The Best Tater Tots In Chicago

It's time to show some love for crispy bite-size hash browns. Wednesday is National Tater Tot Day--and Chicago has quite a few places to celebrate.

Though some food calendars say Tater Tot Day is on March 31, others say it is February 2--why not both?

In any case, we love tots at HuffPost Chicago, and our readers do as well. Check out our Top Tots list and let us know if we missed one of your favorite spots.
