The Chicago Loop's Best Tacos
Let’s taco’bout the Loop’s great taco spots! While tacos may not be the Loop’s signature cuisine (move over, deep dish pizza), downtown is home to some pretty impressive tacos.
Food halls are putting the Loop’s casual dining scene on the map, so it’s no surprise that one of the Loop’s best tacos can be found at Latinicity on the third floor of Block 37. While you can’t go wrong with any of the delicious Latin-inspired cuisine in this massive 10 stall eatery, we recommend the pastor or chicken tinga tacos. These drool-worthy tacos are only $2 on Tuesdays from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Who would have thought that Macy’s would be home to one of the Loop’s best tacos? Frontera Fresco, created by Chef Rick Bayless, is a quick-service restaurant inside the Macy's Seven on State food court that offers a wide variety of tacos made with natural ingredients and all priced at $4.50 or less.
Broken English Taco Pub
Located on the corner of Michigan Avenue and Lake Street, Broken English offers flavorful tacos, a lively atmosphere and a fantastic margarita. The pub’s happy hour special is one of the best deals in town with $2 tacos and $5 margaritas on weekdays from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Flaco’s Tacos offers some great deals throughout the week such as $3 Margarita Mondays and $1 Taco Tuesdays. Choose from traditional tacos or house specialty tacos such as the Cowboy taco filled with lime-grilled steak, roasted corn, Chihuahua cheese, caramelized onion, and topped with homemade guacamole.
Antique Taco at Revival Food Hall
An extension of the hip restaurants located in Wicker Park and Bridgeport, Antique Taco offers a fresh and decadent taco that looks as great as it tastes. The Sweet and Spicy Chicken Taco is a work of art, topped with cucumber and jalapeno pickle, curry, cinnamon, honey yogurt, onion and mint.
