Chili cheese fries (with REAL cheese)

Hiya Folks,

This is my first post since moving to Chicago; of course it's a request and not a review (I'm very rude that way)! ;}

I'm looking for something that may not exist out here. My honey is already bitching about chili-cheese fries. He's gotta have 'em. We're from L A, if you are familiar with Tommy's or Carney's or The Hat in L A, you'll have an idea what we're looking for.

Does anyone make chili cheese fries with (in order of importance, 1 being most important):
1. Real cheese ie shredded cheddar.
2. Chili that is sort of a "chili con carne" or "tamale" style
3. Steak-cut fries.
4. Fries can be ordered well-done or come that way without having to ask.

Thanks in advance!


(ps, what's with the mosquitoes and cicadas?!)
