What you'll do

We start with a very popular Chicago dish: the Chicago-style hot dog - which is taken very seriously by locals. Every Chicagoan has their own preference as to how the dog should be made, and you’ll get a chance to try my favorite version. Next up is the world-famous Chicago deep-dish pizza - an entire meal unto itself. I'll take you to a pizza place that’s an icon to Chicago natives to try the real deal for yourself.

After you’ve filled up on pizza and hot dogs, we’ll stroll through two classic Chicago establishments. One is a uniquely Midwest phenomenon that is a sight to behold. The other stop is a restaurant born in Chicago and recognized by nearly everyone on earth - but this one is something special. We’ll then continue our tasting journey with a classic Chicago sandwich: Italian beef. You’ll sample this sandwich in a real city institution — no-frills decor included!

Finally, it’s time for something sweet inside a truly local hangout. Here, you’ll enjoy a dessert, relax, and purchase a beverage of your choice.

Wallach was a great guide! Very thorough in his explanations of the areas that we were walking through as we went to each delicious place. This tour is worth doing for both first-time and repeat Chicago visitors.

It was a nice experience. The location proved to be difficult to find but the host was nice enough to wait for us. The food was great but we wished we would have received bigger portions. We had to go back to the hot dog place to buy our own after the tour.
