Big Star is a bourbon and beer-focused, taco-slinging, late-night honky-tonk in the heart of Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood. Executive Chef Paul Kahan and Chef de Cuisine TJulie Warpinski's menu, inspired by authentic Mexican street food, is complemented by an extensive house-selected single barrel bourbon program.  Housed in a defunct 1940's gas station, the taqueria’s soundtrack of classic country and rock & roll is selected and spun by our bar staff.
