The drink tasted great!3. The food was delicious! That BBQ pork empanada had my mouth needing more. The chips and salsa were fantastic. And the chicken fajita plate exceeded my expectations!4.

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

A fiesta for the eyes and taste buds

The Food

The menu at Fajita Factory consists of a wide selection of savory and sweet à la carte empanadas, classic fajitas, and specialty fajitas that will change seasonally. Fajitas are served either on a tray, or as a low carb salad.

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.
