Sip Chocolate Shakes on September 12 at Best Local Spots in Chicago and the Suburbs
With uncharacteristically high Chicago temps this time of year, National Chocolate Milkshake Day is here just in time! Celebrate today’s holiday by sipping shakes at these Best Local spots near our corporate housing locations in Chicago and the suburbs.
Top off your soup and sandwich lunch with a chocolate shake at Best Local The Brown Sack (3581 W. Belden). This low-key hangout gets rave reviews for its sandwiches, including the Rueben and B.L.T. But don’t forget dessert! One Yelper claims this cash-only spot has shakes with “perfect milkshake texture, not too thick or thin.” Get there in just a 14-minute drive from Kingsbury Plaza in River North!
For an old-school suburban diner experience, head to Best Local Gus’s Diner (2160 Grove Road) in Rolling Meadows. Bask in rock-n-roll memorabilia during a casual breakfast or lunch. Even though it’s only open until 2pm daily, don’t skip trying a traditional chocolate milkshake after lunch. Only an 11-minute drive from Park Meadows in Schaumburg!
The only thing better than a good charburger is a good charburger paired with a chocolate milkshake. Stop by Best Local Paradise Pup (1724 S. River Road) in Des Plaines to cool down with a shake after enjoying what CBS 2 calls “one of the best burgers in Chicago.” Just a 4-minute drive from River 595 in Des Plaines!
