Late Night Taco Stand Robbed Of $2K In Lincoln Park


An armed robber took more than $2,000 from a Lincoln Park late-night burrito shop Saturday morning. No one was injured and no suspects are in custody.

Around 5 a.m., the offender entered through the back door of Taco Burrito Express, 2540 North Halsted.

Inside the restaurant, the robber produced a handgun and demanded the store’s Friday night proceeds, which exceeded $2,000, according to police. He then ran out the back door and fled in an unknown direction.

Police said the offender is a 30-year-old black man who stands 5’4” to 5’8” tall and weighs 190-210 pounds. He was wearing a gray hoodie and dark pants.

Taco Burrito Express is located next to Kingston Mines, a legendary Chicago late-night blues bar.
