All the things we like most about about the Big Star in Wicker Park - the huge patio, solid tacos, and fun atmosphere - are in full effect at the new location in Wrigleyville. Plus, the new restaurant is twice the size of the original, which means wait times are a lot shorter. The food is the same, with one difference - this location has “hot chips,” a.k.a. nachos where the chips are freshly fried and lightly coated with salsa. These things are delicious, and the main reason we’ll choose this Big Star over the original. Come here with a big group, get the hot chips, and hang outside. Just check the Cubs schedule - it’s right across from the stadium, and will likely be incredibly busy on game day.
