Unlike a sand witch, a sandwich doesn't have the power to turn men into sand and sand into poisoned glass. Let handheld eats cast a devastating spell on hunger pains with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of authentic Chicago-style eats and drinks at Taste of Chicago, located in the University District.
This lunch, dinner, and late-night snack shack dishes out an impressive menu of handheld hunger tamers, all of which come with a side of fries. Transport taste buds to the streets of the Second City by noshing on a Chicago-style hot dog, dressed for erratic weather in layers of tomatoes, green relish, diced onions, a pickle spear, mustard, sport peppers, and celery salt, and served on a poppy-seed bun ($6). The Chicago Maxwell Street Polish is another Windy City classic, topping beef Polish sausage with grilled onions, sport peppers, and mustard ($6.25). Pizza puffs ($4.50), burgers (starting at $5.75), pork chop sandwiches ($6.50), and jumbo chicken wings ($7 for three) are also available, as are many vegetarian options. Top off your tummy with a cold beer ($2.50–$3.50) or old-fashioned milkshake ($3–$3.50).
Though globe trekking is an effective way to taste different cities' native nosh, if you don't speak the dialect, you might ask for a crêpe and emerge with a perm. Today's Groupon lets you feast on far-flung fare without risking your pride, appearance, or pocketbook. Purchase additional Groupons to lunch with friends, have dinner with a date, or snack with a group of friendly albatrosses. Taste of Chicago stays open late Monday through Thursdays until 1 a.m. and Fridays and Saturdays until 3 a.m. It is closed on Sundays.
- My boyfriend really enjoyed the Chicago dog, I believe his exact words were "I can never have a regular dog again" – Kristin C., Yelp
- Taste of Chicago is great. The only place serving authentic Chicago style fast food in Seattle or in the whole state of Washington. All the food is prepared fresh & they make a real old fashion milkshake. I have tried the Italian beef, wings with mild sauce & windy city steak all were delicious. All order [sic] come with fresh fries & tax included. The prices are dirt cheap & they are open late. I highly recommend this place – Louis S., Urbanspoon
