You can truly get so much for your money at Big Star. Just prepare to wait a LONG time if you want to sit at peak times. Ordering from their take out window is always a great, efficient, option as well.

If you can handle the hipsters, the food is really good.

Most people think of this as a taco and whiskey place, but the best thing I've had there is the hot dog. It comes on a huge housemade bun and is topped with all kinds of goodies. It's unlike any hot dog I've ever had, in a good way.

Nothing beats tacos al pastor at 2:00 am. Big Star is great!
