They're not just great when soaking up booze in your belly—cheese fries are an ideal snack all the time. Here are my favorites.
Casual bar with a New Orleans bent - the cheese fries are topped with layers of shredded cheese and served with hot sauce, and televisions will broadcast the game.
A classic late night spot in Lincoln Park -it's a party atmosphere after midnight.
Go for the thin griddled burgers, cheese fries with Merkt's cheddar, and milkshakes.
The inventive sausages may draw you in, but the classics will keep you coming back. The bratwurst is a nearly perfect sausage.
The Chicago-style tofu sandwich and biscuits and gravy are favorites. Great for both vegans and omnivores.
Cheese fries include ghetto fries, topped with onions, cheese, gravy, BBQ sauce and giardiniera. There's also lots of burgers and other sandwiches, like pepper and egg.
Great beer selection, cozy bar, and friendly staff! A nice change from lots of the Diversey bars.
Go for zany sausages like andouille topped with red beans and shrimp and pillowy waffle fries.
I get the spicy shrimp banh mi, but you'll want to bring along someone to share some Korean-influenced tacos as well.
I am ALWAYS in the mood for Au Cheval. The bologna sandwich is my favorite, but I also love the burger, the fries with mornay sauce, the duck heart hash, the matzo ball soup, the salad...
Casual spot for pizza with cracker-thin crust and polish dishes. Try the pies made with sausages.
You must get an order of fries and you must get the BBQ bacon burger.
A charming little spot in Bridgeport, Pleasant House makes delicious savory pies stuffed with ingredients like mushroom and kale. The gravy chips, with cheese and steak, are delicious.
The newest outpost of Jerry's offers the same giant menu of sandwiches and beer and televisions to watch the game. The Cuban sandwich is a tasty rendition.
