El Barco is a unique Mexican restaurant in Chicago serving the most delicious seafood available. We are the first restaurant in the area to serve coastal Mexican food, emphasizing the amazing seafood flavors you would find in Acapulco. At El Barco, we believe that the best food should be made with simple, fresh ingredients. You won't find anything fussy here. Our menu highlights the natural flavors of the food, from crab legs and red snapper to steak, chicken and ceviche.

Whether you are looking for a fun, interesting spot for date night or you want a great family-style restaurant, El Barco is the perfect option. We are a unique neighborhood spot serving fresh, delicious food that you won't find elsewhere. We might not be your typical Mexican food restaurant, but we definitely have margaritas! We have a large selection of tequila, so the possibilities are endless.
