Taco Fest is Spicing Up the South Loop Next Week

The South Loop is going South of the Border

For those of us who like to celebrate Tuesdays with a certain savory, tortilla-wrapped treat, next Tuesday is no ordinary Taco Tuesday.

If you’ve ever imagined a perfect world where you can sample the best tacos your city has to offer, all in one delicious sitting, then this is the event for you. From Mago Grill & Cantina after work to eat your way through Taco Fest.


Love tacos? So do we. Find the best tacos by neighborhood on our infographic.

Hosted by Chef Juan Luis Gonzalez of Mago Grill & Cantina, witness creations by chefs from restaurants all over the city as they compete for awards for the ultimate tacos. A ticket gets you access to a variety of taco samples, a cash bar (with a valid ID), giveaway opportunities, and is good for one free margarita at Mago.

Your ticket helps others from going hungry, as proceeds will benefit the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Early-bird general admission tickets are $30 for adults and $15 for kids 12 and under.
