HELLO LOVES

Welcome to my very first FOOD post! I am very excited to be sharing with you guys my favorite places to eat in Chicago, the most photogenic restaurants, and the cutest coffee shops to go! I will be documenting these places and writing reviews as I start this Food + Drink tab of my blog. My very first post is dedicated and got to experience with one of my very best friends, Christian Blakley! For those of you who don’t know us very well, some might call us potato enthusiasts. Yes you read that CORRECTLY. This is the beginning of our 2018 FRY TOUR in Chicago. The best fries you will experience. We will be hitting 5 restaurants/fast food places, every time we go on this “fry tour.” At the end of the day, we will rank these places from best to worst french fries. ENJOY!

EPIC BURGER

Location: 517 S State St, Chicago, IL 60605
Our very first stop on the fry tour! This place had the crispy and crunchy fries with just enough salt.

HAMPTON SOCIAL

Location: 353 W Hubbard St, Chicago, IL 60654
The cutest place to grab drinks with your favorite gal pal and catch up! These fries were smaller but served with some garlic and delicious sauces that were served on the side.

SHAKE SHACK

Location: 66 E Ohio St, Chicago, IL 60611
Shake Shack was first originated in New York. Great crinkle cut fries for a fast food chain!

DEVIL DAWGS

Location: 2147 N Sheffield Ave, Chicago, IL 60614
Ah yes, the infamous Devil Dawgs. We actually have one of these on Columbia’s campus on South State Street. Open until 3 AM on the weekends, Christian and I would definitely say that this is THE BEST drunk food to fulfill those late night cravings. 10/10 would recommend the bucket-o-cheese fries.

DMK BURGER

Location: 2954 N Sheffield Ave, Chicago, IL 60657
For a sit down restaurant, we were a little disappointed that these fries tasted exactly Devil Dawgs.
