I'm happy to add Dak Wings to this list. Since we moved to Chicago 6 months ago, we've taken probably 7 different people to Dak, including two visiting brothers. It's good. It's very good.
Dak is a counter service Korean chicken wing place. (Dak is Korean for chicken)They double fry their wings, and they give you the double wing. (Each piece has a drumstick and a wing)

(BTW Crisp is still very good, and you should go there too. But I prefer Dak.)
The wings are a must, but they do have some limited other selections. My wife loves their bulgoggi rice bowls. I've also had the Dukbokki, which are chewy rice cakes covered with a sweet spicy sauce and bulgoggi.
|Other dishes include a rice bowl with egg|
Seating is limited, so when you go, grab a table as soon as you arrive. Get one of your party to order for everybody. Five wings is enough for one hungry person. Enjoy!
Dak is located at the Granville stop on the Red Line (half a block east)

They are open daily from 11:30 to 9, but get there earlier than 9, as they stop cooking around 8:45 (I found out the hard way)
