Wrigleyville is known for having a plethora of Cubs-themed taverns, but Rice’N Bread is a special spot for dinner or even pre-gaming a baseball game.

Not only is this a delicious restaurant with bountiful menu options, but it’s also a little slice of Chicago’s history. Open since 1959, Rice’N Bread (known then as Hamburger King) has served American classics, like hamburgers and omelettes, alongside Korean flavors and dishes. This is where their new name fits in: “rice” refers to a staple in Korean plates while “bread” is a staple in American cuisine.

Whenever I go, the host and waitstaff greet me with enthusiasm. I personally think you can never go wrong ordering bibimbap, but I love their “over rice” entrees (one with beef is pictured here). This bowl is served with rice, a protein of your choice, noodles, green onions, Korean sauces (their mild is hot, so beware the hot option is VERY hot), and a small, fried dumpling. This dish is filling, unique, and will make your tastebuds pop.

Did I mention they have excellent prices? I have yet to try a hamburger here, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s one of the best around. Another charming aspect of Rice’N Bread is that they are a BYOB restaurant. Many restaurants in Chicago are “bring your own bottle” and I think it’s a really fun experience bringing your own pack of seltzers or bottle of wine to Rice’N Bread to go alongside your meal.
