The fancy taco spot's first location outside of Texas is this Gold Coast outpost. Expect pork belly, calamari and falafel tacos alongside classics like chicken, fish and shredded pork. There's a margarita, wine and beer, and if you go to the back entrance, you can get a build-your-own-taco package for $20. The counter spot will also have a Chicago specific dish, the Chicago Haute Dog taco, which piles pork belly with pickles, pickled fresnos, mustard, tomato, red onion, poppy seed and celery salt.

This place is just down the street from my apartment so the convenience factor is a huge bonus. There are a lot of different taco options and most of the ones i've tried are pretty good. The margaritas are outstanding but their soda machine is filled with non traditional sodas. I would definitely recommend to someone who is in the area and wants something fast.
