Antique Taco

Antique Taco in Wicker Park is my absolute favorite place for Taco Tuesday. Rick and Ashley Ortiz started this restaurant with the freshest ingredients the midwest can provide through a delightful menu that reflects Rick's experience in every kitchen he'd ever worked in, along with his travels abroad.

Inside this cute space, they've got an impressive array of tacos to choose from. You can't go wrong with their mouthwatering Grilled Steak Tacos with local beef, morita salsa, arugala, onion, queso, and cilantro; or my personal favorite, the Garlic Shrimp Tacos made with white shrimp, elote-style cauliflower, basil and avocado salsa, and fried kale.

If tacos aren't your thing, they also have the best Chili Cheese Curds covered with chorizo chili, beer battered cheese curds, fresh tortilla chips, guajillo and cilantro crema, pickled jalapeno, pink onions, and scallions. I'm getting hungry again just thinking about them.
