Chicago Soul Food Restaurants

The Windy City Offers More Than Just Chicago Style Hotdogs

Soul Food Restaurants in Chicago are known for barbeque and down home southern cooking.

Nowadays, when most people think of "Chi-town" they think of great tasting food festivals, Blues and Jazz music and one of America's fattest city.

Yes its true "Windy City" was voted one of the fattest cities in the United States the past two years. But don't let this fact discourage you from eating soul food.

The cities fatness has more to do with too much television and not enough fitness and less to do with dining out.

Due to the large African American population, "Chi-town" is home to several well established soul food restaurants. You know this means the food is good since these restaurants have survived trends and weathered both good and poor economic times.
