Mike Austin's cover story about chefs taking the casual eatery route resulted in some very delicious-looking photos of wallet-friendly food that very likely will send you running to said casual eateries to satisfy your sandwich/noodle/taco craving. Place a towel over your keyboard and click away.

And as this cheap chic movement barrels along, here's something else to get behind (or, technically, in front of): the walk-up window. Big Star touts its walk-up window; the latest to do so is Taco Joint, which opened this week at 1969 N. Halsted (though its window won't actually be operational for a few more weeks).

The idea is nothing new, of course, but always appreciated, whether you're walking up for tacos al pastor, sugared waffles or a Tastee-Freez.
