Chicago Visit with 12 Teenagers
Staying at Hyatt Recgency at 151 East Wacker Drive. Visiting Chicago for a student competition and am looking for reasonably priced restaurants that offer a variety for teenagers. Of course top on the list is Chicago deep dish pizza and also steak house. Also need restaurants that can accommodate a group of 14. Walkable or close to public transportation. Will be there for 4 days.
If the budget allows, take them to Fogo de Chao. But go for lunch, not dinner, as the cost is about half at lunch and the kids would get a kick out of all-you-can-eat-meat, not to mention the killer salad bar. There is something about having waiters hover over you urging you to have just a little more, again, again, again. Meat is brought to tables on swords, from the grill, and they carve directly onto your plate, ad infinitum.
Also, kids of all ages love the big McDonalds at Clark and Ohio. And Al's Italian Beef is a tradition, very filling.
Portillo's, 100 W. Ontario, for hot dogs, burgers, etc.
Pizano's for pizza, 61 E. Madison
Very close to the Hyatt is Mariano's Fresh Market, which has a great deli. 333 E. Benton
At the same location is III Forks steakhouse, which is solid.
