This was our first time stopping in Feed for dinner. If you're from out-of-town, the location is a straight shot west of MagMile. The Chicago bus lets off right out front. It's in an industrial area and there's not much besides a bar or two besides Feed. Don't let this discourage you from going over there; it's worth the trip if you love hearty comfort food.
Right off the bat the staff was super friendly and helpful with suggestions from the menu of what was good that night. We split a whole chicken with 3 sides and dessert for around $20. The chicken was cooked very well but not dry, skin fantastic. The mac n cheese was nice and creamy and light but not too cheesy. I personally liked it that way, although others may be looking for a heavier/cheesier dish. The homemade mashed potatoes were perfect. The potato salad was heavy on the mustard and my friend loved it but I stuck with the black beans. Ask to try stuff before ordering if you're not sure. I'm pretty sure if their not really busy they'll help you pick something to your liking.
I wanted to try the corn pudding everyone raves about but the counter guy said not to as it was a bit dry late in the day. I appreciate the honesty as he clearly wanted us to have a great first impression. Friendly service is just as important as the food to me these days.
Finally, dessert was the triple berry pie. I was very impressed with my slice. It was slightly heated with whipped cream and still retained a nice texture. Usually heated berry pies get all runny and soupy on the plate. Not too much blueberry, not too much blackberry made it very good. At this point, I was ready for a food nap and we still each had over a half plate to wrap up for home. Now I know it's not about the quantity but the quality, but when you're on a dining budget, it's nice to have a leftover lunch of tasty treats the next day.
This food is really really good, fair pricing and a casual comfortable setting to eat it in. Thank you Feed, we'll be back to try that corn pudding soon.
