You’ll never be bored at Big Kids, a sandwich joint in Logan Square where nostalgia and creativity reign supreme. Open since 2020, the restaurant’s ‘90s-inspired sandwiches and sides are equal parts irreverent and delicious, incorporating everything from secret spice mix, potato chips and melted cheese to the signature Big Kids shiddy sauce—basically, the stuff of any stoner’s munchies-fueled dreams. Don’t miss the bodacious burger, either, featuring a smash patty that has been mixed with shredded cheese so the edges caramelize when cooked. And if you want to get your hands on it in the West Loop, head to Time Out Market Chicago.
