La Josie tacos and enchiladas

Time Out says

Situated on a prime corner on the bustling Randolph Street strip, La Josie brings the flavors of Jalisco, Mexico to the West Loop (accompanied by three bars and rooftop seating). Chef and owner Jose Luis “Pepe” Barajas got his start behind the counter of a Los Comales near McKinley Park, but the dishes here are considerably more upscale—though the communal joy of enjoying delicious tacos, enchiladas and plates piled with guacamole are intact. The menu is sprawling, with no less than 14 types of tacos to choose from—we recommend the juicy barbacoa or the al pastor, complete with caramelized pineapples. Seafood-lovers will enjoy the chapuzón, a medley of Spanish octopus, mahi-mahi and tiger shrimp in a spicy butter sauce, served with handmade tortillas. And if you're a fan of mezcal, page through La Josie's extensive agave menu or ask your server for a recommendation.
