Northside Bar & Grill – This Bucktown favorite makes some mean margaritas and great bar eats like turkey burgers and burritos. The restaurant’s outdoor patio is the place to sit and eat, or just sip on cocktails and beer. 1635 N Damen

Gene & Georgetti’s – Meat lovers will appreciate this place where you can get some of the best steaks (and martinis) in Chicago. 500 N. Franklin St.

Sushi Cafe – Great sushi for even greater prices (think cheap), and BYOB, so the tab at the end of the night won’t leave your broke. Be sure to try the Honey Bee roll. 1342 N Wells St.

Piece Brewery & Pizza – What’s better than pizza and beer? This place is laidback but has some addictive thin-crust pizzas, and, of course, beer – hand-crafted on-site so come thirsty. 1927 W. North Ave.

Think Cafe – Popular Uptown BYOB that dishes out home-cooked food from chicken and meat dishes, to fish and more. 2235 Western Ave.

Reza’s – If Middle Eastern food, such as hummus and chicken kabobs, wets your appetite, then come to Reza’s hungry and leave satisfied. 5255 N. Clark St.
