You can’t be in Chicago and not eat at this 129-year-old institution at least once. And even though Daley’s moved directly across the street to a much bigger space in 2019, the friendly faces, welcoming atmosphere, and great food are the same. Chicago’s oldest restaurant continues to serve the community with great diner-style dishes, as well as soul food classics - like their fried catfish meal. Coated and seasoned with a cornmeal mix, the catfish filets come with your choice of soup or salad, one side, and either two sweet corn muffins or two slices of garlic Texas toast.
