    Upscale Mexican Food

    Shrimp Diabla the way it should taste. Our server was also the pastry chef she was great at both jobs we had the guava pannacotta and ate every morsel. a great experience and you can save a little money if you bring your own although they have a full bar

    Fine dining on South Halsted!!

    I've visited Amelia's 3 times after discovering them on this website. When I saw the address I was frankly confused because I just couldn't imagine a nice restaurant at that location. I actually drove by one day to see and visited a few weeks later for lunch. What a pleasant surprise. I ordered the fries...YOU HAVE TO ORDER THE FRIES....I've never had fries that good and I bought some of the aioli to bring home. I have not had a bad meal there and I highly recommend this wonderful Southside gem.

    expand your mind beyond taco's

    Geez, asking for a taco at Amelia's is like asking for a hot-dog at a 4 star restaurant. tacky... This is fine dining, this chef is top notch, I am embarrassed that anyone would make such a request. If you want a taco, go to Pepe's, if you want an elegant gourmet meal you will never forget, go to Amelia's.

    Great little hidden spot

    I've eaten at Amelia's four times since it opened in the summer of 09. The menu is unusual. It is a blend of Mexican (chillies of every description), French (exquisite sauces)and American(to die for french fries with aoli sauce) with exquisite deserts. All the meals have been excellent though the last visit was slightly below par of the three previous meals.

    Find Your Way Here Now!

    If you live anywhere on the near south/southwest sides, and want to enjoy Mexican cuisine in a slightly more upscale sitdown setting, you must run, not walk, to Amelia's! This place has been described as the "restaurant at the end of the universe." It is in an otherwise bare stretch of Halsted, but it's only a few blocks south of the acti0n in Bridgeport, and it's worth getting here. This place is the successor to "Mundial" in Pilsen, and has a very similar menu -- upscale Mexican food with some Mediterranean accents. Try the quesadilla huitlacoche, which is a Mexican mushroom and every bit as tasty as porcini. Also excellent is the sweet corn Tamal (with queso fresco and salsa) and the oysters topped with ceviche. For entrees, Chef Eusevio Garcia REALLY knows how to cook seafood PERFECTLY. His salmon dishes make you appreciate anew this now-ubiquitous fish. He also has a seafood stew that is really a cut above other places. Finally, the desserts! The crepas locas are perfection, with lovely crepes, caramelized bananas, homemade ice cream, chocolate sauce and mini-marshmallows. Chef Garcia also has wonderful house-made tortillas and a great mole that you can order as a side dish for dipping. We plan on going back sooner rather than later for brunch. It's supposed to be even better than dinner. If so, that's gonna be REALLY good.

    The best fries with aioli

    I requested tacos although it is not on the menu and I understand why it is not because I have had much better. However, the homemade fries with green aioli is out of this world! Although I am going to go back and have the salmon wrap ( I saw someone else with it and it looks delicious), I would go back just for the fries. I also love the atmosphere!

    Excellent food!!

    I love the new menu! The food is excellent with a good variety. This is not your local taco place although you can ask for them here. This is a high quality, higher end Mexican restaurant. I have had the braised beef and the braised short ribs. Both are to die for, very tender and full of flavor! The tortilla soup is one of the best I've ever had. I highly recommend this restaurant. The service is excellent.
