Big Star is a bourbon and beer-focused, taco-slinging, late-night honky-tonk in the heart of Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood. Executive Chef Paul Kahan and Chef de Cuisine Julie Warpinski’s menu, inspired by authentic Mexican street food, is complemented by an extensive house-selected single barrel bourbon program. Housed in a defunct 1940's gas station, the taqueria’s soundtrack of classic country and rock & roll is selected and spun by our bar staff.

The line to if you want a table at Big Star is usually pretty long but it's worth the wait. I'd say, if you have the time, put your name down and just go to... Read more
