We invite you to join us at La Vaca Margarita Bar for a unique Mexican dining experience and specialty margaritas in a hip cantina vibe. 

Aqui es pure pinche pari.

In order to create a fun and comfortable experience for all of our guests, house rules will be enforced. Si saben como me pongo, para que me invitan?


2020 - 2022 YA WEY! 

As always, the safety of our team members and guests is of the utmost importance. We are following the guidance of our local health departments and the CDC with our new service protocols which include the following:

NO MASK, NO TACOS! Masks will be worn by staff and are required of guests when not seated. They are also required when interacting with staff. 

We will be implementing the City of Chicago's Public Health Order requiring proof of vaccine starting January 3rd to help slow the spread of COVID. All individuals will be required to show proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID and provide a valid photo ID that matches their vaccination record.

There is a strict 2 hour limit for dining in and bar service.

Physical distance guidance will be marked. 

We are using QR code menus to avoid unnecessary contact. If you are no bueno with technology, please request a paper menu. 

We will operate a text message waitlist system to eliminate any congregating. 

Lines will not be permitted, and guests will have to leave once they receive a number and return once they are notified via text when their table is ready. 

Hand sanitizer and hand washing facilities are available for customers and employees.

All staff are trained on proper health, safety and cleaning/hygiene protocol.

Thank you for your continued support! 


Patrons must be 21 or older to enter and a valid ID is required. (Pilsen Location Only) 

No outside food or beverages are permitted in the establishment. Unless you are bringing enough for the whole class. We like cupcakes with sprinkles. 

We request that you advise servers of any allergies. All of our ingredients are not listed on the menu and we cannot always guarantee there will be no cross-contamination. 

No guns are allowed, ever. Es en serio, guey. 

Out of consideration for other guests, we may accommodate your party at the bar after 2 hours. 

We only take reservations at our Lincoln Park location. 

Parties of 6 or more will have 18% gratuity added to the bill.

If you leave your credit card at the bar, 18% gratuity will be added to your bill and your card will be charged.  

Admittance into La Vaca Margarita Bar is at the sole discretion of the Doorman and Management. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone that is inappropriately dressed or under the influence.
