Baconfest Chicago is like Lollapalooza, except instead of bands, you have a talented crew of chefs, and instead of music, well, there's bacon.
'Edzo's' on Serious Eats
To commemorate the end of Amy's momentous quest for the best cheese fries in Chicago, we needed an equally epic and ridiculous finale. We couldn't think of anything more foolish than attempting to eat all the fry combinations at Edzo's Burger Shop.
Ready for Valentine's Day? We have all of you reservation-less, plan-averse lovers covered. Pull the old "it's a weeknight, so I knew you'd rather fill up on milkshakes than wine" card and bring your date (or friend!) to one of these lower key spots.
What we love about the best cheap eats in Lincoln Park is that there is an appealing mix of old school joints and new concepts hungry to win over the crowds.
Just about everything you love about Edzo's is here in the new Lincoln Park location. The burgers are griddled. The fries are still hand-cut and fried twice. The shakes are freshly blended and thick. Even the space feels the same.
Our College Tour series continues with Northwestern University. With a main campus in Evanston and a downtown campus in Streeterville, there are loads of options.
I went to Lollapalooza to eat. Sure, I caught a few sets along the way, but a decent number of the food options at the massive Chicago festival are distinguished by the simple fact that they are surprisingly, consistently good. Here are some of my favorites.
The best part about grilled cheese is that simplicity is part of the deal. This sandwich is as good now as it was when we were eight years old. But even we were surprised by how many great grilled cheese sandwiches there are out there. This list is by no means complete, but here are 21 grilled sandwiches we are currently infatuated with in Chicago
I'm not going to toss all my food writing street cred out the window and tell anyone to get the grilled cheese at Edzo's instead of the burgers. But if you are in the mood for a grilled cheese, Edzo's dishes up a fun and delicious version.
We haven't met many people who don't love a great french fry, and here in Chicago, there are a ton of places to choose from. We scoured the city to compile this list of 10 favorite fry sources. They range from sweet potato fries to foie gras fries to the more classic, skin-on ones.
