"Dive Bars" + Good Late-Night Eating?

Kenny from Rogers Park | Jun 23, 2003 12:22 PM

Some friends are visiting from the east coast over the July 4th weekend. They've told me that they seek a particularly rich Chicago working class "dive bar" experience. They are strongly interested in Polish immigrant bars, but any interesting or distinctive ( in terms of "feel", "authenticity", patrons, decor, music,unusual features, etc) dive bars will do. Because they are chowhounds, they'd also like to combine the dive bar experience with good late-night eating, preferably near the bars we'll be drinking at. Can anyone suggest a good dive bar and chow combination? Any leads you can give will be greatly appreciated....
