Decent pub grub on Lakeview's Southport strip.
This 20-strong northern Indiana burger chain (with a few Illinois outlets) is probably the best-known champion of the smashed, Indiana-style burger, duplicated to much better effect at Evanston's Edzo's, but not necessarily so at more classic indie joints like Johnsen's Blue Top Drive-In and Miner-Dunn. The Mickey, with two slices of American cheese, mustard, ketchup, relish, and onions, sets the sloppy standard. It's a style I'm not particularly fond of but I do see its merits, particularly in the lacy corona of meat that crisps around the edge of the discus-size patty. —Mike Sula

The folks behind Brownstone, Schoolyard, and Gaslight bar and grills offer more-upscale fare in this Loop location, with a menu that spans from "Reuben rolls" (corned beef, Swiss, and sauerkraut in wonton wrappers) to burgers, steaks, and chops to a half-pound skillet-fried chocolate chip cookie topped with ice cream, chocolate, and caramel.
