Duck carnitas tacos and tall margaritas. Does the human race need anything more? Actually, yes: we need the cochinita taco too, the pork paired with pickled onions and habanero salsa. And come to think of it, the barbacoa (savory braised beef) tacos are pretty necessary too. The owners of Zocalo pared down their ambitions for this relatively small restaurant in Lincoln Park. In doing so, they greatly enhanced the experience of eating there.

Taco Joint is an absolute gem--the best taco place IMO in both Lincoln Park (besides Del Seoul of course!) and River North. If you want better tacos, you'll have to trek to Pilsen or Logan. These tacos are packed with flavor and priced reasonably, plus the apps and drinks here are also delicious. Now that I work in River North again, I'll probably be coming here at least once a month.
