Before tacos were used in Mexican cooking, they were used to teach children how to tell the difference between hard and soft cover books. Enjoy the taco in its tastiest role with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Mexican fare, margaritas, and beer at Taco Joint in Lincoln Park.

The cuisine team at Taco Joint distributes menus depicting authentic Mexican tacos and street fare inside walls depicting colorful murals. The barbacoa, a culinary tradition of central Mexico and the northern parts of Poland, satiates beef cravings with braised brisket and flavorfies dinner-demolishing devices with cilantro, onion, and roasted jalapeno salsa ($3). The ceviche taco abbreviates hunger pains with a bonanza of citrus-cured tilapia, tomato, cilantro, red onion, roasted red pepper, orange, and avocado over a crispy tortilla floor ($2). Stomachs in want of sustenance can also obtain south-of-the-border succor with Mexican-street-fare-inspired hongos huaraches, a flatbread dish speckled with sauteed mushrooms and roasted corn ($5).

Guests can quash liquid longings by sipping specialty margaritas— concocted with more than 50 Blue Agave tequilas— such as the Zocalo margarita, which unites Lunazul Blanco tequila with triple sec and lime juice ($7).

Taco Joint

Head chef Edgar Torres and his kitchen crew bedeck handmade corn tortillas with braised meats, homemade salsa, and fresh vegetables. Frosty imported brews tower over steaming tacos and tortas, and more than 50 tequilas made with blue agave serve as the foundation for margaritas and cocktails. Frequent visitors snag favored firewaters from rented tequila lockers to fuel revelry over plates of barbacoa tacos, which the Chicago Sun-Times called an "instant hit."

Natural wood accents, distressed walls, and festive murals parade rural color, and waiters deliver water in liquor-bottle-shaped decanters with oversize shot glasses for quick imbibing. Tendrils of mouthwatering aromas tickle passersby late into the evening, drifting from overstuffed tacos that reporters from Where reported "wowed" taste buds.

Customer Reviews

it was good but so busy that we waited 30 min for our initial drink order. and another 30 for the waiter to return to take our order. they cleared our first drink and didn't ask about replacing. I ended up with two cocktails for a "bottomless" brunch. I wouldn't pay full price

Good deal however we arrived only a half hour after they opened and the waiter informed us they were out of 2 of the 6 brunch menu items and out of 2 or 3 of the 7 drink choices. I would recommend getting there early if you have your heart set on a specific menu/drink option.
