I'm planning on a long weekend trip to Chicago in August. I'm trying to get as much food in as possible. I definitely want to at least have deep dish/stuffed pizza, Chicago hot dogs, steak, and barbecue. I'm not very keen on tourist traps. I'd rather go somewhere for the best food for the right price. If it's expensive but the best meal you've ever had, tell me about it! If it's a cheap dive but also the best meal you've ever had, let me know! I'll be staying downtown near the magnificent mile but I'm open to all suggestions. We will travel for good food.
Thank you in advance to everyone for their help.
