Re: A Roadfood Day Crawl in Evanston?
I don't post much on here (I'm always on the LTH Forum), but this sounded like a fun day. I live and grew up in Highland Park (via Skokie first) and go to Evanston/Skokie often. I've been in the Detroit suburbs all summer fixing up a rental property so I missed this. Seems like quite a bit to eat over one day (though I once hit 5 beef joints over a couple of hours for lunch so look who's talking), but that was back in my "eating until it hurts" days. I suppose with great restraint it certainly can be done. I have enjoyed this thread and the great photos.
You guys picked some great stops which include some of my favorites like Edzo's and Poochie's. The sweets are nice (Hoosier Mama is great) but they are secondary to me. Evanston Chicken Shack is decent, but I never though it was that good. I suppose another trip is in order. An Evanston guilty pleasure for me is an order of extra crispy chips and gravy at the Celtic Knot.
