Kuma’s Too – Devilishly good burgers at 666

Kuma’s Too at 666 West Diversey Parkway has all the same burgers as the original Kumas Corner, but it doesn’t quite have the down and dirty grunge that you had at the original location. Perhaps it is because I know that it is in the old space that housed the old Counter Burger which closed back in 2013, and perhaps…

Etno Grill – The day I met the “Spicy Balkan”

  I very rarely have the time to go back to many of the places that I have written about on the El Stop Project, which is a little bit sad in some ways as there are some really great places that I could easily eat at every day. The Etno Grill is one of those places….

Wieners Circle – Nice Charburger

I have to be honest I was really confused when I got over to the Wiener’s Circle. I thought that it was one of Chicago’s famous hot dog joints, but as you can see the sign outside proclaims that it is the “Home of the Char-Broiled Cheddarburger” So what to do? I came here to eat a hot…

Back to the Etno Grill

One of my first blog posts was after a visit to the Etno Grill, when I was advised to return to try one of their burgers. I have since been back twice and have taken that advice, I am just noting that so that you don’t think I scoffed down these two burgers at one visit….

Etno Village Grill – Great Pork Sandwich

From the train on the brown line between the Diversey and Fullerton El stations I keep on getting distracted by a building with a cow on the roof.  OK so its not exactly next to an actual El station stop, but I can see it and the cow means either that it sells meat to eat or…
