Because sometimes you just need a break from the scene.
Don't overlook this French gem! It's far from hip, but the steak & frites are the best I've tasted. Cute outdoor patio & good date spot!
I love Jury's because the ambience and food are completely un-trendy. So refreshing. It's true--the burger is pretty great.
Cheap Mex that's actually delicious! Go for a pitcher of margs, delightfully greasy chips w/ guac & burritos. Servers are ultra-sweet.
Wow, this is seriously tasty food (and great service!). Delve into the Taiwanese menu-don't worry, your server will translate it for you-and you'll be richly rewarded. From the Chinese menu, don't miss the potstickers.
Absolutely nothing fancy here! I'm a fan of the fluffy pancakes and strong, bottomless coffee.
The burgers are simple yet legendary and the shaded outdoor patio is as good as it gets. Dog-friendly to boot!
Good daily lunch specials, esp meatball subs on Tuesdays. Friendly, no-fuss counter service. Hit up the dart board @ happy hour.
Not the most amazing food you'll ever sample, but a piece of Chicago history nonetheless. The rootbeer is legendary.
Old World charm and flavors continuously draw me here. Calamari is a highlight,as are pastas and deeply flavored tiramisu.
