Small Mexican food restaurant with friendly service, we came here after reading a review for it. The place is small but there was a patio area which we didn't go to. So, being that we visited in December and that this place is in boystown aka the gay part of town, they had a festive rainbow Christmas tree just as you walked in thru the door. We ordered a frozen margarita that was good, couldn't taste the alcohol so I didn't drink all of it. I was afraid it would hit me all at once so best to be safe than sorry. For appetizers we got an empanada de carne and loaded fries with steak. Think of them as nachos but instead of chips, you get fries. Spicy! And loved that the fries were cut thick so they never got mushy with the pico and the rest of the stuff that was piled onto them. As main course we got the shrimp tacos (3 of them) and a torta de carne. The torta is basically a Mexican sandwich. This one came with black beans in addition to the usual things like lettuce, etc., etc. We didn't get dessert because we were full! Service was very friendly and attentive. Even told us where to go next to have a drink!read more

I just got done stuffing my face with some steak and chicken fajitas, and I got to asking myself “why the bell did it take me so long to come here?” If you haven’t visited, do yourself a favor and get in here. Food is delicious and cooked to order. The steak was insanely juicy and was bursting with flavor. Chicken was not overcooked and was great also. They have a great staff, I came in close to 10 on a Monday for a take out order and they were super nice - especially Polino, he insured I had everything I needed and to make sure my order was perfect. I hear their patio is really awesome and will look forward to visiting in the summer with my friends. Coming back tomorrow for Taco Tuesday - $2 tacos? Hell yeah! Get yourself into Fajita Factory!read more

We have been enjoying this place about once a week since the night they did their soft open. Their staff is incredibly helpful and friendly, and the owner really seems to care about the customer. It has been awesome to watch them continue to improve the menu and the way they serve the food (from metal trays to cast iron skillets, etc.). The unique empanadas always make me wish I had ordered more. The fajitas are the perfect amount of seared and seasoned. The black beans are unique and full of flavor. The atmosphere is FANTASTIC and one of our favorite parts. As soon as you pass by, the mural on the outside grabs your attention. Once you head inside it feels like you've entered a party and the back "pepper room" is intimate and fun. The new patio only adds to the spectacular experience. And if none of that is enough for you, the weekly deals should grab your attention - dollar empanadas, BOGO fajitas, and $5 20 oz. margaritas!!! If reducing the number of staff and making me place my own order means they can offer deals like that, I'm in! I can't imagine having anything bad to say about this place. We've brought nearly every one of our friends and family members in for the experience. We'll be back...again and again. 🙂read more

Loved the patio! and the order yourself kiosk and pay first (only felt it weird deciding what to tip before I have even gotten my food- just did standard 20%) Thought it was pricey for the small portions. Ordered steak fajitas- although meat was a little fatty, Presentation of the dish was beatiful and sizzling hot- fresh off grillread more

I went in on opening day a while back and the food was good. I wouldn't say it was authentic but the attempt was definitely there! They had some amazing drink options, from very sweet to jalapeño spicy! A vibrant environment with friendly staff and nice decor. Definitely a good spot to hit up before going out for the night 💃🏾read more

Went here expecting typical fast-casual fare, but was surprised by how delicious the food was, especially the empanadas! The buffalo chicken was excellent, and, if you're in the mood to "treat yoself," the sweet dessert empanadas are to die for! Give this place a try!read more

Full bar with frozen drinks

The Music

Music is the soundtrack of our lives; and to accompany your dining experience we’ve curated a mixture of latin pop, cuban, and central american ear candy. Expect to hear Dancehall, Reggaeton, Salsa, Hip Hop, Moombahton, Afro Cuban and more.

The Look

The outside of the building was inspired by the wealth of street art in Central America. We took inspiration from all over the hemisphere to bring a 40 foot mural to life. Graffiti artist Werm (Greg) spent days on a lift painting each brick by hand (you can follow him on Instagram here). We also wanted to express all the colors of the rainbow in Boystown, an already colorful neighborhood.

The Feel

Inside D.S. Fajita Factory we created a street food atmosphere, tipping our hats to the outdoor markets of the Caribbean. Step right in to a weathered, urban, sense of culinary adventure.
