If you're in the area and it's really late, go for the show. That is, if you like people swearing at each other at the top of their lungs.

If you want good Chicago style food, there are about 50 better places.

Chicken Wings in Chicago

My favorite wings are at Bird's Nest... Racine and Altgeld (just north of fullerton). Only three sauce choices, bbq, teriyaki, and hot. Get a pile of assorted flavors and a pitcher of beer, and you'll be a fan right away. Great uncrowded bar for football too.

Tap This

agreed on Leinie's Summer Shandy. It's kind of fun... but I prefer their Sunset Wheat.

Also, Here in Chicago I've been enjoying a lot of Goose Island's 312. Nice Lemon Wheat flavor.

Delicatessen Meyer in L.S. - Closing!

Sad news to report from Lincoln Square... Meyer's is closing in just a few days after they sell out of what's left in the store.

A classic German landmark in Chicago...

So sad...

Sorry if this was mentioned before and I missed it...

Greg and achtung... to clarify, I will specifically be in Round Rock and Georgetown for business; therefore won't be going out of my way to grab lunch in either town... thanks!

Best BBQ in town

Hey, everyone... visiting your fantastic town at the end of the month from Chicago and I just wanted to ask about getting some real TX Barbecue. What's yer favorite?

I'm staying at 183/Capital of TX Hwy... Can't travel too far away from the city, not enough time, but Round Rock and Georgetown would be fine.

Let me preemptively apologize too, I'm sure I'm about the 10,000th dummy who's asked about BBQ. Only other time I was in Austin I went to Stubb's and liked it very much.

Thanks for any help or links to helpful sites.

(ps.. just double checked and saw someone asked the same thing a few posts ago, I'll check that out...)

Favorite Restaurant in Andersonville/Ravenswood area?

Hey everyone! New to the board; just found it earlier this week and a proud Ravenswood resident (Winnemac & Ashland)

Just thought I would introduce myself and poll everyone for their favorite spot in Ravenswood and or Andersonville. I have my favorites, but I'd love to see what everyone else says.

Hey everyone, new to the board. My new favorite Brunch is at Sola, Byron & Lincoln in NorthCenter/Lincoln Square. Reasonably priced, fun menu, absolutely delicious.
