$40 for a pitcher of margaritas and I stumbled away very happy! Queso fundido, Baja taco and guacamole are outstanding. Go drink at the bar, the hostess will text you when your table is ready.
I went for the first time this past weekend and I tried fish tacos, and beef taco, taco al pastor. All of them very good. The horchata wasn't spectacular for me, but the recommendation I got was 👍
Amazing first experience, although I admittedly didn't know what many menu items were (the menu is a mix of bilingual terms), everything I and my boyfriend picked was delicious. Cannot wait to go back
Super crowded. Cash only. That said, all the tacos are great. Favorite is the chicken taco. Tostada is awesome too. Very trendy. Good place to go with friends. Hit up the window outside in a hurry.
I came from de taco's country and this are most expensive tacos in my life, but they are great, have sowl, style, great service, delicious michelads and the "dulce de leche licuado" is pure sweetness.
Get the $30 margarita pitcher, some tacos, and sit back and relax with a friend and people gaze. FYI seats at the bar are a little hard to get, but easier than a table. Once you're in though, u good
Tacos de pescado + fish tacos are sooooo good , definitely a must to try. Guacamole is amazing as well. If you are a taco lover definitely check this place out.
Been a fan since April...absolutely love this place, the food and margarita pitchers! Pork belly, al pastor & poblano w/cheese tacos, guac, queso fundido delish. Sonoran Hotdog new addition-was ok LUV
asked for specials (think "cheap")... the stupid server got us the $7 12oz beer ("the staff draft")... vs $1 schlitz that we later found out existed - be sure to ask $/beer if you're price sensitive
Four for four: Paul Kahan strikes again with a taqueria that draws hour-long waits for al pastor and signature cocktails. Everyone raves about the pork belly, but our rec is to opt for the fish tacos.
Rajas, Panza, Pollo & Michelada to drink. I love this place but I hate that they will not give you a large container for chips & salsa to-go. Six small containers is really annoying. Is it that hard?
The pork belly and al pastor tacos are amazing! And if you like sweet drinks, try the Paloma. Bonus: big star is really dog friendly! Sit outside and they bring a bone & water bowl for the puppy!
Sure, the tacos cost a dollar more and aren't as good as the Mexican taquerias in Logan Square (try Moran or Traspasada) but they're the best in Wicker Park, and portions are decent for the price.
Depending on how adventurous you feel, you can get a taco stuffed with anything from pork belly to beef hearts. And, every day there’s a $3 whiskey shot special. - © 2013 BuzzFeed, Inc
Old Pontiac. $3 taco Tuesdays. Black cherry fizzzz drinks are delic. fun crowd. outside is fantastic. crowded- four or more for an inside booth, but sitting at the bar is fun- meet lots of pp1!
Al Pastor Tacos are the best! The pescado almost as good. Get the guacamole and the Big Star Margarita made with mescal... A smoky, less sweet alternative. Come at lunch for a minimal wait.
If you find yourself waiting in line for the pork belly tacos, pastor, queso fundido, etc, run across the street and check out Moon Voyage. On pierce st around the corner from pennys
go early. or don't. go late, be cool, and then i will be guaranteed a seat! basically it gets crowded after 6. bat your eyelashes & they might make the fish tostada into a taco, so good!!
I'm a picky mofo, yet simple at the same time. This is my refuge. My food, my music, my enviroment (- Iowa football, only deduction- understandable) and my people (who isn't). You will find me here.
The service is utterly rude, hostesses give no information on what to do while waiting for a table, and it seems there's no approach to customer assistance. Taco de papas & tostada de hongos are good.
Panza taco: get that and then add whatever else looks good. It all rocks. Queso Fundido is awesome. Great craft draft selection: only 6 or 7 on tap but all world class.
Getting a table to sip margaritas can take awhile, but if you just need a taco fix, head straight for the takeout window where you can usually get served in minutes.
Hands down the best tacos I've ever had. They don't have steak tacos and thats normally my taco preference but I tried the pork belly tacos and I fell in love. Cash only too.
I only went to their take out window so I only ordered 3 tacos and a horchata. Their chicken tacos are amazing in my opinion. Don't be afraid of the pickle they put in!
This was the 'unofficial' find of CCBW 2012. For a hipster venue (w| bartenders playing vinyl LPs!), there is no condescension toward outsiders. A good array of craftbeers also.
Patio is great for hanging out in, and its dog friendly as someone mentioned. The service sucks, and so does the food. Only saving grace is the whiskey. Big Star? More like 1 Star Out Of 5.
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.
Great lunch spot. Had a terrible experience trying to check out the night life due to a very rude and unprofessional bouncer who said they were closed but it was still advertised business hours.
Big Star is a Fun & Hip place located in Wicker Park Bucktown Area, It also helps that all the food & drinks are delicious as well. A Big Huge Star for Big Star...
They accept credit card now, but beware LONG lines on Fri/Sat nights. Order queso fundido with extra corn tortillas and a few Modelo Especials to balance out the cheese
Papas can Rajas Taco: This taco uses chipotles, which lend a smoky complexity to each bite. Though moderately spicy, they are tempered by cubes of potatoes.
Love!!! Delish bite size tacos...pork belly, al pastor and poblano pepper/cheese are the best. Delicious guac and very strong margarita pitchers! Gr8 outdoor patio
This place is completely packed on the weekends and has great drinks and mexican food :) Love going there for a snack and drinks on a Friday or Saturday.
big college crowd, annoyingly busy, the overzealous doormen kick it all off with a snobby vibe. the tacos are as good as anything is the SF mission though.
New development in the 7oz debacle. Do you *hate* spending less money? I know I do. But for you crazies out there who want to save $$, order a "7oz." It's exactly. the. same.
LAWDY those al pastors. Get a bunch of em, wash down with limeade, enjoy the outdoor seating. I've met some pretty amazing people on those picnic tables.
I hate it....service sucks....got id but yet three people came in with out being id.....waste of time and waste of money....they need better food...if your mexican you would prefer flash taco like me
Save ur $. Tacos r bland. Horchata is flavorless. Can't speak for rest of menu, but what I did have left much to be desired. Best part is the pollito lollipop you get with take out.
Really good pizzas. There is a lot of noise because the train is running just next to it, but still a cool place. Would definitely go there again
