Look, Big Star just a block away has many attributes as I stated in my review for them, great drinks, music and patio, the food here is better. If you have spent any time in Mexico or California then you will taste the difference. Got...More

Enjoyed a great specialty steak burrito. Soft tortilla with delicious filling. Steak was especially good for the price. Generous portion for a small. Take out only. No seating. Cash only. Catering available. Open late.

Good lunch of pan fried Tilapia topped with Pico De Gallo & Mango Salsa on flour tortilla with a Mexican pineapple soda. Simple & quick in a small clean open to street dinning area in busy Wicker Park neighborhood.

Good drunk food, but nothing to write home about. You also must pay in cash. Sometimes service can be a bit slow, but that just makes you more hungry and therefore makes the tacos more delicious when you finally get them.

Flash Taco is a great place to go if you have a hankering for traditional tacos. Simple. Tasty. And the horchata is delicious. I love how late they're open. There is nothing better than a lengua taco at 2am. Oh wait...there is...TWO lengua tacos at...More
