The “Mable” in question here is the chef’s mom, and the food at this place in Bucktown seems like the the kind of thing you wish your mom made when you were little. For instance, there’s a whole section of the menu devoted to delicious mac and cheese dishes, including an upgraded Hamburger Helper with ground beef, jalapenos, and caramelized onions. You can’t go wrong with one of those, or another special, like the prime ribs or the meatballs. The interior, with its A-frame slatted wood roof, exposed brick, and twinkly lights, feels very homey, and overall, Mable’s is a perfect example of a super cute reasonably priced place you’d want to visit with a few friends.
