At Tom & Jerry’s three locations, which offer takeout, drive-thru, and delivery in addition to dining in, the extensive menu options are constantly competing for your attention. The self-proclaimed “king of the gyros” specializes in plenty of other Greek options, too, including spinach pies and steak fajitas piled into pitas. The eatery also offers a variety of American favorites, from burgers crowned with mushrooms and swiss cheese to Chicago-style beef dogs smothered in chili and cheese.

Family recipes from Athens and staff favorites sizzle and boil atop Kosta’s stoves, and the head chef wields more than 45 years of cooking experience to prepare flaky treats in the ovens. Egg-lemon sauce pools around succulent meat-stuffed grape leaves in the dolmades mezes ($7.50), creating a moat to keep friends' forks and invading knights away. The swordfish shish kebab ($16.50) roasts skewered sea steak and mixed vegetables over an ocean of flames, and olympian herbs soak in the juices of the grilled spring lamb chops ($22.50). Finally, the kataife ($3.50) tickles sweet-craving taste buds with slivered almonds and chopped walnuts enveloped in flaky dough and baked to their Platonic ideal.

Chefs at La Roca Tapas are unafraid of flavor, which they infuse into each sharable dish with classic Spanish ingredients such as salty chorizo, tender grilled shrimp, or sauces based in vinegar, olive oil, and cayenne pepper. The Chicago Sun Times calls the resulting spread full of “tempting options,” which include hot or cold tapas such as the baked goat cheese with tomato sauce, or classic Spanish dishes such as paella. Everything on the menu is made from scratch, including the ink it's printed with, though most likely at an ink factory.

Vegetarian options, such as a veggie dog ($2.79), make the casually comfy eatery welcoming to wayward deer. Park yourself under one of Wild Dogz's flat-screen TVs and sip a strawberry milkshake or grab this Groupon to go and enjoy your hearty helpings of fast foody goodness within the comfort of an armchair or damp ditch.
