Where’s The Best Place To Eat When You Have The Munchies In The City? Chicagoans Weighed In

Our readers love Jeri's Grill, Mexican food and burgers when they're high.

  • Credibility:

DOWNTOWN — Weed is now legal in Illinois — which means Chicagoans are gonna need a whole lotta snacks.

And just like when Block Club wondered which Chicago spot had the best drunk food, we turned to our readers to ask: Where’s it best to grab a bite when you have the munchies?

Mexican food, burgers and Jet’s pizza proved popular picks, but others also suggested fast food over local businesses or even the grocery store (who doesn’t love a late-night creative session in the kitchen?).
