You will find several places to eat along Division street west of Ashland. Smoke Daddy is about 1800 West Division. On the cheap side, if you want a hot dog joint that has what I regard as the best Italian sausage in Chicago, drive north on Ashland a short distance for Choppers. Get the sausage with hot giardiniera. Shakes are good, too.
