Bucktown's Best Restaurants: Named after a Central American volcano, Irazu is reputed to be Chicago's first Costa Rican restaurant. The family-run business offers indigenous dishes of plantains, gallo pinto (beans, white rice, spices, and veggies), excellent and affordable burritos, and yummy and distinct shakes concocted with oatmeal, guanabana and tamarind. To venture outside of the ordinary, try tacos filled with mashed potatoes or one of the numerous seafood and chicken dishes. A large outdoor patio and BYOB (without a corkage fee) are even more reasons to love this place. The restaurant does not accept credit cards and there is usually plenty of metered street parking to be found.
