Good eats in Chi-town

This is for anyone that either lives in Chicago or has been there frequently. My friends and I are going to take a little road trip down there next week to parouse the town and catch a Cubbies game. I was hoping to find a kick ass restaurant(no bars plz, only 19 and I don't use fakes out of state). I've been to tourist spots like the Cheesecake factory and the Berghoff restaurant. Plz include where it is located, and what is good there. After we get back, I'll post how the food was. Thanks!

Pizzaria Uno has yummy chicago deep dish pizza, as well as Gino's East.

Pizzeria Uno
29 E. Ohio St.
312-321-1000

Founder Ike Sewell, now deceased, introduced Chicago to deep-dish pizza when he opened Pizzeria Uno in 1943, and it has become the city's signature dish. Pizzeria Due opened a short hop away (at 619 N. Wabash) in 1955 and offers the same menu in a larger space. Many tourists are surprised when they hear their pizza will take a minimum of 45 minutes to prepare, though a sign outside warns them of this fact. An "Express Lunch" is available between 11:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. The room's not much, a total of 18 small tables and five booths, plus an eight-seat bar. (Pizzeria Due is more lavish, and can handle parties of 30-40 people.) The pizza, not the atmosphere, brings 'em in.


Gino's East of Chicago
633 N. Wells St.
312-943-1124

Gino's East of Chicago abandoned its rather cozy location on Superior Street and moved into the voluminous space formally known as Planet Hollywood. Fans of the original location will notice the graffiti-scrawled walls were kept in tact and moved to the new location. Diners can still tackle huge deep-dish pizzas and live to write about it. Management says the place is dedicated to preserving its family appeal. It's a place for people to have a great time, write on the walls and eat good pizza.

There are many many other good restaurants in Chicago. It is awesome city for ethnic cuisine as well.

Just north of Chicago, in Evanston, is Flattop Grill (on Church), a choose your own stir fry place. Aside from lots of fresh ingredients to choose from (you pick the amount too, from a long buffet) they have a lot of amazing sauces, various ways to have it served (normal stirfry, soup, egg rolls, etc) , and delicious desserts (cheesecake!)
If you like Indian, Devon Avenue has a lot of good restaurants.

Wish I saw this in time for you, but I did want to add one more restaurant for anyone else who may stumble on this thread looking for good places to eat in Chicago.

<a href="http://www.stefanirestaurants.com/stefanis.htm">Stefani's Ristorante Italiano</a>
1418 W. Fullerton
Chicago, IL 60614
773.348.0111

Located in the heart of Lincoln Park, Stefani's Ristorante has been serving traditional Northern Italian cuisine for more than 20 years. The restaurant occupies a three-story apartment building built in 1874 and evokes the comfortable and festive atmosphere found in the Tuscan region of Italy. Unbelievable pastas are made fresh daily in our own pasta shop. Entrees include tender veal dishes, rotisserie chicken and enticing pasta dishes. On the lighter side, we offer pizzas from our wood burning oven and variety of fresh salads. Stefani's has four private party rooms and a romantic outdoor courtyard.


I love this place - they have EXCELLENT Italian food.

As far as pizza places in chicago you have giordanos, it's a chain, but it offers much the same style of pizza as uno's and I personally think the pizza is a little better. There's a great italian restaurant by the name of maggianos (spelling?) that has a location or two, but if you go there expect to spend $20 a person or more. Other than that, there's tons of good restaurants, just explore.
