Burger Restaurant
“This is by far my top recommendation to anyone visiting, and even if you live here it's a top spot. Know for having one of the best burgers in the country, you will have to get your name in early to the wait list as there are no reservations here. The reward is very much worth the wait! Plus, waiting means you have more time to explore West Loop!”

Diner
“Classic American diner fair but elevated and made very unique! This place doesn't take reservations so if you're trying to find a good spot without a crazy wait in Fulton Market, your best bet is to stop in here and put your name in. Then if the wait is long you can walk around and if you happen to find another restaurant you'd rather try out without a wait, then go for it! But at the very least you've got a really good restaurant to try our in your back pocket. ”

Coffee Shop
“Best. Coffee. Ever. If you like lattes - don't miss the draft latte. You can ask for little or no ice to have it extra creamy and you can add agave to your heart's desire. The baked goods are from Floriole - ask for a heated ham and cheese croissant and try your best not to ask for seconds. ”
