1~ Portillos. A Chicago staple. Started in 1963 as a hot dog stand. You could say it’s grown. They say “Get the hot dog, the Italian Beef, and the chocolate cake!” I tried 2 out of the 3.
2~ Lou Malnati’s. A Chicago Pizza institution. Many consider it as having the ‘best deep dish’ in the city. It was gooood…
5~ Chicago Diner. This was recommended to me as a brunch spot and a place to eat a bit healthier. Mostly vegan. Delicious and prepared with care. I got the Chilaquiles. Yum.
