But one thing in life is constant: some tacos sound pretty good right now.
Hence: Flaco’s Tacos, the biggest hall of tequila and tacos Wrigleyville has ever seen, now open.
Maybe you know this place’s other smaller locations in the South Loop and Streeterville. This one—located in the original Wild Hare space—has the same weather-beaten palette of some dusty cantina. It has the same type of antique doors. And yes, it has the same quick draw when it comes to frozen margaritas.
The key difference here: this one is big enough to hold both other locations. When you walk in, make a beeline toward the back to what looks like a little taco shack. Place your order. (The menu’s simple: mainly tacos, burritos, quesadillas, tortas, bowls, tamales and nachos.) Then wander around and find a seat. Someone will bring your order shortly.
But here’s a little secret: when it’s a crazy scene after a game, position yourself at that long, full-service bar. No lines. No waiting. The bartenders will take your order and bring it to you. Plus they’ll deliver you a cold Mexican beer or that shot of tequila.
Depending on who won that day.
