I was referring to ghetto Uptown around Truman College. Y'know young black males with their hands on squad cars, people jumping in front of trains and shootings at the Wilson L stop. Good times.
I've been to the Garcia's in Lincoln Square (Western/Lawrence) once. S'okay. My all-time favorite Mexican joint from my high school days was Taco Burrito Palace #2 in Lincoln Park but they've since moved down the street (Lincoln) a bit and it don't feel like home no more. The cheap-eats place I've been meaning to hit for the last x years but always find an excuse not to is Hot Doug's in... Lakeview (3300 N block of California)?
Hot Doug's Rules. End of story. They do have crazy hours because Doug goes on vacation on a whim, and there usually is a wait, but it's worth it. I would wait for the autumn when the whether isn't so conducive to standing outside for 20 minutes. I've had the game sausage of the week (i think it was venison) and some sort of french sausage with creamy cheese and dijon mustard. You'll defintely feel like a fat ass but you've gotta treat yourself every now and then.
Also, El Famous Burrito in Rogers Park kicks ass. Great chicken enchiladas.
