    Half taco hut, half whiskey joint, Big Star is the place for al fresco meet-ups in Chicago. When the weather is warm, the doors of this former garage are raised and open tables disappear in a flash. 続きを見る

    $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 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!

    If you’re looking to day drink then a pitcher of mezcal margarita is the way forward. Served with real ice so it doesn’t get watered down too fast, great with the Al Pastor and Steak & cheese tacos.

    Everyone knows Big Star is famous for its cheap and tasty tacos but it's the queso fundido that really wowed my tastebuds. Melted queso Chihuahua cheese compliments the peppers and meaty chorizo. 続きを見る

    Pescado (fish) tacos are delicious here. Al pastor tacos have pineapple adding sweetness flavor, which was interesting. Great margs as well albeit a bit salty, ask for no salt!

    Tacos al pastor, which is spit-roasted pork cooked with pineapple and onion; a crunchy fried fish taco; and best of all, pork belly with tomato guajillo sauce, queso fresco, onion, and cilantro. 続きを見る

    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 👍

    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.

    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.

    Everything you've heard is true; this is the place you want to be on a sunny afternoon. Delectable tacos and excellent Mexican/summer themed beers and drinks. You MUST order the queso fundido!

    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

    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

    It's difficult to beat a classic. We're talking about the classic margarita, made with tequila Lunazul tequila, lime, and orange curacao. 続きを見る

    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

    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.

    On a nice night, skip the long line to be seated and get your tacos from the takeout window to the left. There are too many good things to do in Wicker Park to waste your time in a 2 hr queue.

    Pretty yummie! Great nachos and guacamole and the tacos are really super tasty! 3 pieces per person are just the prefect meal size ;)

    While it may lack variety — it has a small, one-page menu of primarily tacos — you can count on each dish to pack a serious punch. One of the main appeals of Big Star is its huge patio. 続きを見る

    If you can just drink and not partake in Paul Kahan’s tacos al pastor…or his fish tacos…or his housemade salsas…or his sonoran hot dog (wrapped in bacon)…you have more restraint than we do. -JK 続きを見る

    If this were in NYC, you'd never be able to get a table. Tacos were dope (especially the chicken + fish), drinks are cheap!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Beat the brutal weekend crowds by dropping by the takeout window to grab a couple of tacos or plant yourself at the wall-length counter for a few beers or quality cocktails. 続きを見る

    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.

    Listen. Order the Chicken and fish tacos (everything is delicious but those are the best ones) with a side pitcher of margarita and you're set. 👌

    Foodies citywide rejoiced when this Bucktown taqueria opened its patio. More chances for us to partake in Paul Kahan’s tacos also means little foodies to sip dulce de leche milkshakes and lick paletas 続きを見る

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.
