Best food tour in Chicago! My boyfriend got me the custom tour with Chef Greg for my birthday and it was the best present ever! Greg is so friendly and knows so much about Chicago history and the specific places he took us to were amazing. We had an extremely great 4.5 hour tour filled with tacos x2, fried shrimp, steak sandwich, and the original polish sausage. Needless to say we were happy and full! I would recommend this your to anyone!
This is hands down the best food tour in Chicago! We stopped at several restaurants that were actually handpicked by some of the top chefs in Chicago.. Definitely the best food I've had! Most of these eateries are not your typical over hyped places that you always hear about in the media. Our tour guide Chef Greg also drove to many landmarks in the neighborhoods and pointed out a lot of interesting facts about the history, culture and architecture out there. You will not be disappointed!!!
