Bushie, agree. I may be back there this spring for a business trip and keeping track of these recommendations!
Thanks Chicagostyle! Went to a Shaw’s in Atlanta last year and the food was pretty good.
TJ, thanks for the trip report! Chicago is one of my favorite cities, and I really enjoyed your triplog. [:)]
..and there you go.
I had a great meal at Shaw’s about 15 years ago, hope its still good.
I have no idea what/where Shaw’s is, much less whether they are still open or not 🙂
I assume this is a Chicago place you are asking about, so maybe one of the Chicago-based members can answer your question.
What about Shaw’s? are they still open and as good as i remember????
Chicago dogs ARE much better than those here in Cincinnati, per se.
The treat in Cincinnati, alluded to above, is the cheese coney: a steamed dog on a fresh bun topped with chili and grated cheddar, onions and mustard optional. Cincinnatians often lunch on one of these paired with a 3 way (spaghetti topped with the same chili and cheese)
The difference is here that they’re both good in their own city — I wouldn’t expect to find a good coney in Chicago nor would I expect to find a good stand-alone dog here in Cincinnati.
Oh, and thanks Bushie 🙂
Great triplog, TJ! Thanks!! [:)]
The Chicago dog is the best. I like the five way.

For Cincinatti, you gotta try Chile dogs. They used to sell different "ways". You can get 1 way, 2 way, 3 way, 4 way and 5 way there. A bun, hot dog, chile, raw onions, tons of Cheddar Cheese, all piled on. It’s been a while so I don’t remember the "way" deal but they were great when I was there on trips. Reading Road has a lot of places that serve them from what I remember.
Maybe someone else can elaborate on the subject but these were "unique" to this city and were great!
Thanks, it was my first opportunity…I don’t travel like you sales guys…..
I actually posted that before reading through the whole thread and realizing your tastes, my apologies. Glad you enjoyed the Berghoff though! Rhodesfood.com opens up about 6 pm every day at my place [;)]
Well, uh, I generally don’t drink alcohol. Nothing against it, per se, just never acquired a taste for it, which my wife says is a good thing 🙂
So, the only beer I had on the trip was a small sampling of Guinness, which was suprisingly good….
So, Rhodes, when are we gonna see rhodesfood.com open up? *grin* *couldn’t resist the pun*
Yes, oh yes! Don’t forget to have a beer (or two).
