An homage to the honky-tonk bars found through out Bakersfield, California, Big Star is Chicago’s bourbon and beer-focused, taco-slinging, honky-tonk hangout. With three locations in Chicago’s Wicker Park, Wrigleyville, and West Town neighborhoods. Offering new takes on authentic Mexican street food by Executive Chef-Partner Paul Kahan and Culinary Director Chris Miller, house staples include al Pastor, Baja, and Panza tacos using house-made tortillas, along with vegan and vegetarian options such as the Tostada de Hongos.

The extensive bourbon program is unlike any other in the country and boasts 20 exclusive House Barrel selections straight from the heart of Kentucky. The taqueria’s eclectic soundtrack ranges from classic country to 70s rock & roll, selected and spun by musically talented bar staff. As a result, Big Star Recording Co. was launched in 2016 with their first LP “Bucking The Tiger” by Quarter Mile Thunder. Big Star is located at 1531 North Damen Avenue in Wicker Park, 3640 N Clark St, directly across from Wrigley Field, and 551 N Odgen Ave in West Town.
