Welcome To Flash Taco

Flash Taco opened its doors in Wicker Park (Map) in 1998. The store serves Mexican food upstairs and "Underdog" hot dogs in the basement.

Burritos are a late night food of choice in the city of Chicago and Flash Taco is always packed with hungry gringos after the Wicker Park bars close.

Some of the awards Flash Taco has won include "Best Burrito" (Chicago Magazine, June 2000) and "Best Late Night Munchies" (Red Eye-Metromix 2005).

You can check out the menu on the official site here.

As a recent transplant from Chicago, I was shocked and dismayed that you gave Flash Taco such a high rating! That place is one of the worst in the city...and only halfway decent after slugging down a dozen or more drinks. Even the immediate area, one would be better off at La Pasadita, El Cid, or Irazu. Not to be a dick, but next time you're in the windy city, do yourself the favor and branch out a little. Two meals at Flash Taco is two too many!

I could not agree more with I like Chicago Burritos. La Pasadita can compete on a national level. Flash Taco cannot.

I will send pictures and write a review on Burritos if you want. I don't eat burritos often but when I do, I preferr La Pasadita Carne Asade ones.
