Leonas (multiple north side locations)- Leonas claim to fame is their pizza, but the burgers and chicken can't be beat.

The Roger's Park location even has a free indoor movie room where your kids can watch Disney movies after they finish dinner.
Ed Debevics - (640 N. Wells) This loud 50's diner is a kid favorite. The waitresses are sassy and stop serving periodically to dance on the tables. Burgers, chicken fingers and grilled cheese are sure to please. For dessert, try the world's smallest sundae.
Foodlife - Located in Water Tower Place, this upscale food court has pizza, pasta, burgers, baked spuds and just about anything you're hungry for. Each person in your group can sample a different food, all while dining at the same restaurant.
Dick's Last Resort - (North Pier) BBQ is the word here with ribs and chicken served at long picnic tables. Even the adults wear bibs here! The place is very noisy and a screaming child will not even be noticed. After dinner, you can stroll around the shops at North Pier.
Gold Coast Dogs - multiple locations - Not just your average hot dog place, this upscale fast-food place serves hot dogs as well as swordfish sandwiches and great grilled chicken breast sandwiches. Perfect for the kid who wants another hot dog and the parent who doesn't.
R.J Grunts, Lincoln Park - A favorite from the 70"s has a large children's menu with the basics as well as a great salad bar and burgers and BBQ. Conveniently located across the park from the Lincoln Park Zoo.
Gino's East - (633 N. Wells) When you're craving true Chicago style pizza, Gino's is the place. Expect long, long waits and come hungry!
