fast, cheap & veggie-friendly take-out (only) just moved to 39th & Michigan – I got sick of Subway and asked around for some restaurant recommendations- everyone said to check out Shore's, which just moved to 39th and Michigan, where the building is still adorned with "Chicago Ribs" signs. These prove to be a misnomer, as once inside you'll find a wide array of turkey dishes (their speciality), salads, seafood, short ribs, italian favorites, daily specials (today's was braised ox tail) and, shockingly, vegegtarian options too. These include various salads, grilled cheeses, veggie burgers, quesadillas, pasta, etc. Really good french fries and other deep-fried favorites seem to be a staple here. I grabbed a work day lunch and service was fast and friendly, even though the place was pretty busy, Fortunately, there is a parking lot! The food is cheap, yummy, and fresh (for a place that fries a lot of food...) Don't plan on hanging around or dining in, however, as this joint is strictly take out. They're open until 10 pm every night and 8 pm on Sundays and pretty much everyone I know could find at least something to eat there, so next time I'm on the near South Side and starving, I know where I'm heading.
