Nooorm! | Nov 25, 200504:05 PM

I have just moved to St. Charles from Houston and am looking to try the local fare. I can read the backlog of messages for a discussion of which deep dish, italian beef, and hot dog spots are best. Are there any other Chicago originals I need to try? Downtown is a hike from here but I'm willing to go wherever I need to go to get the best. As for my day-to-day eats, any place out here in the Fox River Valley I just have to go to? I know Portillo's, Gino's East, Lou Malnatti's, and Giordano's are all out here in Kane County and I will get to them. Where else should I go?
