Check out some of these inexpensive eateries to nourish your belly on your travels….
Stop off at Big Star & visit their patio area for some delicious beer & tacos stuffed with lamb shoulder, pork belly, and non-gringo ingredients like beef heart are only a few bucks. 1531 North Damen Avenue.
Hanging around the downtown area? Drop in at Portillo’s (on Clark & Ontario) and eat at a classic Chicago dining spot. Recommendable guilty pleasure items include their italian beef, hot dogs, cheeseburgers, and chocolate cake milk shakes.
Reason #2,337 we love our neighborhood! Hot dogs from the Dog House. We’ve recommended their extravagant creations when it comes to encased meats, and we can’t help but recommend them yet again…oh and try their frips, the best hot dog accompaniment EVER, located just west of Lincoln Ave. on Fullerton.
Take a quick trip to Uptown for some cheap French Vietnamese award winning sandwiches at Bale (literally like $4 a sandwich). They also make some most excellent bubble teas. Located at 5014 N. Broadway Ave.
