Bandera, Chicago, IL

Bandera Restaurant Review

: This Michigan Avenue restaurant found its niche as a business lunch destination and attraction for shoppers along the Mag Mile. The rotisserie chicken at dinner has become a go-to for many, one that's converted into a “hacked” chicken salad with peanut sauce and honey-lime vinaigrette at lunch. The classic cheeseburger and barbecued beef back ribs don’t disappoint, while the signature jalapeño cornbread arrives tableside in a hot cast-iron pot. Make sure to dine early to request a windowside table by the Mag Mile, one of the main reasons diners seek out Bandera in the first place.
