Dinosaurs used to eat rocks to help break up the harsh meals they ingested. Today's deal is much easier on the stomach: $25 for $50 worth of sips and savories at Back Porch, the multisensory eatery in the House of Blues.
Here, Southern-inspired cuisine meets a rustic décor for eclectic yet dependable dishes. Sharable appetizers, such as the delectable spinach dip or spicy calamari, are prime palate preppers. Laid-back entrees include finger-friendly fare like smoked pulled-pork sandwiches, turkey clubs, and burgers loaded with gooey swiss and mushrooms. On a lighter note, guests can get their greens with a tossed Cobb salad or grilled chicken Caesar. Save room for a tangy slice of key-lime pie or a sinful scoop of triple-layer chocolate cake.
Overindulgent eaters can easily walk it off thanks to the restaurant's stroll-ready River North location. Grab a bite after a show with late dinner and nightly live music. Back Porch is open for dinner seven days a week and for lunch Monday through Saturday.

- This house is more than a home of the blues; it's a cultural museum where music, food and art collide. Immerse yourself in it by starting with a meal at HOB's resident restaurant, The Back Porch. – Albrey Nuss, Centerstage Chicago
