Transport to Mexico with weekly specials and live music at Guanajuato in Glencoe

Enjoy the upbeat sounds of a live trio band while dining on authentic Mexican cuisine and escape to Mexico at Guanajuato, a new contemporary Mexican restaurant in Chicago’s North Shore. Guanajuato offers weekly dinner specials, plus live music 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. every Friday and Saturday.

Guanajuato, named for the beautiful state in the central highlands of Mexico where executive chef/owner Margarita Challenger was born, offers rotating lunch and dinner specials every week. All August long enjoy Queso Fundido con Mariscos, melted mozzarella cheese with grilled shrimp, scallops and tilapia seasoned with a pinch of jalapeño peppers, and served with Guanajuato’s salsa and flour tortillas ($14.95). For an entrée, try the Enchiladas Pacifico, three mixed seafood enchiladas (grilled shrimp tilapia and scallops) lightly sautéed in red guajillo San Miguel salsa, served with lettuce, tomato, red onion, avocado, Cotija cheese and sour cream ($18.95). Specials are offered for lunch and dinner daily in addition to Guanajuato’s regular menu.
