$17 for Tacos and Margaritas for Two (Up to $34 Total Value)

  • Six tacos (up to an $18 value)
  • Two Zocalo margaritas (a $16 value)<p>

Tacos wrap around fillings such as tilapia ceviche, barbacoa, and Yucatan-style pulled pork. The bar’s Zocalo margarita combines Lunazul Blanco tequila with Triple Sec and fresh lime juice.

The owners of Taco Joint, also the masterminds behind Zocalo, heat up their multicolored taqueria with cuisine inspired by the street fare of Mexico, earning praise from Time Out Chicago and the Chicago Sun-Times. A palette of purples, pinks, and greens accents distressed walls while palates savor meat and fish prepared in the traditions of Yucatan, Jalisco, and central Mexico. Chef Edgar Torres’s team crafts each tortilla by hand before heaping it with braised and grilled meats, homemade salsas, and four different guacamoles to represent the four ways of pronouncing guacamole. Bartenders coax Mexican beers from the tap and concoct margaritas from more than 50 blue-agave tequilas. Taco Joint’s takeout window imports the street-snacking experience to Lincoln Park as customers line up to order elotes or borrow a cup of sugar.

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.

Excellent! The Lincoln Park location was too busy, but they honored my groupon at the River North location and even gave me a free dessert! The food and drinks were delicious. I will definitely visit again.
