    When Minibar owners Stu Zirin and John Dalton launched the new urban-rustic meets Tex-Mex hot spot, there was total hesitation. How could two guys with one of the hottest bars (and bartenders) in Boystown know anything about tacos? But bite in to the Corona-battered fish or crispy chicken taco and all fears will instantly dissipate. Success in just the right spicy kick and Manchego cheese takes the tacos three steps above fast food. Enjoy small portions after a night of drinking or make plans to stick around all night. The menu offers burgers, seasoned fries and, of course, plenty of cocktails. One of the highlights is it's stunning patio-- a rarity to such a bustling street. Rumor has it that the patio will stay open as often as possible adorning heat lamps when the weather has as much bite as the spicy tacos.
