After the Ride: Local Favorites

Club 81 Too This place is packed with locals on Fridays for the house specialty of walleye pike. Besides the crispy fish, you’ll get pickled beets, cottage cheese, fries, slaw and raw green onion for $13.95.
13157 S Avenue M, Chicago IL — (773) 646-4292
Doreen's Pizzaria The pizza is fuckin good best pizza
Wendy's Trying the new fries. They aren't bad, but apparently 99 cents gets you enough fries for a toddler with a small appetite...
3516 E 118th St, Chicago IL — (773) 646-4420
Portillo's Chocolate Cake Shake!!!!!
Al Bawadi Grill Try the Motawma from our 100 Best list: Move on to motawma, the ethereal whipped collision of garlic and potatoes that makes the trek to Bridgeview well worth it.
7216 W 87th St, Bridgeview IL — (708) 599-1999
Uncle Mike's Place Try the Filipino breakfast!
1700 W Grand Ave, Chicago IL — (312) 226-5318
Flo get there early for brunch on the weekends, enjoy coffee on the house while you wait
Yuzu Sushi and Robata Grill Oh yeah and its BYOB just so you know.
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.
Fatso's Last Stand Try the Mac and Cheese
Antique Taco ...or as I like to call it, Etsy Taco.
Fifolet Pretty authentic Cajun (New Orleans) food and cocktails!
Kanela Breakfast Club Oatmeal, Lorraine scramble, and breakfast burrito are great
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.
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
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
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
Puerto Rico Food and Liquors Junior takes care of his customers! Best curated beer selection around these parts.
