Taco Joint

It’s helmed by the same restaurateurs behind the perpetually praised Zocalo, but Taco Joint is an enterprise all in its own. This trendy River North spot focuses entirely on Mexican street food, with tacos, tortas, and antojitos—or Mexican snacks—populating the simplistic menu. Yet, there’s nothing simple about preparing these feasts. Chefs complement their taco creations with homemade salsas and hand-made tortillas. Creamy tomatillo crowns tacos rajas overstuffed with poblano peppers and onions, and a spicy habanero salsa completes the pulled-pork cochinita taco that Time Out Chicago says, “Knows almost no limits in flavor.”

Pat Bruno of the Chicago Sun-Times, meanwhile, fell for the tortas, a Mexican-style sandwich that Taco Joint packs with shredded chicken, homemade chorizo, or marinated grilled tri-tip. Open until midnight or 2 a.m. most nights, the joint supplies goodies to late-night bar-hoppers, including Mexican beers, fresh-mulled margaritas made from more than 50 types of tequila, and even boasts a walk-up window for those who don’t want to leave their horse unattended.

In a Nutshell

Six kinds of tacos, such as al pastor or garlic-infused shrimp, wrapped in hand-made tortillas and washed down by el Jimador margaritas
