Funny thing about this Navy Pier–area pit stop: where you’d expect a tourist rip-off, you instead find real value. Cold bottled beers ring in sub-fiver (a miracle in this area) and the grill items—gyros to Chicago dogs—are reasonable and rival more authentic spots around town. Forget the blaring TV and dingy decor—a pittance for the unexpected quality.
