We signed up as first time food tour foodies looking for a good time. AnnaLynne did a great job, as she guided us around to several of Chicago's notable establishments. Started with Pizano's pizza (...awesome deep dish!), and kept going from there - brownies, Chicago dog, "cheezeborger" and finished at Fannie May candies. Lots of interesting information along the way.... More

We started off in a Pizzeria, trying deep dish pizza, then headed for some brownies, sandwiches, cupcakes,... More

Great tour, great food, great guide, think his name was Johnson, super friendly, knew the area like the back of his hand and gave great advice on where to go in the city for a first time visitor. Coming back... More
