If you’re familiar with Big Star, then you pretty much know what to expect from Big Star Mariscos in West Town: wooden booths, a large patio, and a menu full of margaritas and tacos. But as the name suggests, this iteration of Big Star is more seafood-focused, with a selection of ceviche, aguachile, and coctels. The food is about on par with the original (very average) but the servers are nice and it’s a pleasant, bright space to grab some cocktails and share some lime-marinated corvina. But if you’re on a mariscos mission, we suggest hitting up one of the other mariscos restaurants in the neighborhood, like Alegrias Seafood.
