Good To Go is a Jamaican Cuisine restaurant that fuses the mouth-watering taste of Caribbean food with exciting new tropical cocktails and craft beer.   Our house specialties include Jerk Chicken, Oxtail, Brown Stew Chicken, Curry Goat, & Jerk Pork.  Our Tropical Cocktails, imported Jamaican beverages, fresh squeezed vegetable juices and island smoothies complete our island offerings.

Good To Go was established by husband and wife team,  Tony and Lenice Levy in 2002. It started as a small quick service restaurant located on the Chicago side of Howard Street and after 16 years of  building a strong following and dynamic business, they purchased, completely renovated and   opened a new location on the Evanston side of Howard Street in 2018.  


 Lenice is originally from the south side of Chicago and attended DePaul University where she received her Bachelors degree in Marketing.  Her 20 plus years in corporate America equipped her with the skills to manage all of the administrative, HR and corporate aspects of running a successful business. Her passion for architecture, business development, and property development has been intricate in the design and build of the new venue which is bursting with design elements that are unique and one of a kind .


At the age of 27, Tony Levy,  migrated to the United states from Jamaica. Being the eldest of 11 siblings created many opportunities for him to prepare daily meals alongside his mother.  Over the years he developed a strong passion for cooking and was delighted seeing people enjoy the tasteful entrees he would prepare.  His passion eventually turned into a burning desire to open an establishment to cater to a broader audience.  His three most notable creations include his homemade JERK SAUCE where the recipe originates from his great grandmother.  His all-natural house blended juice titled “STAMINA DADDY.’  Infused with various ingredients like oats, okra, green banana, peanuts, tonic and stout, STAMINA DADDY has become a household name for energy and stamina amongst the male patrons.  And, finally the JERK CHICKEN which is the household favorite by all.
