There is nothing in the world better then a Chicago Italian Beef Sandwich!!
No place has a better beef then Mr. Pups in Des Palines IL.
So many places that are chains cut back on taste and flavor. Me Pups isn't a chain - it's one small in and out type of place with a few tables.
Dang I can't wait til summer when I make my Chicago shopping trip!

Dang, I worked at Des Plains for 2 years and never heard of this place. Thinking back to all those times I might have had a nice lunch. Laughing

I've lived a lot of places and can think of favorite foods from each. Things worth a cross country or trans Atlantic flight for.
Florida
crabs legs and blackened grouper. I can get crabs legs here but grouper doesn't fly well.
key lime pie
Pennsylvaniadried beef, scrapple, and shoo-fly pie
hot pretzels with mustard and Philly cheese-steaks
Bassets ice cream
Connecticut, Maine
fresh boiled lobster
steamers
Paris
French fries (I know they have been renamed here but you can call N American fries whatever you want. There is no comparison to French fries especially from a friterie.)
crepes (There was a crepe stand on the sidewalk outside the school where I taught. I had one every workday.)
London
beer (Unless you go to a 5 star restaurant and order foreign food, the food is pretty dull.) But the beer is great.
Spain
Spanish potato tortilla
Italy
absolutely anything on the pasta menu
Pacific Northwest
I eat Japanese. Love sushi and that is my favorite fast food. It is available everywhere here and so popular it is always fresh. You can't drive 6 blocks without passing at least one superior Japanese restaurant.

That dog isn't a real Chicago dog --- it's missing celery salt and has ketchup on it.

OH OH OH
Pizza - the best regular crust is Barnaby's on Touhy and Wolf!
The best stuffed pizza is Nancy's in Niles on Golf Road around Milwaukee Ave. Tell Freddy that I sent ya!
