Hello ChiTown, I was wondering how everything went for you. Too bad about missing dinner, but Monicals is a local downstate chain that has good pizza, if often indifferent service.
Coney O Kanes is a new name (and not very marketable IMO) for a previous place, so that is the problem there. Harolds probably gives you the best combination of good food and local color IF you can tolerate the smoke. What did you think of the custom of the customers serving each other coffee? Hope you got the hash browns which are always good, and I wll look forward to hearing about Dr of BBQ who I also need to go see soon. Todd
