Jorge Torres, 29, of Bridgeport, with Jessica Paski, 23, of Lakeview, outside of Simone's. "I told my friends next time they go to Simone's, they have to tell me. I really want to come back," Paski said.
"We just moved to Pilsen and wanted to get to know the restaurants. It's a great price, less than a dollar per restaurant." --Priscilla Martinez, 21, with Cesar Nevarez, 22, who said he was planning to hit every restaurant on the tour and "wouldn't be sick at the end of it."

"I think we're finished; we've only done a third of the tour and we're completely full. It's too much." --Julien Roux, 28, with wife Edith, 28, of Hyde Park. The couple is originally from France and have been in the United States for just two weeks.
Adrian Oceguera, 21, with Melissa Campos, 19, after picking up Mexican hot chocolate from Cafe Jumping Bean. "It's really fun. I'm definitely going to do it again next year. It's a lot of food so we're trying to pace ourselves," said Ocegura.

"We're gonna get stuffed today! There are a couple of places that I've been to before and I like, but there's a lot of new ones I'm definitely hoping to try." --Adriana Zavala, 25, with Jorge Garcia, 25
