Bullhead Cantina Open and Awesome.

Imagine Big Star and your favorite, neighborhood dive bar had an unassuming, yet delicious restaurant-baby. Their cash-only love child, touting, among other things, tacos and whiskey, is Bullhead Cantina. Having recently opened in Humboldt Park (1143 N California), this place is off to a great start-- offering a comprehensive selection of whiskey, beer and tasty, tasty food.

When you order their tacos (as you should), make sure to try the grilled tilapia, glazed with bourbon and tamarind and the pastor, marinated and served with grilled pineapple, pickled cabbage and cucumbers. Their tacos are served with homemade corn tortillas and made-to-order salsas.

Rumor has it, they'll also be hosting the occasional live show. Keep an eye on this place-- great things to come.

Bullhead Cantina is open Tuesday through Sunday, at 11am.

TACOS. Am I the only person who hears "Cantina" and hears that song from Star Wars?
