U of I grads won't recognize the name of this Lincoln Park counter service spot, but the menu may look familiar -- Papa D's is owned by Anthony Donato, who also runs popular undergrad hangout Geovanti's in Champaign, Ill. The Chicago eatery serves the same hearty Italian beef sandwiches -- made using Donato's family recipe -- burgers, curly fries  and gyros as its central Illinois counterpart. Geovanti's hand-battered chicken strips, served with your choice of homemade honey mustard, barbecue or ranch sauce, are also on hand. Neighborhood residents and DePaul students are welcome to sample their sandwich at one of the restaurant's wooden tables; Papa D's also delivers, for a $3 charge -- and will drop your dinner off at any of the nearby bars on Lincoln for free.
