’ fun – it is part of our daily slang.”

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! They have a variety of classic and modern style tacos! We ran into this place incidentally on our walk one day, and we’re so happy we stopped in. Delicious food, wonderful atmosphere, and we couldn’t have asked for a sweeter waitress (Tania).
