Chicago geography - a general inquiry

GDPhalp | Jun 25, 2012 02:38 PM

I am coming to Chicago in August - flying into O'Hare, staying by O'Hare, with no car. I will have my wife & 4 year old with me. Im in town for a short meeting, but will be staying 3 nights - Thurs-Sunday. Here's my question - from someone who is not familiar with Chicago, or its geography/public transportation - what can I do for food?
In a perfect world, there would be options close for:
Italian Beef/Sausage
Pizza (Cracker crust & Deep Dish)
Hot Dogs
Other regional specialties

I see that you have wonderful public transportation with cabs/El, but I come from Kansas City, where we have no PT options - with family in tow, I'd need detailed directions as to where to get off & where to walk from there. Are there any great options that are easily accessible off the blue line, or near the airport, or am I generally out of luck?

Thanks for your help.
