La Mejikana

1820 S Ashland Ave

Chicago, IL 60608

We’ve found the food at this casual Mexican spot to be inconsistent - except for the burger, which is worth driving all the way across the city for. The beef patty is perfectly cooked, and topped with guacamole, an egg, grilled onions, chihuahua cheese, chipotle mayo, and a crispy-and-somehow-not-greasy chorizo patty. You need to experience it at least once, ideally alongside a mezcal cocktail at the bar.

The burger is by far the best thing at La Mejikana. It’s a beef burger with a crispy chorizo patty (that we’d take over bacon any day), fried egg, grilled onions, guacamole, chihuahua cheese, and chipotle mayo. Available for takeout and delivery.

We’ve found the rest of the menu at La Mejikana to be hit-or-miss, but the burger alone is reason enough to come here. The beef patty is perfectly cooked, and topped with guacamole, an egg, grilled onions, chihuahua cheese, chipotle mayo, and a crispy chorizo patty that we’d choose over bacon any day.

This Mexican spot is available for pickup and delivery. Order the burger.
