Ugo's Logan Square in Chicago

When I lived near the intersection of Armitage and California a few years ago, the food options were fairly limited and imbalanced. You could have a high-end foodie meal at Table, Donkey and Stick or grab a hot dog at the Tastee Freez. All of that has changed drastically thanks to restaurants like Ugo?s at…

Gentrification has drastically transformed Logan Square in the last few years from a primarily Latino neighborhood to hipster paradise with both positive and negative results. For all the cool bookstores like Uncharted and great restaurants like Lula Caf and Longman & Eagle, there have been longtime businesses that have closed and residents forced out. However,…

Boiler Room is Logan Square’s Best Dinner ...

Boiler Room Pizza Beer and Meatballs

I almost put the claim in the title as " Boiler Room Chicago's Best Dinner Deal " but that would be a hard claim to fully backup. However, even with Chicago being so expansive and the food scene constantly exploding? Boiler Room remains as one of the best bangs for your buck in the city.…
