You don't have to spend a fortune to eat well in Chicago, and while fine dining gems like Alinea keep winning awards, our cheap fare is getting some attention as well.

Bon Appétit magazine recently named Chicago's Purple Pig one of the "10 Best New Restaurants" in the U.S., and this week the magazine featured nine Chicago joints in a "cheap eats" roundup.

Check out Bon Appétit's Chicago-centric feature here. We rounded up the list-makers below.

Big Star

The patio at Big Star is notorious for 2+ hour waits, but there is a reason for that. Their cheap, delicious tacos wooed Bon Appetit, so much that they named it No. 1 on their "cheap eats" list.

Big Star
1531 North Damen Ave.
