D.S. Tequila Wins 2018 ‘Best Taco’ Honors

The stuffed tortillas (coffee-rubbed steak and tequila shrimp among them) of D.S. Tequila, 3352 N. Halsted, were voted the first place winner of serving up the “Best Tacos” by visitors to 2018’s Sam Adams’ Lakeview Taco Fest. Taking second place was River North’s Blue Agave Tequila Bar & Restaurant.. And taking third place honors at the September 15-16 fest was the neighborhood’s Café Tola, 3612 N. Southport. Congrats to all three!

With its eclectic mix of stores, boutiques and restaurants, the Southport Corridor is arguably one of the hottest commercial strips in Chicago.
This September it gets even more sizzling when the glorious taco is again in the spotlight as the tortilla-wrapped fave is celebrated at this annual food and music happening. Back for its eighth flavor-filled year in 2020, it’s also a celebration of seasonal beers as well as the start of autumn.

Whether one prefers their shells filled with traditional chicken, steak, chorizo and beef, or stuffed with imaginative ingredients such as mushrooms, seafood, goat and duck, this fall fest is a wildly popular fixture to the Windy City’s food scene. More than a dozen local eateries challenge themselves to make the tastiest tacos.

The fest also features special beer and taco pairings, two music stages, crowd-pleasing Mexican wrestlers, activities for kids, and visitors can text vote for Chicago’s “Best Taco.”

A $10 suggested donation benefits the Friends of Lakeview.
