Ah, the Taste of Chicago, our annual chance to take an extended lunch break and go to town on sausages, fried food and Rainbow Cones. While standbys like Billy Goat Tavern, BJ's Market and Ricobene's are back again, this year there are six new stands setting up each day. Plus, there's a rotating selection of food trucks and pop-up restaurants. We tried all the "taste portions" from the new stands, most of which cost 5 tickets (about $3.50), plus some food truck items. Here's our ranking, from worst to best.
Want more food recommendations? Since most longtime vendors haven't changed their menus in years, here's our reviews of food from 2013, 2012, 2011 and 2010.
