The steamed vegetable dumplings and sizzling chicken were delicious! The ingredients seem very fresh and made to order (so not fast but worth the wait). If sensitive to hot spice pay attention to what you order. These dishes were flavorful but not hot. We also ordered a spicy lamb dish that was a bit hot but not extremely so. We sat outside on a nice night. Our server was great. More

Discover Evanston

In suburban Evanston, you'll find one of Chicagoland's most noteworthy dishes: stuffed pizza. A deep-dish pan is filled with layers upon layers of toppings, sauce and cheese and is covered with an extra stretch of dough before baking. The price on stuffed pizza can be cause for a bit of sticker shock when compared to everyday pizza pies, but as a college town, Evanston has plenty of options more suitable for those on a budget. Two other Windy City favorites, Italian beef sandwiches and all-beef hot dogs on poppy seed buns, are noteworthy examples. Those looking for a more refined dining experience will find that the menus of table-service restaurants feature Midwestern comfort dishes built around meat, cheese and an assortment of farm-fresh vegetables.
