Great food. I’ve lived in Hyde park four years now and I’ve frequently visited. The food quality is consistent. Customer service has always been subpar though and the last few months they’ve only been accepting cash, no credit cards. What an inconvenience. Still, their food...More

If you want authentic lard-y mexican food you go to SW Chicago (Pilsen, Midway Airport area, etc.). But I'm never disappointed at Maravillas. We've tried some of everything - the meat is always well-cooked, the homemade tortillas are delicious and the beans and rice are...More

I was disappointed in the way that this restaurant charges extra for everything! First of all, they won't give you chips unless you spend $10. If you want a refill that costs $1. The amount of salsa they served with the chips was less than...More

If you want to get a feel for quintessential South
Side Chicago, you have to make a stop in Hyde Park,
one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods. This
historic area is home to two of the city’s most
prominent cultural institutions, the Museum of Science
and Industry and the University of Chicago. A stroll
here will bring you past vintage and grand hotels
converted into luxury apartment buildings; peaceful
