Hi My Fellow Hounds:
This is my first-ever Chowhound post, so if I've repeated, I apologize. My Boyfriend and I will be visiting Chicago in April for a week and we are looking for some great Chicago eats. Specifically, I am looking at Gino's East for Deep Dish, Chicago Home of Chicken and Waffles, Geja's Cafe for Fondue, Giordano's for pizza, Hot Doug's, Big Jones for their Boarding House Lunch, and Al's Beef. I am originally from NY, so I am nervous about Chicago Deep Dish, as I was raised on thin crust. Are there any other great spots I'm missing? Staying in Schaumburg at Staybridge Suites, so I am aware of the distance, though we will be sight-seeing in the city each day. looking forward to some great recomendations. Thanks everyone!!!!
