Antique Taco

1360 N. Milwaukee Ave.
Chicago, IL 60622

Critic’s Notes

At his throwback storefront, Rick Ortiz delivers a modern Midwestern take on Mexican favorites. His poutine-style spin on chili and cheese curds mixes Wisconsin cheddar cheese curds in zippy chorizo chili; bacon, crispy kale, and local mushrooms show up in tasty turns on traditional tacos. Order at the counter, starting with a rosemary-infused margarita and finishing with a thick horchata milk shake.
