Chicago Food n Fun

I took a quick trip to Chicago a couple weeks ago to visit two of my best friends...Tiffany and Lisa. It was a great time and even though I was only there for about 30 hours...we made the best of it and of course had some incredible food! I love Chicago food because you can find some really good comfort food....which of course I love since I grew up in Ohio and we love comfort food here in the Midwest!

Check out these places next time you're in Chi-town!!!!

seriously an amazing sandwich and the potato salad that goes with it is perfect!
