Best popcorn we have ever had! It's a must when we visit Chicago . We haven't been here in 10 years and we were still talking about this place. We recommend this to everyone. You won't be disappointed .

A friend said this was a must so off we went to the store. Long lines! But there was a server who continually came by with fresh samples for everyone. Great tactic because it made you order more than whet you originally planned on getting....More

I'm not a popcorn person but my wife wanted to try it out since it's something here in Chicago. Yes - it's good food!

This is a must visit if you are in Chicago. I am a caramel popcorn addict and it was probably the best I have ever had. Lots of flavors and combinations to choose from. Good size portion for the price.

I am not a huge fan of Popcorn, but I was walking by the storefront and smelled their Garrett's Mix popcorn and it drew me in. I ended up purchasing the caramel cashew popcorn, and it was the best thing ever. Do yourself a favor...More

Every time we visit Chicago we stop by Garrett's the first day. The line moves fast and it worth the wait. Get the Chicago mix of caramel and cheddar. Best of both worlds.

When I go to Chicago Garrett's is the only thing I must do/see/eat. This store is my favorite. It is hot and fresh. I can eat a large bag myself of the Chicago mix... this time we went to the store at Water Tower Place...More

All the rage with Chicago locals and tourists, but I've had better in many places. The mix of caramel and cheese is popular, but it is greasy and the caramel is really dark- almost burnt. Think they make it with molasses. Found the Kettle Korn...More

I knew when I saw the line outside this place that it must be good. The 20 minute wait was worth it. Gourmet popcorn with a wonderful variety of flavors.

This is some of the best popcorn I've ever had . They have several different kinds to choose from ,my favorite was the caramel with cheese mix. Go on a weekday less crowded otherwise expect a long wait.

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.

The earlier, the better. However, there is usually a line out the door. Don't fret, it moves pretty fast. It is worth the wait!

PS, Garrett Mix used to be called Chicago Mix. I asked them what they called it in other Cities, they claimed Chicago Mix. Guess they caved. Now Garrett Mix, cheese and caramel. WARNING, the cheese is greasy. If you start... More
