"Taste of Chicago" Festivals Tip by apbeaches

Festivals, Chicago: 29 reviews and 45 photos


Dinners looked very crowded so we enjoyed a Wednesday lunch. We didn't wait in line for tickets, nor at any of the 50 food vendors. There was something for all four of us to eat. It wasn't cheap; we went through coupons quickly, 12 coupons for $8.00. We could purchase a small taste of the food each restaurant had to offer or a more expensive & larger choices. We enjoyed ribs, cheesecake, burgers. ..

People watching was fun. Picnic tables were clean. The Brawny tent made a hit. They had two sinks with soap and towels to clean up after dining.

Address: Grant Park

      We do too! Most of the restaurants in Chicago brought out their best dishes for minimal prices. There were lot's of tables & even trailers with soap, water & paper towels.
