Chicago

As a kid growing up in Chicago my dad being a foodie like me would take me and sister to all the neat little ethnic restaurants. One thing Chicago does well is food; family owned restaurants with small dining rooms and very few tables are abundant in Chicago offering some of the best food in the country. Chicago is also legendary for it’s style of fast food; Gyros, Italian Beef, Polish sausage, Pizza, Pizza Puffs and of course the legendary Chicago Hot Dog.
