I bought so much food from here and it was only 30 dollars.. The different fish taste sooo different. You should try them all. We were staying in wicker park and this place was a short uber ride away. People behind the counter are friendly.

I have been going here so long, not sure when I started. Shrimp have always been great. Usually start with clam strips to let the shrimp cool a bit. Where else can you find Fries for 70 cents?

This is one of our guilty pleasures. Goose Island Shrimp is our favorite shrimp, period. Yes they're fried (the batter is wonderful!), no they don't have tables (good finger food for the car). But they have the best tasting shrimp I've ever had. We may...More
