Kosher butcher in Chicago?

I'm new to this board. Is there a kosher butcher in the city? I tried a search and didn't have any success. Many thanks in advance.

    The Jewel at Howard & Kedzie ... in Evanston ... has a thriving Kosher butcher shop and fish store.

      I would think there would be some more on Devon Ave. Or you could ask at some of the other Kosher places(bakery, etc) on Devon, to find out where they recommend. I think Devon Ave. used to be all/mostly Jewish places - it was one of the old Jewish neighborhoods. Now it is very diverse and there are only a few. I have a friend from Pakistan who buys his "halal" meat on Devon.

        The Roumanian Kosher shop on Clark and Touhy has the greatest garlic hot dogs in creation.

          I don’t often buy kosher meat, though when I do I use Main St Kosher in Skokie. Excellent poultry, especially the capons, and the kishka is quite delicious, almost like my grandmothers, and she is a great cook.
