Trying Garret's popcorn is a must when visiting Chicago... Actually you can now get these wonderful popcorn in many places (Tokio, Singapur, Atlanta to name a few)... Try Garrets combination!...

I've had this popcorn before, it's VERY tasty, a bit pricey but very tasty....the biggest problem with this location is that IT'S GONE!!!!! If you try to call the number it forwards you to a corporate number and you get a recording so you can't even call to make sure they are still at this location....I needed the extra walk.

I love getting a bag of this popcorn when we're in Chicago. I've even gone out of the way to grab a bag, but typically we find ourselves getting some at the 26 W Randolph location (next to the Oriental Theatre)...for whatever reason. I usually just get a bag of the caramel, but my wife likes the cheese popcorn as... More

We never miss a chance to pick up some of this popcorn, whether in Chicago or passing through O'Hare, which is what we had to do today. We had everyone's orders and they will be asking for it as soon as we land at home. Our favorite is the cheese and caramel mix and the caramel pecan. It's delicious and... More

I have had Garrett Popcorn many times and it never disappoints. My favorite is the caramel corn, but I always buy cheese corn for my boyfriend. When I was at this location last week, we noticed a sign that this particular location was closing. It was very convenient because we were staying at the hotel next door, but there are... More

Saw so many people walking around with the famous carrier bag of popcorn. When we went past the shop we simply had to stop and get some. I went for the mixed small bag. It was amazing! You get sooooooo much. Worth every cent! Highly recommend

Two words -- Chicago Mix. Locally, this is an actual food group. Every location offers the same excellent product. Don't be put off by a long line -- the staff keeps the lines moving quickly.

We were bribed by family members from back home to make sure we stopped at Garrett's and brought them a souvenier back. The lines were long and wrapped around the outside of the building but they went fast. This definitely is the best popcorn around and is well worth the wait and the money.

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
