Good Night Goose Island in Wrigleyville

  I have always had a fond spot in my heart for the Goose Island Brewery Tap in Wrigley ville and I had been quite sad to find it closed last time I was in Chicago. So on this visit I had been really happy to find it open again, but that happiness was to…

Jake Melnicks Corner Tap – BBQ Bar-style

I found myself at Jake Melnicks ‘Corner Bar’ looking for a ‘beer and a bite’. It was cold outside and I did not want to wander the streets hunting too long for food so I just took a chance and heading inside to see what they could do for me. Bit of the menu I really…

Eggsperience the breakfast in River North

Eggsperience was one of the first places that I ever had breakfast at in Chicago. I was staying in a hotel just near to the Grand El stop on the Red line while I looked for my first apartment in the City. Over the years I came back here pretty often, sometimes sitting up at the…

M Burger – A Good ‘Old Fashioned Burger’

M Burger in Chicago is a simple yet effective local burger chain with Five joints scattered around the city. The first one opened only 5 years ago in 2010 and over the few years that I lived in Chicago I think I have eaten in them all. It was only recently though now on one of…

Flub a Dub Chub’s

“You had me at hello” Awesome name and it would have been rude not to enter to see if this place lived up to a start such as that! The shop is downstairs in the basement and it really is quite a unique spot. The walls are strewn with drawings from kids and big kids alike…

Frank ‘n’ Dawgs

This is my fourth visit to Frank and Dawgs and I love the place, it is a good job it is not on my block or I would be eating there until I was sick of the place or until I was a candidate for the Biggest Loser (well a serious candidate anyway, just to fend…

Dog House Flashback (Chicago Sausage Fest 2011)

Memory flashback to June 4th 2011 Wrigley Field I knew there was something familiar about the Mayor Daley at the Dog House last night. I had already had one from their stall at Chicago Sausage Fest, and one of their Alligator Sausages too. Must have been on a subliminal wander last night my hot dog…

Chicagos Dog House for Gourmet and Speciality sausage

It’s dark, wet, damp and miserable and pickings by the Fullerton el stop are looking sparse. Finger in the air time, East or West? Despite the hollow glow of the golden arches permeating through the drizzle I gamble on east just because Lincoln Avenue is that way. Across the road a neon open sign draws me…
