There is a new taco place that opened up last year called Taco Joint. The first time I went it was their 2nd week after they opened and my review was just so-so. I gave it a second chance a few nights ago and boy was I wrong! Not only were the tacos tasty and not dry (which is a problem a lot of tacos have), the margarita’s were deeeeelicious! Honestly one of the best I’ve had in the city. I forgot the name of the drink my date had but it had a smokey quality to it which really brought out an interesting taste to the sweet and salty margarita.
Anyway – onto the food!
Here’s the Al Pastor.
My favorite of the night – ceviche tacos.
Fish Taco! (forgot what kind of fish, but moist and flaky)
A close contender of the ceviche taco… goat. Great spicy flavor.
Saving the best for last… Elotes. SO SO SO darn good. Sweet, salty, spicey, creamy and CORN! Heaven. I would go back just for this.
Ok I lied, this margarita beat the elotes but only by a tad.
Oh, and the service at Taco Joint is awesome – the servers are really happy to be there and they just have fun while they work and it shows.
If you’re in Chicago, go check it out!
