Top 5 Best Tacos in Chicago

Best tacos in Chicago!

OK, we're a bunch of nice, humble people just out here serving you the best dang Mexican food in town, but today we'll have to brag a little. About our tacos. We serve them chef-curated or build-your-own style, and we think they're some of the best tacos you can get in Chicago.

So without further ado, here's what we think the top 5 Burrito Beach Chicago tacos are:

#5 Breakfast Tacos

Morning bliss: breakfast tacos. Move over cereal and boring continental breakfast, there's a lot more flavor to be had in the morning! Burrito Beach breakfast tacos come with made-to-order scrambled eggs, cheese, and your choice of flavorful pork chorizo, bacon, ham, or our signature sirloin steak. Put on a toasted tortilla and drizzle some salsa over it and you got yourself the most perfect start of the day.

#4 Char-Grilled Chicken Tacos

A classic. Everybody loves a good chicken taco. But ours come with the best char-grilled chicken in Chicago, marinated in our own signature seasoning, and then perfectly charred on the grill because you just can't beat the taste of fire. Our not-so-basic basic char-grilled chicken is known to be super flavorful already, but we also offer a Baja chicken variation for those who like their tacos a bit more caliente! And the other toppings? Go nuts, we'll make your chicken tacos just the way you like 'em. Add Mexican slaw, cheese, sour cream, corn salsa, pickled jalapeños and pickled onions, or keep it street style with cilantro and onion, a spritz of lime, and your favorite salsa. You really can't go wrong with a Burrito Beach chicken taco.

#3 Fish Tacos

Fish Tacos - something you'll fall for hook, line, and sinker. And yes, you're reading this correctly, we're serving fish tacos at Burrito Beach and some dang good ones too! Our chef-crafted fish tacos keep it simple and oh-so-flavorful. Your choice of perfectly flakey Modelo beer-battered crispy cod or spicy grilled fish, plus Mexican slaw, pico de gallo, and our signature crema magnifica, our take on a spicy chipotle lime crema. Each bite of our fish tacos is a mini vacation for your taste buds and who wouldn't want that, especially during a cold Chicago winter. So come on over and try one today, we're sure you'll be hooked!

#2 Carne Asada Tacos

A guest favorite, our carne asada tacos come with choice cut premium sirloin steak that gets butchered fresh each day in each of our restaurants. A difference in quality you can taste! Marinated in our signature seasoned marinade and grilled to juicy, lightly charred perfection. As for the toppings: those are all you! Make it spicy with our hot three chili salsa and pickled jalapeños, or keep it mild with our sunny salsa, some corn, pico de gallo, sour cream, and maybe some guacamole. Pro tip: our carne asada tacos also taste great with some queso! Especially if it's as tasty as our homemade red chile queso.

#1 Carnitas Tacos

Our newest addition to the menu, and an immediate guest favorite! Our carnitas are made from prime cut pork shoulder and slow braised for over 5 hours to get you that perfect, fall-off-the-bone juicy pulled pork. You gotta try this one to believe it. We serve our carnitas tacos street-style, to let that amazing pork flavor shine through. Topped with fresh onion and cilantro, your choice of salsa (we recommend the salsa verde!), and a bit of lime juice, you'll feel like you just stumbled on Chicago's best kept taco secret.
