One of the best features about a city like Chicago, is the fact that you can experience the taste and culture of so many different countries. Only in a city like Chicago would you find the variety of Eastern European Restaurants like the ones listed here. Eastern European Restaurants feature cuisines of countries like Poland, Hungry and Russia and while you will find a similarity in some of the items here with some of the Western European Cuisines, for instance potato pancakes like you would find in a fine German Restaurant, only a Hungarian Restaurant can make a goulash.
The prices listed are from the dinner menu as that is usually the most expensive, so if you go for lunch, you might be paying less. They are entrees only unless it says otherwise. Appetizers, soups, deserts, drinks will be extra, unless it says otherwise, but you should be able to get a good idea of what a meal will cost by comparing the entree prices. The prices are in effect as this is written, but they are subject to change at any time. And the restaurants web sites all have menus, so you will be able to get a sneak peak.
