  • Dragos StancuThis and antique taco are the best Mexican fusion places I know in the city

    55555 by Dragos Stancu

  • Joey N.Bottles of margaritas are a great deal on Wednesdays. Corn and queso fundido are their best apps. Pass on the chips and salsa and guacamole.

    55555 by Joey N.

  • ChicagoistTwo tacos and an order of antojitos make for a solid, satisfying lunch. Check out the ceviche, featuring citrus-cured tilapia, or the cochinta, with Yucatan-style pulled pork.

    55555 by Chicagoist

  • Elizabeth Metcalfetacos al pastor 💗💗

    55555 by Elizabeth Metcalfe

    55555 by Kari

  • KariThey make their own michelada mix and when you order one, it is served on the side so you can serve yourself as much as you please. It is to die for!

    55555 by Kari

  • Kaitlyn S.The food was really tasty and reasonably priced for that area but I was really disappointed in the service. We had to get back to class and our server disappeared, he then charged my card twice.

    22222 by Kaitlyn S.

    55555 by Kristin

  • SusanneThe corn on the cob is delish...

    55555 by Susanne

  • Serious EatsArabe Taco: This specialty from Puebla was influenced by an influx of Lebanese immigrants, which explains why it feels more Mediterranean, even though there is a definite chile presence.

    55555 by Serious Eats

  • Dick HertzShocked no one ever mentions the Tinga de Pollo tacos! Truly missing out. Try them!

    55555 by Dick Hertz

  • justin g.Its like going to Masu without the d bag crowd. People at Masu suck.

    33333 by justin g.

  • Brace C.Ask for the Casa Azulejo Tequila. You will not regret it!

    55555 by Brace C.

  • Brace C.You gotta do one of the guacamole! They serve it with banana chips, a spicy tortilla chip, and some kind of onion chip. Delicious!!

    55555 by Brace C.

  • justin g.Way better than masu!!! Cheap food good staff and great drink specials. Try the fajita or estilo baja or pollo al carbon torta. Anyone that disagrees. Never come back you just clog the bar anyway.

    55555 by justin g.

    55555 by Brittany R.

  • Miranda M.Beer slushies!!! Love them. On the menu they are called the Black & Green Margarita, but, whatever…

    55555 by Miranda M.

  • Lauren J.Sitting at the front bar is ideal the back tables have an odd set-up. Order the grapefruit margarita! I always kick myself when I stray!

    55555 by Lauren J.

  • Keilon L.Had the steak, the al pastor and the ceviche...they were all great! The ceviche was surprising more tasty than I imagined it to be. I can't decide a favorite between the 3 for now. Greatness!

    55555 by Lindsay P.

  • T H.It's just OK. The only taco worth getting is the al pastor. Very yuppie, LP vibe. You can expect to be the only POC there unless you take another POC-then there will be two of you :)

    33333 by T H.

  • Ricardo D.Barbacoa Tacos are AWESOME!!!!!!

    55555 by Ricardo D.

  • ReneeThe Al Pastor taco is so good. The barbacoa taco is a little slickery than I expected, but I also have low tolerance for jalapenos. Traditional guacamole is also the best choice for guacs!

    55555 by Renee

    55555 by Hillary H.

  • Kayu T.The duck taco was very good :)

    33333 by Kayu T.

  • Steve C.This place is mediocre at best. Th menu is small and the tacos aren't that good. The only thing that makes Taco Joint special is that it is open to 3 on the weekend. I'll take Masu over Taco Joint
