CHICAGO, IL – October 2014 – Operating out of Nacional 27 at 325 W. Huron Street, Tallboy Taco is ready to offer River North an assortment of tacos for both lunch and dinner, as well as carryout. Chef/Partner Tim Hockett, who also oversees Nacional 27 and M Burger, created Tallboy Taco with a desire to serve the neighborhood great tacos on homemade tortillas in a quick, casual and funky environment.

“Nacional 27 has always been passionate about tacos and we’ve never been open for lunch, so an idea was born to serve a variety of the portable Mexican street snack out of the bar area,” says Hockett. “Tacos are perfect to share and historically speaking, going back to the Mexican cowboy days, they were also meant to eat on-the-go.”

Made with fresh, handmade corn tortillas every day, Tallboy Taco’s menu is comprised eight varieties, including Beer-Battered Fish ($3.50), Cowboy 12-Hr Smoked Brisket ($4), Pork Al Pastor ($3.50), Gunthorp Farms Carnitas ($3.50) and Veggie Crispy Avocado ($3). A list of starters includes Chips & Salsa ($2), Chips & Guacamole ($6), Charred Corn Fundido ($6) and a Cheese Crisp ($7). Cold tallboys, cocktails and aqua frescas are also available. Lunch is served counter-service style and dinner is a full-service, sit-down experience. Carryout is available for lunch and dinner.

Tallboy Taco is located at 325 W. Huron Street and is open for lunch (counter service), Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and for dinner (full service) Monday through Thursday, 3 to 10 p.m.; Friday, 3 p.m. to midnight; and on Saturday, 4 p.m. to midnight.
