Side Trips from Chicago Restaurants


Kountry Kitchen Soul Food Place

Kountry Kitchen Soul Food Place Review

Grits, biscuits and homemade gravy, hickory smoked bacon and fried pork chops. These are some of the mouthwatering highlights at this off-the-beaten path destination for made-from-scratch Southern cooking. Humble beginnings in 1988 as a six-seat countertop diner, Kountry Kitchen Soul Food Place has evolved into a sit-down restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and early dinners. It also happens to be a standard stop for visiting celebs, including President Obama.

    Thanks. Read more
