About Big Star

Chefs Paul Kahan and Chris Miller are the masterminds behind this staple of the Chicago, IL food scene. Given they sport locations in both Wicker Park and Wrigleyville, it’s no surprise Big Star Chicago is a beloved destination for anyone hankering for tacos after a night out on the town. Now those who’ve fallen hard for this Windy City staple can rejoice. Why is that? Big Star Chicago’s got a taco cart that’s book-able for events. A good taco starts with a quality tortilla, and the Big Star team makes their tortillas fresh in-house every single day. Once you’ve got the perfect vessel, it’s time to toss in the fillings. Each taco here comes with its own unique flavor profile. You can sink your teeth into a taco stuffed with marinated spit roasted pork plus grilled pineapple to add a little sweet to your savory. Vegetarian? Enjoy a potato-stuffed taco with chipotle and cotija cheese sprinkled with cilantro to make all that full-bodied flavor pop. By now, you’ve probably picked up on the fact this is the be-all, end-all of taco trucks. So, don’t hesitate to book Big Star Chicago for your next event. Mexican food’s always a crowd-pleaser, so these eats will ensure all your guests leave happy. MUST TRY Pescado — Tilapia coated in a hoppy beer batter plus cabbage and red onion all slathered in chipotle mayo and spritzed with lime. Yum.
