ZACATACOS is one of the best fast food places in the Loop that I have ever been to. Too bad that it's location sucks! This taco heaven deserves to be on Michigan Ave., across the street from Millineum Park. The food is outstanding, from it's Tacos, to their Chiles Rellenos(stuffed poblano pepper) awesome!!! This place has the best Tacos de Papa, originally made, just like in Mexico. No other Taco joint or Mexican restaurant that I know ,carries these delicious tacos. And what can I say about their hot salsa's, excellent! from Pico de Gallo, to chile verde, chile rojo,and last but not least their Guacamole dip, delicious!. After a day of hanging out shopping downtown Chicago, it's the perfect pit stop. I know I'm going their this weekend!!
Chicken Works & Salad Co is just about the healthiest, affordable and tastiest restaurant I have ever did take out from or eat-in at a chicken restaurant. Amazing chicken pita, half chicken, and good sides. Healthy eating on the north side of Chicago! These guys do it. I stop in for lunch and Chicken works is the healthiest option on Irving Park and Elston Avenue where my office is. I use them for catering when I have photo shoots and everybody is happy with the vegetarian wraps or salad bar. Most of the people I work with are vegetarian and so having a healthy restaurant in the neighborhood of Irving, Pulaski and Elston is great. Great friendly staff & owners.
My family has gone to Papa Milanos for years, No one has the sauce like his.. The Veal was out of this world, very Tender perfect texture. One of my favorites is the Egg Plant Parm, wonderful and what a helping, you'll have a carry out bag with you for sure. I don't know how the bread is baked, perfect garlic bread- soft inside slightly crunchy outside an hot hot hot, Try Papa Milano Bring & a date. You'll be happy! Michael Anothony Bonello was here!! Now Thats Italian
