CLASSIC FRY PERFECTION
For that crispy comfort food fix, Superdawg (333 S. Milwaukee Ave., Wheeling) is the ultimate old-school drive-in experience. Their side for the legendary hot dogs (and more) is literally trademarked as Superfries™! Fred’s Garage (574 Green Bay Rd., Winnetka) fries also hit the perfectly crispy and nicely salted mark. Get some alongside their Whiskey Barrel Smoked Brisket or their popular Rib Night. The large PERi Chips at Nando's PERI PERI (Old Orchard Rd. & Skokie Blvd., Skokie) at Westfield Old Orchard get a boost with the signature PERi-salt and side of slightly spicy creamy “PERi-naise.” American bistro Valor (667 Vernon St., Glencoe) elevates the classic Steak Frites: their NY Strip with Cognac Sauce au Poivre and shallots is complimented with fresh hand-cut frites and Bacon Truffle Aioli.
