About the Author

Sgt. David J. Biscuit Haynes is a lifelong resident of Chicago, leaving only for four years to serve in the U.S. Marine Corps. Haynes has spent the past 15 years as a proud member of the Chicago Police Department, working some of the toughest neighborhoods on Chicago's West Side, running Chicago s first ever Homeland Security Task Force, and supervising squads in the19th District at Belmont and Western. He and his wife Anne have three children. Haynes is an Italian beef aficionado, active in ward politics, and smokes a JFR with a Connecticut wrapper. He makes the best chocolate chip cookies ever and has mastered the preparation of all the breakfast foods.

Christopher "The Bull" Garlington is a blogger and author, known for his stories of raising highly intelligent (devious) children published on the blog Death by Children. His articles have appeared in the Daily Herald, the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Parent, Orlando Magazine, Florida Magazine, Exito!, Catholic Digest, and the Orlando Weekly. His fiction has appeared in Another Realm, Bathhouse, South Lit, and The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature, of which he is most proud. Garlington writes from his home in Chicago. He smokes a La Gloria Cubana Seri R maduro, drinks Belgian ales, and makes a mean Gumbo.

Together Haynes and Garlington have hosted the radio program The Dave & Chris Show! since 2007, during which they cultivate and maintain a long-standing argument about...everything. From politics and video games to the importance of cool nicknames and secret societies, they cover it on their live weekly broadcast from cigar stores, bars, and other manly locales around Chicago. Their show first aired on WJJG and is now broadcast online on blogtalk radio.

This book is organized by beat cop district - which means you really have to know your city. I mean REALLY know your city. The restaurants reviewed are all reasonably priced - very busy. Now with this book and the discounts in the back of the book, they are even more reasonable. Introduced me to some very good restaurants.

This will be a Father's Day gift for the man who has everything. I have a hard time finding stuff for my step-father, and this was something I saw on a morning talk show. It was reasonably priced and I plan on helping my step-father taste test most of these eateries.

The Beat Cop’s Guide to Chicago Eats is a highly enjoyable read. The style and detail of these restaurant reviews convince you that these guys really have eaten every high-cholesterol treat in town and have lived to tell about it.

You can just hear the classic Chi-town cop talking in that classic Chi-town dialect.

Warning: You’ll find yourself craving something other than a salad.

Plus there’s coupons.

I purchased this book at Chicago’s Printers Row Lit Fest and got it autographed. How cool!

I wasn't even sure Chicago had food before I read this book! Seriously, an awesome guide written by two funny guys. Buy the book and you'll know exactly where to eat and what to order at every must-stop Chicago diner, drive-in, take-out counter and more. Stop reading, just buy the book!

Chicago dining at it's best. Not fine dining by any means. But if you have a little time and are in Chicago the premise of the book is in & out in a 1/2 hr or less and the majority of the time under $10 with a few noted exceptions. Read The Beat Cops Guide to Chicago Eats whenever you get hungry for good food. I would have volunteered to do research for this fine piece of literature. But the Beat Cops and writers are the real experts. I am looking forward to trying some of these establishments soon. Try not to read it on an empty stomach.
