Time Out says

The second location of this gourmet leaning quick-service fish and taco spot is a little slicker than the original. It’s run by former Hell’s Kitchen contestant Tony D’Alessandro, the standout fish in the fish and chips is breaded and fried to order, burgers are made from Angus beef and the french fries are larded with hunks of foie gras.

This place is incredible. Priced very well and the menu is so big there's something for everybody here. Super casual and BYOB. Can't wait to go back! 

All the seafood tacos, please! This spot does so many things well, so even if you chose an item at random you'll be rewarded with a tasty meal. The fish and chips are also excellent!

The service and food is amazing. I have tried majority of the menu at this point and it does not disappoint. The food is always fresh and delicious. My favorite thing on the menu is the white fish po' boy samurai style.


When I found out that BIG & little's had a shop close to where I live I was ecstatic - I couldn't imagine having to go back to Wicker Park every time I craved one of these tacos. And I crave them often. I wonder how business across the street at Chipotle suffers as a result of this excellent choice so nearby. 

Every taco I've had here is amazing. My favorites though are the Hawaiian Pork and Spicy Pork. No, they aren't traditional Mexican tacos, but the unique flavors make for an incredible meal nonetheless. For folks who aren't into tacos, the burgers and fries are also excellent and offered in a wide variety of options. 

I can understand why this place has been featured on so many TV shows. It's definitely not a place you wanna miss.
