Hey all! My name is Emma, a student and amateur food enthusiast living in Chicago. I’m chronically indecisive about choosing a place to eat, so this is my blog to rate restaurants based on my college student-specific needs. Here’s hoping it will help you out in a time of need.
The obvious one, in which I rate the yum factor of the food I’ve consumed. Beyond that, is there enough variety? Too much variety? Are there leftover-sized portions?
Is this staff friendly? Attentive? How fast did it take to get the food out?
How easy is it to access via public transportation? Is it a pain to walk to in the winter? Will you have to call an Uber?
Is this a cheap lunch kind of place, or a “wait until your parents come to visit” kind of place? How much can you expect to spend per person?
Grubby and casual? Bougie and expensive? Could it even be…Insta-worthy?
WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR
Date night? Eating alone? A place to bring your pickiest friend? There’s a category for every restaurant, folks, and I intend to place them all.
WOULD I RETURN
My ultimatum. You know, because I’m an expert.
