Their Story

Wedge Tequila Bar & Grill stands out among Victor Fuentes’ other restaurants around the Midwest, which include El Toro and Toro Loco. Wedge caters less to families and more to those who want authentic Mexican street food paired with some of the best tequila around. You don’t have to be a tequila expert to enjoy the Wedge, but they do have over 140 different bottles of tequila behind the bar and wooden lockers on the walls where VIP customers can keep special bottles of their favorite tequilas.

The restaurant has a cohesive, inviting atmosphere, the source of which only becomes apparent when you pay attention to the small details – fresh yellow flowers atop each table, utensils hand-tied with twine, and countless empty tequila bottles filled with shiny stones lined up along the windows.

The menu is much more compact than El Toro’s, with the dominant item being tacos served in 10 varieties from Michoacan-style braised pork to tender braised cow tongue. Head manager, Marco, says that what makes a taco is the salsa – it’s not so much the spice level that makes for a great salsa, but the flavor. Regardless of how you like your tacos, they are almost always better with a margarita; Wedge makes refreshing margaritas using tequila infused with the likes of hibiscus water and cinnamon.

To keep things fresh, both the drink and food menus are constantly changing throughout the year with input from the entire kitchen and management staff. The tacos, tortas and tamales at the Wedge are best enjoyed on the shaded outdoor patio paired with the margarita of the day.
