    Need help!!! Operation Chicago

    Heading out in the morning to Chicago, and was wondering if anyone could recommend a awesome, family friendly resteraunt. Looking for good quality food, with maybe a small kids menu also. Thanks in advance

    The publican has great food/drink list in a casual adult atmosphere that's also kids friendly.

    Hi,

    Its a bit corny and i think its a chain but the Cheescake factory at the bottom of the Hancock building is great, another option is to walk out to Navy Peir they have several places out there that are very family friendly.

    I know your in Michigan which is a pizza dessert, why not treat the family to real pizza !!! loads of great ones in Chicago

    Dont forget to get your Garretts popcorn for the drive home, best popcorn in the world especially the caramel !!!!

    Another one that might satisfy the gourmet but also be kid friendly especially during the day is teh purple pig just off Michigan ave

    If your in the mood for Barbeque, try Q its exepnsive but fantastic, place called Smoque but thats a bit north.

    For Mexican, Frontera grill is great and kid friendly during the day, they also have XOCO which is a takeaway

    If you get chance for a grown ups meal, i would strongly recommend Girl and the Goat, it exceeds all expectations and is very reasonable for what you get

    I'll take the heat for this but if you have little kids (under 6?) I'd go to Portillos. You can't get much kid friendlier than that. Save the good stuff for when you can stop and stay awhile at dinner.

    I'm also a huge fan of Giordano's when surrounded by kids. Just be sure to call ahead to order of you want a deep dish. Not fair to kids to male them sit around waiting for 45 minutes to an hour in a restaurant.

    Portillos is fine but at the end of the day its a fast food place, nothing unique

    Plus if you want Italian Beef their are better places, particularly Al's beef

    If you like great thin crust then stop at Aurileos in Homewood on the way home, its a few miles from I 80

    If you go there ask them for the original oven

    If you want great beer while in Homewood ask for directions to Flossmoor station brewery, take a couple of growlers home
