NYer on first trip to Chicago on a budget

Matteaucubed | Jul 31, 2011 10:08 PM

Will be staying at the Westin River North Aug 15-18.

I am looking to try the famous Chicago deep dish pizza & a good Chicago dog, among other things. Willing to travel a bit as long as spots are near an L station.

Also really interested in finding some excellent soul food (Fried chicken, rib tips, oxtail, etc).

Any other recs for a first timer that you locals would consider a must try would be welcome.

Not looking for anything touristy!!!

Recs for a good bar near my hotel with live music would also be much appreciated.
