Your Chicago takeout and delivery guide awaits…
Loop, West Loop, Wrigleyville
Do-Rite Donuts – who says you can’t eat donuts for a meal? Although the pro move here is to get the spicy fried chicken served on a glazed donut for a perfectly balanced lunch with all the right vitamins and minerals.
Eleven City Diner – I did a corned beef shootout a few years ago, and Eleven City’s was the best (yes, it bested Manny’s). Part of the charm of Eleven City is the wise-cracking of owner Brad Rubin, but since he’s not likely coming to your doorstep, you’ll have to settle for a killer patty melt and some latkes.
Lincoln Park, Ukrainian Village
Fatso’s Last Stand – If you love Red Hot Ranch, you’ll love Fatso’s fried shrimp and In N’ Out-style griddled burgers. Don’t sleep on the mac and cheese featuring cavatelli dripping in gooey cheddar.
Mi Tocaya – Pollo con mole negro in su casa! Yes, please.
Longman and Eagle – L&E is back with tavern butter burgers, smothered pork chops and truffle mac and cheese. Also, if you’ve somehow got some money burning a hole in your dungarees, they’re offering a bourbon bottle flight featuring single barrel selections of Eagle Rare and Blanton’s.
