Concierge.com's insider take:

This Wicker Park crowd-pleaser follows all the rules of a down-home honky-tonk (albeit a fake one). It doesn't take reservations, the decor approximates a dive diner, the music is loud, and it's usually crammed with boys in fedora hats throwing back shots of whiskey and tequila. While you can eat a meal here for under $10, at heart, Big Star is a seriously upscale taqueria that does not mess around when it comes to its food. In fact, it's co-owned by Chicago top chef Paul Kahan. Among the best bites: tacos al pastor stuffed with marinated spit-roasted pork shoulder, grilled pineapple, and cilantro; and tacos de Borrego bursting with braised lamb shoulder, radish, roasted scallion, and queso fresco.—Raphael Kadushin
