Good neighborhood bar with friendly staff, good beers and great food. All of their tacos are great, but personal favorites are carnitas and the sweet potato. Plus you can't get a better deal than a tall boy, taco and shot for $6. Cash only!

Excellent food and really unique taco selection. They have homemade tortillas, which only boots their already great taco offerings. If you want to wet your whistle, the 6 dollar meal goes down smooth. It involves a beer, a shot, and a taco, accounting for about 75% of life's necessities in one fell swoop. They also do have vegetarian options, but remember to bring lots of cash, as they don't take cards!

Every time I came here I got a different taco (as part of the $6 special) and I was always impressed, so one day I came in, sat down, and ate every single taco on the menu (13, I believe). It took all day, but the time and resulting stomach ache was worth it. Individual taco reviews to come!

This is my new favorite place in Chicago. I was really impressed, our server was a sweetheart, the atmosphere is perfect, great music, everything was very clean, clean bathrooms, fantastic drink menu, really good prices and seriously some of the best food I've had in Chicago, great location. Best salsa ever. I had the "Humboldt hillbilly " and it was amazing. I would give this place a hundred stars if I could.

I moved to Chicago a week and a half ago and have already been to this cozy cantina 3 times. Not only are the tacos $3 (only $3!!!), but they're also delicious. My absolute favorite is the carnitas taco. I could eat about 50 of them in one sitting if it wasn't socially frowned upon. I tried their burger last night for the first time because on Tuesdays they're only $5. It tastes like a whopper, but in the best way possible. Char-grilled, topped with the regular fixins and chipotle mayo? Delicious. Add in an extensive beverage menu, great music, and two TVs and you have a quaint and fun place to hang out with your friends or go on a low-key date! This is definitely going to be my go to bar in the neighborhood.

Bullhead Cantina serves up great tacos all around, but especially has interesting vegetarian options, which you don't see in most places. I've tried them all and I have to say they are really good! My two favorite vegetarian options are the Grilled Sweet Potato and the Roasted Beet. Who would have thought to make tacos out of those root veggies?! This place is known as a hipster taco and whiskey bar, but all are welcomed and they have a great selection of craft beers as well. I first came here for a birthday party and all the tacos were ordered for everyone to try. I have returned several times for the tacos only...

This place is a Humboldt Park gem! As my first check in in Humboldt Park, this area is impressing me already. They have great daily specials on drinks that are worth getting. $5 cocktails (including margaritas) on Fridays?! If I worked/lived closer, I would be guzzling a couple. The margaritas are strong and delicious - they actually make the sours in house every morning which is pretty impressive considering many places use an easy mix as their quick fix. They have a variety of tacos and other dishes, but sadly the portion sizes are small. I would suggest about 3-4 tacos per person. Best deal at this establishment: $6 for a tall boy, shot, and taco. Sign me up!
