Even in its 60th year of business, Dick’s Drive-In is still doing things the old-fashioned way, serving all-natural beef patties, hand-cut fries, hand-dipped milkshakes, and root-beer floats. Its glowing orange sign is so iconic that Washington-bred rap duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis recently shot a music video on the Broadway location’s rooftop.
Chicago-style hot dog: a regional favorite, it’s topped with relish, tomatoes, chopped white onions, sport peppers, a dill pickle spear, and a dash of celery salt.

At The Iron Bull Sports Bar and Grill, patrons keep one eye on their plates and the other on any of the thirteen big-screen and two projection televisions. Although it’s chiefly known as the area’s unofficial home for Chicago Bears expats, the bar claims to carry “every sports package imaginable,” showing games and matches from the NFL, UFC, NBA, and NCAA. Bites ordered from the pub’s menu keep fans fueled up no matter what’s on, with hand-pressed burgers and sandwiches that also double as erasers for plays diagrammed using ketchup.
