Great place with plenty of shopping, restaurants, grocery stores and desserts. Great place to experience some Indian culture. I loved the grocery stores, goo prices, friendly people. It would be nice to clean and beautify the store fronts, parking is tough. All of Devon is a section by section of different cultures. Very nice to enjoy.

This part of Chicago caters to shoppers and foodies who desire, Indian groceries, clothing, jewelry and restaurants. My in-laws love to visit as it reminds them of Gujrat. If you haven't visited in about a decade many of the restaurants have renovated and look very modern in decor. Be prepared to haggle at clothing and jewelry shops.

We wanted to do/see something a little different and being from an Indian background it was interesting to walk along Devon Avenue. It is mainly just a wide range of restaurants, Indian grocery stores and clothes stores but was a nice way to spend some time just walking up and down. Went to Annapurna vegetarian restaurant to get a bite... More

While it is a bit of a journey from the downtown area, there are reasons to make the trip. You can find the best Indian and Pakistani food here in the whole city. You can kind some dishes here that I haven't been able to find anywhere else in town including South Indian Dosais. There are some interesting ethnic grocery... More

If the weather is nice, this is a great place to spend the better part of the day. It has changed a great deal over the past 20 years that I have visited Devon Ave. (many of the find Indian business have moved out and been replaces by non-Indian stores). There very well may be more Pakistan or middle-Eastern businesses... More

It was as if I went to India just to eat. The price is very reasonable for great food. My other Indian friend made it... More

I drive up and down Devon Avenue up to five times a week. I've been travelling that route for years. Yet I still find the area fascinating and exotic. I've eaten at restaurants up and down the street, so I'm very familiar with the authentic Indian flavors and fine cuisines. But Devon is about more than great food. It's about... More
