Billy Goat Tavern
The original Billy Goat Tavern is an institution. So much so that there’s an outpost at Navy Pier and one in Concourse A at Midway. All sorts of Chicago classics are on the menu—everything from Polish sausages and Italian beefs to pepper and egg breakfast sandwiches. But at Billy Goat, it’s all about the burgers. Order the double or the triple burger because the bun’s too thick for a single, thin, (occasionally overcooked) patty. Add a beer or milkshake, and try to accept the fact that you’re leaving such a food history-rich city behind.
