Wrigleyville’s Best Places to Eat

Over the last year, Wrigleyville has invited growth for new local restaurants!  The opening on the new hotel, Hotel Zachary, last year opened the door for several eateries to set up directly across from Wrigley Field.  It’s an exciting place to grab a bite to eat before or after a game or explore off-season!  

Coalfire Pizza – 3707 N Southport Ave

You’ll have to walk a few blocks for this one, but so some of the best pizza in Wrigleyville it’ll be worth it!  The most popular pizzas are Pepperoni & Whipped Ricotta, Lasanga, Pistachio pizzas!  Yum!  All the pizza are cooked in a coal oven to perfection.  Stop in Tuesday-Thursday for happy hour pizza from 4-6pm, only $14 for any pizza (limited to one per table).

Dutch & Docs – 3600 N Clark St

Queen of the Land of the Twigs ‘N Berries highlights Dutch & Docs in her post, Fun Spots for Chicago Foodie Families.  It’s super easy to find with being across from the Wrigley Field marquee!  Sundays are one of the best days to take the kids a Cub’s game and Dutch & Docs’ make it even better with their Spaghetti Sundays and kids eat free every day!  Reservations are suggested.

Lucky Strike Social at Wrigleyville – 1027 W Addison St

The hottest new spot to recently open near Wrigley (just 8 weeks ago!).  They have bowling, games, live music, and most importantly, food.  And it’s family friendly, according to Yelp several family’s say they took their children and had a great time!  Children are welcome before 9 pm.  With menu items like Korean BBQ Beef Tacos, Smokin’ Gouda Mac & Cheese Bites, and Knob Creek Bourbon BBQ Salmon I’ll be sure to check them out soon!

Mordecai – 3632 N Clark St

Wrigleyville’s own whiskey bar and grill located below the Zachary Hotel.  They open three hours before the games and have upstairs patio seating with great views of Wrigley Field!  According to Yelp, the Hangar Steak, Porchetta, Moroccan Spiced Romanesco, Cracker Jack Donut, and Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble are some of the top raved menu items.

Native Foods Cafe – 1023 W Belmont Avenue

A fast, vegan spot in Wrigleyville! Cadry’s Kitchen highlights Native Foods Cafe Day in her “Windy City & Vegan Food Chicago” post. They offer rewards promotions too, so make sure to sign up so that you can claim your first reward – a free cookie!  After checking out their menu, I’m really tempted to go and try out the Oatmeal Cream Pie, Orange Cauliflower, and the Buddha Bowl!

Smoke Daddy – 3636 N Clark St

Looking for some BBQ?  Smoke Daddy is a place I’ve personally visited and not only is the food great, but the views are pretty amazing as well!  You can grab a seat by the window, it faces Wrigley Field and on warm days they’ll have the windows opened up.  Tuesdays are $7 nacho nights, Wednesdays for $6 burgers, Thursdays for $2 sliders, and every Friday they have a family-style brunch

Whisk – 2018 W Chicago Ave

My personal favorite, Whisk is Wrigleyville offers the best burgers and brunch in town.  This may be my humble opinion, but you’ll have to try it out for yourself!  Just a few blocks from Wrigley Field and easy on the wallet!  Additionally, you be in for a surprise -the Ron Swanson theme they have going on is a bonus!
