Why yes, of course you'd like fries. Skin-on, frites, steakhouse-style, "chips", curly, sweet potato...Here's where to find the cream of the crop.
It's tough to find upscale Irish food, and this charmer nails it. Great date spot that remains untouristy despite its Michigan Ave location.
It's all about the meat here, and I urge you to try anything & everything. Don't be scared off by odd-sounding pig parts or sea creatures like head-on prawns. Awesome beer selection too.
The cool decor alone is a draw, but the veggie-friendly menu of sandwiches, pizzas, etc goes way beyond normal bar bites. The PBR & burger special is a steal.
A total gem of a wine bar with sweet service and amazing food. Try the brunch; the menu change weekly and is packed w/ seasonal goodness.
Nothing short of burger heaven! Try the Smokin' Shroom if you're a fungus fan. And make sure to get it on a pretzel roll. Surprisingly tasty PB&J too!
Talk about a room w/ a view! Love the riverfront seating...not to mention the marbled ribeye @ iPad wine list. Jumbo desserts worth trying.
Diner fare is trendy @ this near-perfect spot. Best service in town, IMO. You must try the fried bologna sandwich-just trust me. And the mille feuille for dessert is worth a trip alone.
Bartenders are genius (and fun!) & can concoct potions tailored to your tastes. Plan to eat here & stick around for free cookies @ midnight!
It's always hoppin' here, and for good reason. Grass-fed burgers are juicy and well-priced. I love the bison burger too. Shakes are a must! Expect to wait on weekends.
Shockingly awesome bar food, from the fancy popcorn to juicy burger & boozy Italian ice. Beer menu is top-notch, as is service. Lovely patio
A small menu of savory pies brings culinary-curious folks in droves. Try the mushroom-kale pie and a side of "deluxe fries." Fish fries on Fridays, too.
Tons of possible burger combos (you select it all- down to the spice blend) and I've yet to try a dud. Try the bison and don't skip the fries.
Hooray for a fun, healthy option. Not a speck of meat on the menu, but you won't miss it. Try the "Chicken" Run Ranch burger.
A glorious hole in the wall with some darn good franks (opt for the slightly smoky Polish). Portions are hefty, price is right, and service is ultra-relaxed. Love the pup-friendly outdoor seating.
Fries are amazing, turkey burgers rock, and shakes are a must. Great for picky eaters (build your own combo). Wallet-friendly lunch pick.
