De Cero

814 W. Randolph St.
Chicago, IL, 60607, United States
TEL: (312) 455-8114

Translating to “from scratch,” De Cero lives up to its name by offering dishes crafted entirely with homemade ingredients, from fresh crema (cream) to hand-pressed tortillas. The result? Fifteen gourmet tacos, including duck confit with corn salsa, skirt steak with chipotle mayo, and battered shrimp in an avocado crema. Located on Randolph Street’s restaurant row, the taqueria has a narrow, earth-toned interior with simple wooden furniture and natural light streaming in through the slatted ceiling. In addition to the tacos, patrons return for the guacamole, duck nachos, and creative margaritas in flavors like mango chile and pineapple jalapeño.

Insider Tip:

De Cero’s dining room is often buzzing with energy, so if you’re seeking a more peaceful experience, call ahead to reserve a table on the quieter front patio.
