Local folks on the Chicago Chowhound message boards come to the aid of someone going by the name "CookieEater," who is looking for some good, inexpensive spots while in town for the holiday weekend.
Recs are pretty much across the board, from ethnic eats like Habana Libre for Cuban and Hopleaf for Belgian to coffee hangouts such as Sip and Caffe De Luca.
It gets pretty heated . . . especially when they start discussing pizza.
