We all wish we knew what kinds of food a place serves and if it’s really worth going there. And Chicago has some amazing restaurants with one of a kind meals that are definitely worth sharing. These five Chicago food bloggers go above and beyond to share their favorite dishes, places to eat, as well as what Chicago foodies should avoid.
