Bill's Drive-In, Evanston, Illinois.

Bill's Drive-In is located on Asbury Avenue (it's Western Avenue on the Chicago side of Howard Street) just 1/4 block north of Howard Street in Evanston, Illinois.

They have been dishing out hot dogs, hamburgers and polish sausage for over 50 years. The double cheeseburgers are old school and really worth the trip. It is not a gourmet hamburger, but it is 5-stars in my book.

Bill's used to serve only small bags of chips, but in the late 1980s or early '90s, they began serving really good french fries in a paper bag.

There is a small counter, standing only, to eat at along the front windows, but the line to order food and the people waiting for their orders have no other place to stand but in front of the counter.

In nice weather, many people eat at picnic tables that are in the parking lot, just behind the building. Most others will eat in their parked cars.
