Happy 4/20! Today we’re celebrating our favorite *legal* drug, marijunana. Whether you’re rolling a fat blunt, hitting a vape pen, nibbling some edibles, or taking a few dabs, one thing’s for sure: you’ll be high AF. And well, you’ll be hungry. So before you smoke up, scope out this list of late night munchies around Chicago.
Maxwell St. Depot
Now here’s an idea: get lit while listening to Snoop Dogg then stuff your face with some dogs. This no-frills fast food joint is known for their bone-in pork chop sandwich, savoury sauteed onions, and perfectly crisp fries. Open 24 hours for all you night owls. Get your order in here.
This counter-serve style restaurant on Ashland offers gyros and sandwiches along with wings and perfectly deep fried fare. From chicken nuggets and shrimp baskets to twelve different types of subs, there’s something for every stoner. Open 9am to 6am. Get your order in here.
Cannabis connoisseurs! This old-school hotdog stand (started in 1939) is home to the original Maxwell Street Polish sausage. Other popular items include the double all-beef hot dog, pork chop sandwich, and double cheeseburger. And the best part? It’s open 24/7 for all your after dark cravings. Order on Doordash here.
Feeling some chinese food? Chi Cafe has the hookup. Open 3pm to 2am, you can literally find just about everything here. Favorites include their Cuttlefish Roll, Marinated Duck, Smoked Duck, and Deep Fried Tofu. Keep blazing, stay amazing, and get your order in here.
Puff, puff, pass the tortilla chips. This bourbon and beer-focused, taco-slinging, late-night honky-tonk in the heart of Chicago’s Wicker Park is sure to fill you up without letting you down. Big Star classics include nachos the size of your head, tacos for both carnivores and vegetarians as well as killer guacamole. Order delivery or curbside carryout here.
Love a good herb? So do the folks at Traspasada…although their favorite green is cilantro. Get down on some dope authentic Mexican eats including pork tacos, carne asada burritos, chicken enchiladas, etc. etc. Their menu is pretty extensive so you may want to order ahead of time here.
Cheesie’s Pub and Grill
Someone must’ve been super high while designing Cheesie’s logo. Because it’s a grilled cheese…smiling. So there’s that. But let’s talk about the food. Is there anything better than gooey, melty dairy slapped between two pieces of perfectly toasted bread? Answer: no. Especially after a few J’s. Order here and do the thang.
