Moe’s Cantina, located at 155 W. Kinzie St., is the only authentic Northern Mexican restaurant in Chicago’s beautiful River North neighborhood. Mexican cuisine consists of many different regional styles depending on the climate of the area. Northern Mexico’s desert climate supports a large livestock population which led to the region’s meat-based dishes. The ranching culture’s historical use of wood fire and outdoor cooking is what developed the distinct smoky flavors that are still loved today. This delicious tradition and generations old family recipes from our founder Sam Sanchez are the foundation of Moe’s Cantina’s extensive list of locally-inspired tacos, steak and mesquite-grilled skewers!
Mr. Sanchez also looked to his heritage when designing our interior. The exposed bricks walls, custom-made wrought iron chandeliers, and open kitchens with wood-burning grills make for a warm, inviting atmosphere that is perfect for a meal with family and friends. Equipped with a state of the art sound systems and countless HDTVs, you’ll always have a perfect view to cheer on your team.
You don’t need to cross the border for homemade Northern Mexican dishes, drinks and hospitality. We can’t wait to welcome you into our home!
