Anyone recommend somewhere decent for a proper feed?
Ditka's! Apart from it being the legendary coach's place, the food was really good

if you like Pizza

http://giordanos.com/the-menu/

or featured in Man vs Food and it looked to die for what he tried

http://www.ginoseast.com/

or

http://www.loumalnatis.com/

Chicago is famous for pizza and all are highly recommended. I remember at the Hawks game I attended someone said you must try Giordanos and I did and it was excellent. But looking online they are all highly recommended.

The other choice is one I visit in other US States its that good and its Uno's

http://www.unos.com/menus/

The Broccoli & Cheddar Soup is other worldly it is so good. I have been brought up by a Mum who is a fantastic cook and a Gran who is also a fine cook so I feel I know my food and that Soup is amazing

If you prefer the Clam Chowder there is also brilliant

Main Course

I would create your own Deep Dish Pizza. They are simply gorgeous. But if Pizza isn't your thing there Burgers are also fantastic

If I was going back soon I would try Ditka's it looked dodgy as anything on my Dad's 1985 Bears video (part of it shows the restaurant and the food didn't look good), but I know that it was a new restaurant then and the reviews of Trip Advisor would suggest its worth a visit

I'd like to give a man vs food place a go at one point, and that certainly looks like a contender!

I wrote a post about my trip in 2012 ( http://disneykymie.wordpress.com/201...-chicago-2012/ ) , have a picture of The Fridge burger and Banana Cream Pie there somewhere, have had pizza at Giordano's and Lou Malnatis, both were awesome. Have also heard Uno's is good but I have yet to try it.

Made me hungry just thinking about the great food I have eaten, my mind has wondered from a tailgate served by a hot Packers fan in Denver where we had Buffalo Burgers
to Chicago to the food I mentioned above and
then to the great fish places in Boston
and finally to a Wisconsin Cheddar Omelette in the Radisson in Green Bay

We're doing Chicago for the first time, and New York and Boston again, but we generally ate in convenient places last time we were over, rather than going a bit further afield.

Want to shake it up a bit this time.
