Dove's Luncheonette

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

Grab a seat at the retro counter for Tex-Mex plates of pork-shoulder posole and shrimp-stuffed sweet-corn tamales. Dessert? It's pie, of course – maybe lemon cream or peach jalapeño, depending on what staff have baked that day. 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.
