Sisters Kathryn and Laura Pekarik had a longstanding passion for baking with a particular fondness for all things cupcake. However, it never occurred to them to go pro with their passion until 2010. Kathryn was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's T-cell Lymphoma that May and needed help paying for treatment. The solution? A bake sale. Laura baked 250 cupcakes for the event, and these pristine confections sold out fast. The positive response inspired her to open up Cupcakes For Courage. Now, Kathryn is in remission and Laura's food truck is going strong. She rolls around Chicago, IL whipping up sweet treats while raising money for charities and nonprofits dedicated to helping cancer patients. When Laura first started out, she had four original cupcake recipes to sample. Now, her menu sports a bevy of concoctions in a variety of irresistible flavors. From vanilla fudge to chocolate peanut butter cup to French silk pie, there’s something for everyone here. Over the years, Laura's moved beyond cupcakes alone. You’ll find a host of other sweet things like cakes and pastries. There’s also an entire menu of savory fare, from sandwiches to omelets to English muffins. Stomach rumbling? Then stop by Cupcakes For Courage and treat yourself. Even better? Book ‘em for your own event. It’s great food for a great cause. MUST TRY Survivor — A light, fluffy funfetti cake cupcake filled with pastry cream and topped off with a generous dollop of rainbow swirl buttercream frosting.

Things are simple at Luella’s Gospel Bird. The fried chicken offshoot of the larger Luella’s Southern Kitchen has been an important valve in the beating heart of Chicago’s southern food scene since they opened, and locals can’t get enough. We’re only dealing with fried chicken and sides here, so it should be easy to keep things simple. Bring friends, split all four sides—collards, yams, mac, and biscuits—and eat well. Brunch is a little more loaded up, so grab some chicken and waffles, shrimp and grits, beignets, or blueberry brown sugar French toast (or all four) and go nuts. The best part, you ask? Luella’s Gospel Bird is available for catering, so go ahead and book them for your next event. MUST TRY Buttermilk Fried Chicken — Throw some collard greens or mac & cheese on the side, and you’re in business

A tribute to owner Cassandra Estes' love of the Bronx street dogs of her youth, Hot Dog Fiend is the best kind of nostalgia - an active one. Future memories get dispensed through their window daily and come in every shade of mouthwatering perfection: the Bacon Bleu dog with bacon, bleu cheese aioli and onion strings, the Macho Nacho with homemade chili, jalapeño, wonton chips and cheddar, and of course the Bronx with grilled onions, sauerkraut and brown mustard, to name just a few. But if smaller is the way you wanna go, the Fiend's still got you covered. Dog Rolls are exactly what you're picturing - fried wonton stuffed to the brim with hot dog, cabbage and pickled veggies, paired with fresh aioli. The Chili Fiend inverts the Macho Nacho to give you a warm cup of chili topped by hot dog bits and cheddar. And if you absolutely must share, fries and hush puppies are also on avail. No matter which direction you veer (including all directions at once), the Fiend is here to make you feel like a Bronx kid again - or a Bronx kid for the first time. So what are you waiting for? Track down the food truck in Chicago, IL, or have 'em out to cater your next event. They won't disappoint.
