What are Chicago's "heart attack" meals?

bourj | Mar 17, 2010 04:12 AM

While eating lunch today at Poochie's on Dempster (a char-grilled cheddar burger that is absolutely the most delicious thing on earth), my lunch companion and I started discussing the notion of "heart attack meals." You know, those incredibly unique and unhealthy specialties that you constantly find at roadhouses and family restaurants.

What would you say are some "heart attack specialties" in the Chicago area? That is, unique meals/presentations that go far beyond the usual unhealthiness of Chicago beef and dogs and whatnot.

Right now, the only thing coming to my mind is the Slayer burger at Kuma's. Any suggestions?
