Chef's Table: Milwalky Taco and Oscar Lee's Barbecue - SOLD OUT
Chef's Table Events bring foodies together in an exclusive, intimate setting. Each restaurant we visit takes care to show off its best, and each experience is exquisite, unique and is an ideal way to explore Chicagoland's culinary scene without spending a fortune.
Summer's nearly here, so let's get ready with a Chef's Table that features not one, but two favorite summer foods:
TACOS AND BARBECUE!
What do you do when you love both tacos and barbecue and you're a chef? You open two restaurants, that's what! In what can only be described as a stroke of brilliance, Chef Lee Kuebler dishes delicious barbecue at Oscar Lee's Barbecue (named for his son) right next door to his ode to that most perfect of foods, Milwalky Taco.
At our Chef's Table event, you'll get to try food and drink from BOTH Milwalky Taco AND Oscar Lee's Barbecue.
Genius, isn't it?
Check out a bit about these gems, and then get your ticket ASAP. Attending this Chef's Table event is a no-brainer.
Milwalky Taco is a place where you and your buddies can belly up to the bar and drown your sorrows in tequila and queso. It's a place where you and your family can celebrate a day that ends in Y with handmade tortillas cradling fresh vegetables and tender meats. It's a place where you'll be tempted to line your pockets with our housemade salsas, (though we discourage that).
Chef/owner Lee Kuebler's taqueria menu features starters (guacamole; queso fundido; crispy fried calamari), tacos (carnitas; pescado; panza; carne asada; barbacoa; lengua; camaron; pollo; papas con rajas), sides, salads and dessert.
As if tacos didn't already make you happy, Milwalky Taco has a Happy Hour:
Tuesday-Friday, 2:30-4:30 p.m. Half price margs and free chips and salsa. Tuesdays are also half-off margaritas and $2 carnitas tacos. Wednesdays you get half-off whiskey pours and Thursdays you can get tequila half price.
Oscar Lee's boasts central-Texas style, slow and smoky barbecue, from tender prime brisket and juicy pulled pork, to slabs barley clinging to the bone. Classic side dishes, desserts, craft brews and cocktails round out the menu. Dine in, order curbside carryout, or have the mobile smoker parked at your next event.
Happy Hour takes place Tuesday-Friday from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Guests may choose $1 hog wings (baby back ribs breaded, fried and tossed in honey-garlic buffalo sauce), $2 domestic brews (plenty to choose from) and $5 whiskey Cokes.
On Tuesdays, Oscar Lee's Sandwiches are buy-one, get-one all day (11 a.m.-9 p.m.). The selections include: Brisket; Pulled Pork; Turkey; Slider Trio; The Mouth Breather; OLB Cubano; Turkey BLT; Pulled BBQ Jackfruit; and Banh Mi.
Chef Lee Kuebler features a themed dinner item, Wednesday through Saturday nights: Wednesdays, Ramen Night; Thursdays, Fried Chicken Night; Fridays, Fish Fry; Saturdays, $12 Burger and Fries. These dishes are only available on their special night and the preparation changes weekly.
At our Chef's Table event, we'll explore the best of both restaurants. Dishes are shared and served family style, with a menu designed to provide an overall taste of what Milwalky Taco and Oscar Lee's Barbecue offer.
Tickets to this exclusive, inclusive event are only $35 and food, drinks, tax and gratuity are included. Additional gratuity optional (but is always nice!). Seats are extremely limited, so RSVP today!
No paper ticket required! Once payment is received we'll have your name on the list. Sorry - no refunds or credits if you can't make it, but you can give your spot to a friend.
