Big Star Taqueria information
Once a filling station, now a taco-serving honky-tonk bar helmed by a big-name Chicago chef (Paul Kahan). So goes gentrification in Wicker Park. The place gets packed, but damn, those tacos are worth the wait – pork belly in tomato-guajillo chili sauce and mole-spiced carrots drizzled with date-infused yogurt accompany the specialty whiskey list.
If the table-studded patio is too crowded, order from the walk-up window.
