The original Dear Franks location in Deerfield flung open its doors back in 1978 and has served the same quality dogs, burgers, and fries ever since, only now at two additional locations in Niles and Glenview. Charred Vienna Beef hot dogs drag through a garden of traditional Chicago-style toppings, and freshly cut, double-crisped fries are draped in creamy wisconsin sharp cheddar. Italian-beef sandwiches, tuna melts, and assorted sausages also assuage cravings for comfort food, as do chocolate malts and teddy bears stuffed with foie gras.

Boston Blackie’s efficient staff swiftly dishes up a classic menu of beefy burgers, overstuffed sandwiches, and crisp salads chaperoned by crunchy fries. Pairs or quartets of dining chums can chow down the Unarmed burger’s unadorned half-pound patty or keep out rascally condiment rustlers by corralling the Cowboy burger’s herds of pico de gallo, guacamole, and melted pepper jack cheese inside a choice of four buns. Chefs can slather a succulent grilled chicken breast sandwich in six types of dressings and seasoning, and forks can frolic through verdant foliage of an organic-greens salad peppered with sun-dried tomatoes, figs, mushrooms, and caramelized pecans. Meanwhile, thick-cut steak fries and crispy home-style fries spar for real estate on each plate’s sought-after pastures, and frosty sodas tickle taste buds as their bubbly whitecaps cascade across parched palates.

Stowed away inside the seven-story atrium of the Embassy Suites Chicago North Shore rests Cadwell's Grille, an upscale restaurant helmed by Executive Chef John Grosskopf. A Cooking Academy of Chicago graduate, Chef Grosskopf has created menus and recipes for several fine dining restaurants in the Chicago area. For the Cadwell’s Grille menu, Grosskopf puts a contemporary spin on American classics by stuffing meatloaf with white-cheddar-chive mashed potatoes, frying french fries in truffle oil, and crowning burgers with gourmet ingredients such as chipotle aioli and warm bacon vinaigrette. Each dish is plated delicately on white serving ware, allowing diners to clearly see the components of each entree and celebrity faces in each swirl of dipping sauce.

For nearly five decades, the staff at Tony's Subs has piled meats and cheeses onto hearty submarine sandwiches. Armed with loaves of Gonnella bread, the crew stacks toppings and condiments to customers' specifications before running subs through an oven or wrapping them up as is. Sandwiches can be paired with sides such as a New Orleans–style olive salad, Lay's potato chips, or Carol's giant cookies, each of which is stamped with Paul Bunyan's giant seal of approval.
