The gastronomic gurus at Patrick's Fine Foods & Spirits have been conjuring a menu's worth of classic American dishes since 1969. Tether flighty appetites with a starter of Nachos Supreme, which rests tomatoes, olives, and jalapeños atop a bed of tortilla chips, snuggles them beneath a blanket of chili and cheese, and hires a doting grandmother to sing them to sleep. Slow-cooked corned beef spans the distance between two slices of light rye bread to construct Patrick's Own corned-beef sandwich, and the pub-style fish sandwich's battered cod allows diners to sample seafaring flavors without having to track down a dinner-appropriate wetsuit. Patrick's lambasts the tyranny of state-mandated burger menus by offering a democratizing 12 ingredients on its build-your-own burger menu and helps to wash down savory flavors or burger-soiled hands with a throng of beers.

Papa John's has carefully curated a menu stocked with robust topping options to adorn blank pizza canvases. Unify bubbly discs under a blanketing of freshly cut roma tomatoes, or spice up bites with jalepeño peppers. The pizzeria imports its black olives from Spain's Herrara grove, where they peak in plumpness and accomplish astounding feats of international diplomacy before populating Papa John's pizzas. Meaty options such as grilled all-white-meat chicken, filler-free spicy italian sausage, and hickory-smoked bacon add layers of heartiness to slices, and reinforcing mozzarella with parmesan, romano, or a blend of asiago, provolone, and fontina improves the genetic robustness of cheese.

For the past 30 years, Nardi has never stopped honing his skills as a cook, and he now feeds the masses at his restaurant, Nardi's on Chicago. Nardi's celebrates Joliet's local history as well as casual Italian and American food. In a dining room decked out with a series of vintage photographs that depict former Joliet businesses and bridges, classic pasta, steak entrees and craft cocktails top tables. Nardi uses only organic produce and free-range meats in these dishes. He crafts his signature offering, a simple platter of spaghetti and meatballs, from his grandmother's own recipe.

Gino's East's still stands at its original spot on Michigan and Superior but has also stretched to 10 other city and suburban locations. Whether dining downtown or in St. Charles, customers find Alice Mae’s signature crust piled with mounds of cheese, sauce made from vine-ripened tomatoes, and plenty of fresh toppings—from sausage and pepperoni to jalapeños and canadian bacon. Hot from the oven, pizzas arrive at tables snuggled inside seasoned deep-dish pans, ready to welcome a fork and knife. Thin-crust varieties are also available for those who don’t know how to work silverware, as is a bounty of sandwiches.

Mart Anthony's first opened its doors to the West Loop neighborhood in 1981 and established itself as a homestyle Italian bar and grill. It’s a place where owner Marty Campo treats his customers like family, calling regulars by their first names or “snuggle bear” and making sure everyone is fed well. One longtime patron even claims that his 90-year-old Italian parents still come to the restaurant once a month to enjoy the one place they can get what they consider to be great Sicilian-style food. Even after relocating to River North, the neighborhood eatery continues to garner a loyal following of local patrons.

The homey feeling the restaurant exudes isn’t the only thing drawing in the crowds—people also can’t get enough of the menu that’s based on four generations of family recipes. The signature braciole's rolled filet tenderloins brim with cheese and prosciutto, and platefuls of housemade pasta arrive with a glaze of fresh sauce straight from the churns. Oven-crisped pizzas emerge with hearty handfuls from the selection of 16 available toppings, which include sausage, fresh garlic, and hot giardiniera.
