Big Star

(1 Ratings)
1531 N. Damen Avenue - Wicker Park, Il
11:30 a.m..-2 a.m. Sunday through Friday; 11:30 a.m..-3 a.m. Saturday

Previously the home of the Pontiac Cafe, Big Star serves up tacos, tequila, great music and a little bit of a swagger. It is the place to hang out in the Summer and the patio is always packed. In the cooler months, heat lamps appear extending the patio experience for as long as possible.

Take out tacos are available but it's cash only ... and there's usually a wait at the window.

There's always an eclectic crowd and great people watching. A little bit of trivia: artist Tony Fitzpatrick designed the star hanging over Damen Avenue.

Pretty good food and a tequila selection that's tasty ... If you remember the old Pontiac well now it has a new name and flair
