Great tacos, cool bartenders
I was visiting Chicago on business and had an Airbnb off Milwaukee, super close to Big Star. We have a similar place in Seattle and when I walked by, I knew I had to give this place a try. It was a nice afternoon and the outside dining was bustling, along with most of the tables inside. There was a bit of room at the bar, so I got cozy there. The bartender was friendly and knowledgeable. I ordered a margarita which was delicious and strong! It's nice to slightly taste the liquor and not only overwhelming sour or sweet notes from the mix used. Nicely done. I ordered chips and salsa; chips were tasty and the salsas were delicious. I especially enjoyed the green one. Super tangy, neither too salty and hot. I also ordered both pork tacos. They arrived after not too long of a wait. Both I equally enjoyed and had nice flavors and tender pork. The only reason why I've taken off a star is due to the fact that both tacos were extremely salty. The flavors were awesome but they were both realllllyyyyyy salty. :/ Overall, I would absolutely recommend trying Big Star. It was indeed pretty loud inside, but the atmosphere was fun and the food is good!
