Dove's Luncheonette

Top choice tex-mex in Wicker Park, Bucktown & Ukrainian Village

Sit at the retro counter for Tex-Mex plates of pork-shoulder posole and buttermilk fried chicken with chorizo-verde gravy. Dessert? It's pie, of course – maybe horchata, lemon cream or peach jalapeño, baked by Hoosier Mama. Soul music spins on a record player, tequila flows from the 70 bottles rattling behind the bar, and presto: all is right in the world.
