Try this: The pork belly tacos get the attention, but we love the queso fundido.
Try the michelada from our 100 Best list: We know it contains Tecate, Cholula and Valentina hot sauces, and Maggi. Oh, and we’re certain it's delicious, alleviates hangovers & might just cure cancer.
Go for the amazing and cheap tacos and great whiskey!
The queso fundido and pork belly tacos will rock your world. Cash only!
Must-try cocktail: Paloma. Mexico’s answer to the Greyhound, balanced and way beyond typical taqueria fare.

pork belly tacos
Try a michelada. Tecate w a salsa mix. I'm in love with them and they make a good one here. Pastor tacos and the guac are also very good!
The margaritas are great but they sneak up on you like a rapist in the night.
Tacos, queso fundido, and mi chilada on the patio. A summer staple.
Go here and eat something!
Everyone here is extremely attractive on just about any given night.

The pork belly tacos are king but the guacamole is also amazing

Best tacos in the city
Love the veggie tacos.
Pork belly is the new fad, try something else this time. All tacos are great!
I'm a big fan of Big Star tacos and guacamole, but I've always had horrible service. Opt for the take-out window.
Got to agree with the pork belly, it's definitely a winner. Also recommend the basa and lamb shoulder tacos as well. Priced right!
Do not miss Big Star if you're in Chicago in the warm months, awesome patio. Delicious margaritas and creative, tasty, not run-of-the mill tacos
Watch out for the Big Star blackout, happens every time.
Order Panza and Pescado tacos and don't go crazy with the margaritas they are strong!
Take Out Window. Best tip ever.
This fun Mexican joint is about food, beverage and experience, all given equal weight – and all for a small check.
The tacos are $3 and small, so order more than one if you're hungry. Quick service!!
Solid Fish taco for chicago
I love this place. The guacamole is a must. Tacos de rajas and poblano have me addicted
Get the braised pork belly tacos. They're awesome. Impressive cocktails. But be forewarned: they only accept cash, and their ATM is a ripoff.
Drink a Tecate. Just do it.
FISH TACOS are 3-bite wonders!
Great tacos, and deadly margaritas
Pitcher of margaritas on Big Star's patio is the perfect way to spend (drink) a summer afternoon.
good taco's, to bad the wait is so long
Good food, shittiest of hipper than thou attitude service.
Go early on a sunday
Total pick up bar. Say you're in a band and you'll get laid. Tacos are great..$3 whiskeys.
best margarita by the pitcher...get there early long lines for tables esp. on weekends.
2 Palomas, a Goldrush and a shot of the day = #Dead.
