Dinner on the way out of town, heading south...

Ok...I've got my eating itinerary pretty much planned out for my entire visit to Chicago (driving from Michigan next week). Only one meal has me stuck! I had an idea that we could do the MSI on our last day and then head home from there since it's on the south side. We have planned to spend the entire day there as it's the most anticipated attraction for my husband and daughter. I have decided that we'll be heading to the Bongo Room for breakfast on the way to the museum and that should keep us fueled for the day. Any ideas on where to find dinner after the museum closes? I haven't really come across any "destination" eats near the MSI...but how about further south heading back to MI? Something in the burbs? It doesn't necessarily have to be "on the way home" we'll have the car and I'm not against the idea of driving out of the way for a good last meal (even if it's heading back north). I guess what I'd like to know is...if any of you were in my shoes for that day, where would you end up for dinner?
