Going to Chicago, what are my cheap eats

Chaptastick | Feb 28, 2010 09:43 AM

So my roommate and I just made a drunken impetuous decision to head to Chicago for the week. No plans, no place to stay, and worst, no must-eat at restaurants.

Chicagans, help a brother out (and please list actual restaurants, not "Hey, you should try our ethnic places" because I'll be all like "Cool, I will. But which establishment should I attend. Because I might attend a terrible place and then hate you all for an inability to actually recommend a good restaurant). Also, I'm an LA transplant living in Ann Arbor, I will kill someone to have good Mexican/Latin/South American food. Please tell me this exists (even better if said restaurant has taco tuesdays)

Also, the cheaper the better. I am gonna see if I can get a table at Alinea on such short notice because I'm not satisfied with my credit card company only calling 10 times a day, but other than that we are two poor college kids, we ain't eating lunches that cost $20 a person.
