After the Hike: Local Favorites

Portillo's You haven't had Portillo's until you have had either a beef sandwich (with or without cheddar) or a Chicago Style Dog with everything.
170 W North Ave, Northlake IL — (708) 409-0000
Flying Saucer Be sure to pony up to the full stack of pancakes.
Rootstock Delicious food to pair with an impressive liquor selection or wines from around the world.
Portillo's Chocolate Cake Shake. Enough said.
Puerto Rico Food and Liquors Junior takes care of his customers! Best curated beer selection around these parts.
Bite Café Try the mashbrown from our 100 Best list: The search for the perfect hash browns ends at Bite, where a patty of skin-on potato mash is always fried to a golden crisp.
Parson's Chicken & Fish I just watched a server here pick her butt.
Fatso's Last Stand Try the Mac and Cheese
Fifolet Pretty authentic Cajun (New Orleans) food and cocktails!
Handlebar This biker bar (bikes not motorcycles) in Wicker Park specializes in vegetarian fare.
2311 W North Ave, Chicago IL — (773) 384-9546
Kasia's Polish Delicatessen Pierogi lovers unite! While these polish treats are Kasia's most popular star, delicious Polish food of all varieties can be found here---just like in our sister city of Warsaw.
Smoke Daddy Best mac & cheese.
90 Miles Cuban Cafe It doesn’t require a trip across any ocean to guess that the signatures—like pulled-pork-and-plantain and “Cuban style”–tofu sandwiches—are a welcome addition to this neighborhood.
Big Star Try the michelada from our 100 Best list: We know it contains Tecate, Cholula and Valentina hot sauces, and Maggi. Oh, and we’re certain it's delicious, alleviates hangovers & might just cure cancer.
1531 N Damen Ave, Chicago IL — (773) 235-4039
Dove's Luncheonette Enchilada with a Fried Egg was awesome, so was the Pozole.
1545 N Damen Ave, Chicago IL — (773) 645-4060
Stan's Donuts & Coffee Must try their biscoff donut. Best ever!!!
1560 N Damen Ave, Chicago IL — (773) 360-7386
Yuzu Sushi and Robata Grill Oh yeah and its BYOB just so you know.
Antique Taco ...or as I like to call it, Etsy Taco.
Piece Brewery and Pizzeria The crispy pies hold a lot of weight, so after you choose your pizza style—red, white or New Haven plain—start picking toppings. (If you’re really going New Haven–style, try one with clams and bacon.)
1927 W North Ave, Chicago IL — (773) 772-4422
Flo get there early for brunch on the weekends, enjoy coffee on the house while you wait
