Where we've featured it
Inside the Ohio Hotel is Cafe Tola. It’s a small, casual counter-service Mexican spot with several other locations in Chicago. This one in River North has lots of pink accents and a chalkboard menu, and while the space looks like a good spot for a 6-year-old’s teddy bear tea party, it’s actually a good choice for an affordable lunch in the neighborhood. It has tasty tacos and daily empanada specials, and everything on the menu is under $10. Order the skirt steak, chicken mole, or chorizo and egg tacos, plus whatever the empanada of the day is. Just know that this place is small and popular, so expect a wait.
