This casual Wicker Park BYOB named for Popeye the Sailorman's burger-loving sidekick J. Wellington Wimpy features a lineup of all-natural, hormone-free burgers--you can build your own or choose one of the signature creations. Other options include a meatloaf burger, a tofu burger, and chicken and fish sandwiches, all served on burger buns. (Even the hot dogs here are served on burger buns, which receive a poppyseed dusting for Chicago-style authenticity.) Not up for a burger? Try the mac 'n' cheese or house-made chili. Though J. Wellington's is a counter-service spot, don't expect a fast-food atmosphere. The staff strives for personable service, and the comfortable dining room, filled with TVs often tuned to sports, invites lingering over a burger and shake.
