Your Itinerary

River North

Your Chicago food tour will take you through the River North neighborhood — the original Chicago foodie destination — to sample some world-famous Chicago dishes, local favorites, and a sweet treat. It’s an afternoon that will leave you full of delicious food and memories for a lifetime! We start with a very well-known Chicago dish: the Chicago-style hot dog. Perfect for summers at a baseball game (cheering on the Cubs or Sox of course), or for a quick lunch on a work day, this local take on a hot dog is a debate-worthy food in Chicago and is taken very seriously by locals. Every Chicagoan has his or her own preference as to how the dog should be made, and you’ll get a chance to try your guide's favorite version.

River North

Next up is the world-famous Chicago deep-dish pizza! An entire meal unto itself, this staple of the Chicago food scene originated in River North in the 1940s when workers and families needed filling dishes at low prices. Your guide will take you to a pizza place that’s an icon to Chicago natives to try the real deal for yourself.

River North

After you’ve filled up on pizza and hot dogs, we’ll then continue our tasting journey with a classic Chicago sandwich: Italian beef. This hearty meal came about during the Depression, and it’s here to stay. You’ll sample this sandwich in a real city institution — no-frills decor included! We’ll conclude your Chicago foodie experience here, with easy access to the ‘L’. Even if you say you’ll never be hungry again, don’t forget to note some great dinner recommendations from your guide. You won’t regret it!

We had an amazing tour with Dash! It was raining on and off and he was able to think of a new route quickly to keep us dry but still had the most delicious three stops. He was very knowledgeable and shared so many interesting new and old facts about Chicago. My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time and left the tour full and happy! 10/10 recommend for anyone who lives in town or visiting!


This food tour was great. Dash was informative, entertaining, and very knowledgeable of Chicago of course. What made it a 5-star experience was his ability to adapt his stories and his examples to our tour. He was able to add so much depth to the Chicago history by relating examples to our tour and in response to our questions. I’m a curious person and I love these tours ok many cities, and this was my favorite one, ever. If I could give Dash 6-stars I would. He even kept both my teenage kids engaged and even trying new foods. Great tour indeed!


Dash was awesome. Full of knowledge and took us to great spots for good eats. Really happy with the whole tour. Would highly recommend.


I've done food tours all over the world but this is the first one that only offered 3 items to eat. The only reason I give it 4 stars and not less is because Rich the guide made it a great experience.


Dash is an excellent story teller and guide! We enjoyed every minute of our tour along with the great food. Highly recommend this tour and Dash! We are ready to go back and go on another tour!


The tour was amazing! Dash was so informative, friendly, and overall an AMAZING tour guide! Would totally recommend for anyone looking to get a different look at Chicago and it’s food and culture!!!
