Editorial Review of Sammy's Touch

Hyde Park is a neighborhood rich with institutions, from the University of Chicago and the DuSable Museum to the Museum of Science and Industry. In the hearts (and stomachs) of U of C students and longtime residents, Sammy's Touch is just as important as those cultural landmarks.

Sammy's is a diner that screams "classic Chicago greasy spoon" from the moment you walk in, thanks to its weathered booths and tables. It specializes in cheap eats for people on the go, and, in that classic Chicago diner style, the kitchen dabbles in a little bit of everything. Folks looking for a quick morning pick-me-up can order an egg sandwich and pair it with a piping hot, slightly salty cup of coffee for a $3 breakfast of champions that beats whatever you'll find in a cereal box.

For lunch, Sammy's has some of the best corn dogs in the city. Diners looking for more sustenance should try the one-half fried dinner for $4.75 (it comes with free fries). Finish your meal at with a thick milkshake or some baklava.

Average cost: <$10
