This avenue is filled with people of all religion and culture. It is a nice place to see different cultures mingling. Food is amazing and shopping for Indian/Pakistani good is great. Don't forget to bargain!

For a quick trip to India, visit Devon Avenue. Ethnic Restaurants are everywhere, stores are teeming with saris, fabrics, and native jewelry,ethnic groceries, people wear their native clothes, shops stay open late, and it is a unique experience just being there. HINT: Be prepared, parking is at a premium as most of the surrounding blocks have resident parking stickers.

Try to visit the Indo-Pakistani section of Devon Avenue if you're in the mood for an ethnic experience. Vegetarian snacks, Pakistani kebabs, clothing and jewelry stores...worth spending two to three hours if you've done all the touristy things and are looking to do something different in Chicago.

Whenever I encounter tourists in Chicago lining up for "The Rainforest Cafe" or "Pizzaria Uno" (both are chains you know), I want to step in and urge them to the north side. The West Rogers Park neighborhood is the cultural tossed salad. Devon Avenue is like Chicago's Brick Road. There are so many wonderful Indian and Pakistani restaurants, snack shops,... More

This 3 or 4 block street is the majority of all of the Indian restaurants, shops and travel all in one place. I have been to 5 restaurants and a couple of the stores and they have anything you are looking for from India. The only real drawback is that there is very limited parking, and the street parking is... More

My family and I spent several hours on Devon Ave over the course of three days. The girls had their eyebrows threaded and henna on their hands at a local salon. I visited Fresh Farms grocery and wandered around in amazement at all the choices. They make juices out of pretty much whatever fruits and vegetables they have available. I... More
