Captain's Catch

Chicago
$$$$

This Creole seafood shack is known for its customizable shellfish boils: you pick your catch, flavor (options include lemon pepper, Cajun, and curry), heat level, add-ons (corn, potatoes, or sausage) and voila, dinner is served. Though seafood boils are the main event here, fried fish baskets, po-boys, and wings are all on offer. Captain's Catch takes its fried food theme all the way home with state fair favorite funnel cake for dessert.
