The original Carnitas Uruapan is a small counter-service spot in Pilsen that specializes in, yes, carnitas - and this is a (much) bigger location in Gage Park. It’s great for large groups, parties, or just dinner with a few friends who want to eat as much pork as humanly possible. You can order individual tacos, or just get belly, shoulder, or rib meat (our favorite) by weight. Whichever one(s) you choose will be juicy and delicious, and come with some fantastic housemade tortillas.
