<$20 seafood/steak/burgers/italian/american in Evanston?

2iron12 | Mar 23, 2014 08:46 PM

I was admitted into a ph.d. program at Northwestern and am going to Evanston for the official visit day in a couple of weeks. My dad is coming out to Chicago to spend a couple of days with me, too.

I'm looking for places that are casual, moderately priced (entrees <$20), not too adventurous or "ethnic" (my dad's a picky eater), and preferably someplace where lower-sodium options are available. The best options are seafood or steak (if reasonably priced), Italian, burgers, and brewpub/new American-type places.

My dad would be just as happy at a chain, but I'm seriously considering spending the next five years of my life as a student out there, so I'd prefer to get a feel for the town. So, closer to Northwestern is better, but if there's something good elsewhere in north Chicagoland, that's fair game.
