Lunch in Chicago is a great way to experience the local flavor. Whether you’re looking for one of Chicago’s famous deep dish pizzas, an Italian beef sandwich or to dine at one of its many ethnic restaurants, Chicago’s dining scene offers many options.
A bit off the beaten path but not exactly in a quiet neighborhood is Twisted Spoke. You’ll know you found the right place if you see the skeleton on the motorcycle above the joint. Once inside, consider the shrimp po-boys or FatBoy burger and if you’re not in a hurry, the place has more than 400 whiskeys in stock to enjoy.
Craving something more Chicago-y? Pequod’s is arguably one of Chicago’s best dish deep pizza restaurants while Al’s #1 has some of the best Italian beef sandwiches in the city.
Chicago is also home to many ethnic groups that have lovingly brought along their unique tastes. It’s worth heading into Chicago’s ethnically diverse neighborhoods for some authentic flavors and lunch is often the best time to check them out.
