Naturally, the meeting point for this Chicago food tour is Lou Malnati's pizzeria, where you'll get to know your guide and group and get your taste of Chicago's famous deep-dish pizza. This tour allows you to skip any waiting lines and sink your teeth into that piece of pie right away, which will fuel you up for the next 1.4 miles (2.2 kilometers) of walking. 

Learn about the origins of some of Chicago's famous dishes while you walk, a commentary often missing in do-it-yourself food tours. Your guide is well-versed in the history and culinary culture of each tasting you'll have over the next few hours. You'll also see some major landmarks as you try some Mexican street food, hot dogs, popcorn, roast beef, and other local specialties.
