Some Like It Hot!

As in 5 star spicy hot grilled shiracha wings at The Bench Chicago (Chef D.Cain's changed the name). I had never heard of Benchwarmer's/The Bench until my friend decided on buying one of their restaurant.com coupons. Even better, it's super conveniently located just off of the North Avenue exit for the Kennedy! It's spacious, has friendly staff, and some great tunes playing!

Let's get the the good stuff! Chef Owner / D.Cains's Shiracha 5 star wings are some of the very best I've ever tasted...Outstanding!!!! My friends and I will most certainly be back for the well-above average bar food...and especially to try all of their unique wing flavors.

The hand cut fries with special seasoning, the italian sausage with peppers, the tuna steak sandwich, the stuffed mushrooms, and the homemade chips were a few steps up from your usual, same old bar food. Oh right, let's not forget the crazy good desert, Banana's Foster served in a pastry like egg roll!
