I hope I can add some depth to this BBS. I spent 2 years driving around Chicago and the suburbs doing deliveries and eating and getting paid for it!!! I miss that job...Anyway I am located in the South Suburbs and hope to direct anyone to the best places I can!!! I still try to get out there and eat in the hole in the wall joints that most people pass because it doesn't look appitizing...Also if anyone can help I am going to L.A. again I want to eat like the locals do...and I am not talking CPK. I like that CPK even though I am from Chicago. It's different and it's tasty...Also I quit smoking almost 2 months ago and my sense of tast has returned and I want to taste everything that I have missed over the past 10 years...Thanks fellow Chowhounds, I fell like I am amongst friends!
