Everybody has to eat, and more often than not, we like to eat out. Most of us aren't foodies or culinary experts, We just like good food at a decent price.
This blog is all about eating out in Chicago, generally not at the trendy places, the hoi polloi fancy spots or the big chains.
I'm definitely not a foodie, just a hard working guy that likes good food and I'm going to share my dining experiences with you. Hopefully it will give you the food layperson's view on Chicago spots. To keep your food bills in check.
I will also Include some “food news” about places located in my “hood” up on the Far North Side of Chicago and Evanston.
I do travel a lot as well, so I will also include a little page with some food notes from my travels!

Alexander's Steakhouse - Springfield IL
Seriously, for about $30, I needed to be wheeled out in a wheelbarrow! I was in meat heaven!
The steak was perfectly cooked, the broccoli was crisp and the mushrooms rocked! My buddy added Cheesecake to his dinner and said it was a good addition!
Fast service, all you can eat salad bar is included and the service was spot on. We didn't have any drinks, but the drink menu looked reasonable. If you are in Springfield, I highly recommend Alexander's! Good meal, good FOOD BILL at the end! Oh, and did I mention that you can cook your own steak if you want??? You can! I was too lazy though!
