With thousands of restaurants in Chicago, the Windy City easily earns its reputation for being a great restaurant town. The city’s professional types and lawyers flood eating establishments for business lunches in the Loop during the day, while high-class couples and first daters take to fine-dining bistros and brasseries all over the city at night.

Chicago may be most well-known though for its out-of-this-world deep dish pizza, Chicago style hot dogs, and burger joints that populate the skyscrapers and corner buildings all over town. And whenever the Cubs are playing, every sports bar in town is packed, serving up greasy bar food for sports fans of every ilk.

Whether people are looking for great café brunches, power lunches, swanky dinners, late night nibbles, or everything in between, there are enough Chicago restaurants to provide for any taste or style.
