Bad Dog Tavern
I stopped in to Bad Dog Tavern for a bite before a concert I was attending accross the street. I had just arrived from the Detroit area and was hungy!I found the place a little dark on inside from the middle of the bar back but was greeted by a friendly hostess and seated by the open windows at front of the bar. Could see much better there. The menue looked yummy and the drinks sounded great. My waitress came to take my drink and food orders and was very pleasant as well and was happy to help me select a drink.The food didn't take too long to arrive. Looked great tasted great!I ordered the Pesto Chicken Sandwich which had cheese and roasted red peppers on it as well. There was some of the seed/membrane on one of the pepper strips and could've used a bit more of the pesto but overall the sandwich was tasty. Tender chicken, plenty of cheese, fresh bread. The sandwich was served with yummy lightly seasoned fries that also had bits of (what I'm guessing was) parmisan cheese and a crisp dill pickle spear. My drink was delicious as well (got some kind of tropical mix - sorry I can't remmeber the name of it). Bad Dog Tavern is in a neat part of town so it was also fun to watch the people that were walking around the neighborhood. A nice mix of folks. Good, friendly service. Fresh, yummy food. Good seating. Very reasonably priced for Chicago!

Revival Social Club
My dining partner and I have enjoyed years of great food and drink in Chicago and Los Angeles, and our overall impression of Revival was simply this: "we had to find a bad one sooner or later!"- there were other seats, but they seated us directly under a large, unfiltered skylight at 1pm -- lots of squinting!- the room was a cacophony of sound; all right angles and hard surfaces, so everyone was raising their voices to be heard.- we left much of our meal unconsumed: an over-salted bloody mary, an "odd, sort of tex-mex" eggs benedict, chips that tasted heavy and bland, and nutella pancakes that had no flavor beyond the nutella itself.- we were surrounded by waitstaff chatting with each other and friends at tables, and couldn't get a check without resorting to unsubtle methods.In short, you can do better.

Chicago Chop House
Just finished our super delicious meal! Had the tomahawk rib eye with augratin potatoes and organc spinach salad with key lime pie for desert all of which were super delicious. Our waiter, the ex scuba diver , did an outstading job. Table service top notch with clean forks and knives with each course. Table swept clean, and if you leave your table during your meal, you will return to a folded napkin. Hostess kindly explained the local history of the building and neighborhood. I had to look hard to find fault, but being from old school service, I prefer my water and or drink glass to be removed from the table for refilling rather than reach across with a pitcher but that's just me. Enjoyed our first visit here and would definitely recommend.

Sociale Chicago
I happen to be in town and was walking in the neighborhood, so I decided to stop by. The weather in Chicago was unusually warm, and it was a gorgeous day out. Sociale had the windows open and the bar looked so inviting. I was warmly greeted by several staff members as soon as I walked in. Everyone was very friendly. I ordered a cocktail and the Brie with Bacon Jam flatbread. Listen Linda! OMG, it was amazing! I tried not to devour the whole thing, but my tummy wants what it wants. The bacon-onion jam paired perfectly with the brie and cured egg yolk on top. Hmmm...I suddenly need to make a trip to Chicago.

Chicago Ghost Investigations
This was a great experience! I came with 14 girls ranging in age from 14-17 and they had a great time! It was an enlightening experience! We made contact with several spirits. I was a bit skeptical at first but after this... not anymore! I would def go back in the near future. The guides were wonderful. The customer service was outstanding. The owner was knowledgeable and informative! Actually, some of the girls told their family members about it and they can't wait to go! Thanks Chicago Ghost Investigation for my daughter's wonderful 15th birthday and an amazing experience for all of us!

Baocos
I ordered the Cape May baocos and my husband ordered the Roasted Belly baocos, both of which can be ordered in a plate of either 3 or 5. For me 3 was plenty, I took one home, with the banana chips I was quite full. My husband ordered 5 and had no trouble eating them all. We both agreed that our food was delicious and the wait time was very reasonable. The atmosphere is good, and the location convenient. I will definitely be back to try other items on the menu. I would recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

Irie Island
This place is really cool compared to most Jamaican restaurants...the food is hot, the service is great and the price is cheap. What I like most about Irie Island besides the food is the ambiance. Its well built and clean. They serve you buffet style unless you decide to dine In which I do all the time. I got a couple of my friends to come with me their to watch the game and they loved it too more so because we were able to bring our bottles in. "YEA FOR BYOB ON THE SOUTH SIDE".

State and Lake Chicago Tavern
I'm just visiting Chicago this is my first time and I thought they had outstanding customer service. The waiters and waitresses were really nice and the manager let us know when we came for brunch but there's about 15 more minutes before it closed for lunch but as long as we got our order and they would still make us breakfast which I thought was nice the food was really good it had a really great atmosphere definitely recommend checking it out

Citgo
THIS CITGO/DUNKIN DONUTS IS GREAT! I DO GO IN REGULARLY AND BY THE 3RD TIME, THE LADIES AT DD KNEW WHAT DRINK I WANTED & THE CASHIER ON THE GAS SIDE KNEW WHAT CIGARETTES I NEEDED WITHOUT HAVING TO SAY A WORD! THEY ALWAYS HAVE A SMILE FOR YOU AND A BIG HELLO, HOW ARE YOU?! THAT SORT OF CUSTOMER SERVICE YOU JUST DO NOT RECEIVE ANYMORE, IM GLAD THAT EVEN IN THE BIG CITY YOU CAN FIND A BIT OF SMALL TOWN SERVICE!
Tips & Advices
Driver can find the cheapest gas prices by using an app to search for the lowest prices in their area.  Some apps such as Gas Guru take note of your location, and provide a list of gas stations nearby, along with the cost of gas currently being sold at each station.
There are things you can do to slightly improve the fuel efficiency of your vehicle. Make sure your car's tires are properly inflated, and treat your engine to regular tune-ups. Check your engine's air filter, since a dirty air filter will compromise fuel economy.
Drivers must shut their engine off before pumping gas because it's illegal to fuel with the engine running, even though this law isn't always aggressively enforced. Pumping gas with the engine running can compromise your safety. When your car's engine is running, it's possible for its catalytic converters to generate heat that could ignite gasoline, and start a fire.
Even though many gas stations have warnings advising you not to use your cell phone while fueling, the chances of cell phones igniting a gasoline vapor fire are extremely remote. However, fires at the gas pump may be caused by static electricity discharge. For safe fueling, it's recommended that you turn off your car's engine and avoid smoking at the pump. Also, you should never re-enter your vehicle while refueling.
Many factors contribute to the lack of uniformity in gas prices. Retailers consider their tax responsibilities when setting gas prices. States place varying taxes on gasoline retailers, and a state with higher taxes will have higher gas prices than a state in which the taxes are lower. Also, if a gas station is located in an especially competitive area, a branded operator may receive wholesale discounts that allow the station to sell gas at a lower price. This is done by brands to keep their gas competitive in tight markets.
