If you’re a small-town kid at heart, head far south to Hegewisch. This place is packed with local families on Wednesdays and Fridays for the house specialties: fried chicken and walleye pike. Besides the simple, thin-crusted, greaseless chicken and the hefty portions of crispy fish, you’ll get pickled beets, cottage cheese, fries, slaw and raw green onion—all for around ten bucks. “Down-home” doesn’t do the scene justice; the brother-and-sister team that runs the place hands out Hot Wheels to kids who finish their meal.
