We tried El Barko, a Mexican restaurant on the east side of Ashland a couple blocks south of the theatre. Medium pricing but good food.

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.

Park for free in the Church parking lot between the highway & Ashland, on the south side of the street. Be careful of the construction, but rest assured that you can get into the fenced lot - although maybe only if you drive in from Ashland.

If driving, give yourself extra time! I drove south on Ashland but couldn't turn left at Division. There was no parking on Ashland, went east on a street two blocks south, but because of the Kennedy expressway, I couldn't get over to Division and ended up on Elston! I had to then get to back to Division/Milwaukee/Ashland!!
