"Four words that say summer in Chicago: Meat on a stick. Well, we suppose pickle on a stick works too, but since meat on a stick is what this tiny tiki-inflected counter-service spot in Wicker Park is all about, we'll go with that. These skewerz -- excuse us -- skewers aren't just any kebabs, either: Highlights include coconut and cilantro-marinated shrimp with mango chili, five-spice grilled filet mignon and passion fruit-glazed salmon. Plus, it's open late on weekends for your all post-pub needs.
You probably guessed by the name that this quick-serve spot features meat on a stick (in fact their tagline is “get stuck on the stick”) but here they offer offbeat “island fusion” selections served in a island-inspired 12-seat storefront with tiki touches. Skewer highlights include coconut and cilantro-marinated shrimp with mango chili, five-spice grilled filet mignon and passion fruit-glazed salmon -- get ‘em solo, as part of a combo or an entrée. BYOB or keep the tropical theme with a coconut banana smoothie or a lemongrass iced tea. Good news for Wicker Park pub-crawlers looking for a post-bar bite: They’re open late on the weekends."
