If you're coming into the city one of the days:
http://revbrew.com/home
http://hopleaf.com/ (get there early before 6 or you will be waiting 2 hours. No burgers here but good food)
http://haymarketbrewing.com/
http://www.owenandengine.com/ (make a reservation.)
http://www.longmanandeagle.com/
http://lockdownbar.com/ (very loud. Burgers and Metal. Flatscreens everywhere showing old metal bands tour videos. Not a place to bring your wife for a quiet dinner.)
http://jerryssandwiches.com/ (great beer list, food is just OK.)

Out in Lombard the hotel can direct you to any number of places but there's one place that started out with a location in Chicago and expanded out to Lombard - DMK Burger Bar

http://dmkburgerbar.com/

It's right near the hotel. Griddled hamburgers and beer. I recommend it.

I HIGHLY recommend Taylor Brewing Company. It's less than a 5 minute drive from the hotel. I believe you take a left onto Butterfield from the entrance near the movie theater, and head down a light or two. Great micro-brewery with some tasty beers. Good burgers a plate of nacho's so big you'll #!@% a brick!

Taylor Brewing Company. was that the one that was just past the TGI-Fridays on the right with the green and white sign on the a corner? I think that place is gone now. I'll check when I go to the bunker in a little while. Yeah. just checked online. Long Gone. I think there's now a Chick-Fil-A franchise in its place.

living in the area I would definetely recommend DMK burger. Its one of those "gourmet" type Burger places so you'll expect to pay about 10-12 for a burger in general but they are so freaking delicious its worth it.

If you are just looking for good food close to the con there are a lot of places around the mall.

Claim Jumper being my personal favorite. Mostly because they have the most amazing beef ribs.
