The USDA's food pyramid traditionally puts bread on the bottom because some of the most savory suppers are best served on buns. Snare some bunned fare with today's Groupon: for $9, you get $18 worth of casual Chicago-style eats and drinks at Johnny Chicago's in Midtown.

Seeking shelter in a steamed poppy-seed bun, Johnny Chicago's hot Midwestern meats find refuge on the corner of Old Seward and 36th Avenue. The down-to-earth menu presents a panoply of proteins for carnivores to consider, along with a variety of veggie options. Traditional Chicago-style dogs ($3.95) are outfitted with "the works": tomatoes, pickles, onions, bright green relish, peppers, yellow mustard, and a dash of celery salt. Gorgonzilla, a gorgonzola-topped veggie patty wreaking havoc on hunger and skyscrapers ($5.75), makes palate-pals with Johnny's venerated sweet-potato fries ($3.45 for large). Symphonies of colorful salads await those seeking beneficial bites.

Reviews

Johnny Chicago's was featured in the Anchorage Daily News, 83% of Urbanspooners like it, and eight Yelpers give it a four-star rating:

  • Johnny Chicago's is fast food in look and efficiency only. It does favorites better than the quick-serve giants, offers a menu filled out by some American hand-food archetypes and delivers across-the-board consistency and quality that all restaurants should strive for. – Josh Niva, Anchorage Daily News
  • As a displaced Chicagoan, I can tell you this is where I go to get my fix. They have all the Chicago standards, and it's done well. – Snodraken, Urbanspoon

Johnny Chicago’s

Foodie John Mayser dined his way around the world while serving in the United States Air Force, but as he told the Anchorage Daily News, he never found a replacement for the Italian and Chicago-style dishes he grew up with. He cut his teeth and several hundred hot dog buns running a food truck before settling in at Johnny Chicago’s, a casual sit-down restaurant that specializes in authentic Windy City fare. For the past three years, the menu has drawn in diners with its italian-beef sandwiches—served dry, wet, or dipped—and hickory-smoked vienna franks piled high with the works: mustard, relish, onion, tomato wedges, sport peppers, pickle, and celery salt. Recently, Johnny Chicago's rolled out three authentic types of pizza—light and airy Sicilian, towering Chicago-style deep dish, and classic New York-style thin crust—that stand ready to tempt palates with homemade sauce and heaps of high-quality ingredients.

Online food descriptions present a full history of each Chicago-based eat, as well as the proper technique for throwing it at a disgraced politician.
