Stopped in by chance before our Northwestern tour - and so glad to discover it!! Heads up - they only accept cash, ambiance is lacking, and only serve RC (no Coke or Pepsi). Despite this, probably the BEST WINGS anywhere!!! Fried to perfection, these wings...More

Not sure why this place is so highly rated. Food is ok but because of the lack of cleanliness and temperature control in the dining room we won't be back. Bathrooms were dirty and had no option for hand drying. There was an electric hand...More

Not the fanciest place. You walk in, place order at counter, wait for them to call your order and you pay. Grab a table, and go crazy! I get the suicidecwings, which despite their name, are tame. But friggin delicious, oh yes!!! Pickled jalapeños and...More

Okay. Like most evanstonians, north shore residents, chicago foodies, and amateur or professional critics I, as well as them, LOVE buffalo joe's. This is the location which has the waffle fries, the howard and green bay road locations have WEDGE chips. I have a go...More
