Peanut butter and jelly’s famed union was the product of their shared love of bread and unending hatred for un-sticky fingers. Adhere to another edible pair with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of classic eats at Lindy’s Chili & Gertie’s Ice Cream. This Groupon is valid at the Bridgeview and 3685 South Archer Avenue locations.
A confluence of two Chicago institutions, Lindy’s Chili & Gertie’s Ice Cream flaunts a menu that's rich with American favorites. To fuel up before a night on the town, rendezvous with the chili tamales extravaganza ($5.99), whose two tamales tango with stew and shredded cheese under the supervision of fresh nacho chips. Dream Meal burgers ($6.99) and cheeseburgers ($7.99) arrive well-broiled and flanked by fries, a beverage, and a cup of beef or turkey chili, and sandwiches and salads round out the menu to aid its impressions of hamster balls. For dessert, Gertie’s staffers construct titanic sweets such as the Battleship, which blends three scoops of vanilla ice cream with an army of fresh strawberries, bananas, and Nabisco cookies ($5.49). While enjoying fare finales, patrons can revel in old-timey vibes, fed by neon signs, bright awnings, and cash registers with gears greased with pomade.
