"Crazy For Condiments: 5 Restaurant Sauces You Have to Try"
By Monica Engbr
Chicago has experienced a wave of upscale, innovative house-made condiments, but some of our favorites come from humbler spots with deep cultural roots. Here are five favorite house-made condiments. They reflect my love of garlic, robust chiles and pungent flavors, which may not please every palate.
HUB'S tzatziki sauce
5540 N. Lincoln Ave.; 773-784-4228, hubsrestaurant.com
Served with: Gyros and skewered meats.
But try it with... Fries, a burger, "some customers even eat it with a spoon, they love it so much," says owner John Thanoukos.
Takeaway: 40 cents for a 4-ounce tub.
After swooning over this thick creamy cucumber sauce for years, I was shocked to learn it was made not with rich Greek sheep yogurt but sour cream-along with chopped cucumber, fresh garlic, vinegar, olive oil and lemon juice. Still, I love the way it acts as a cool, tangy foil to the rich, spicy slices of gyros. It's also great for dipping with fries and as an accompaniment to veggies and bread."

"Eatin' cheap at Hub's. If you 'like-a da juice, eh?' then you might want to check out Hub's in Lincoln Square. It's serving up Greek and American eats and find out about its SNL connection.
You like-a the juice, eh? Metromix's Pogo sure does as he checks out Hub's in Lincoln Square, near the Budlong Woods area - where Greek food meets American all for one low price."
