ORD area eats?

Eric7 | Mar 11, 2009 05:30 PM

I'll be in the O'hare airport area for a week(work). I'm from NYC, Italian-American, so no need for for reccomendations for pizza or pasta. Looking for Chicago food I can't get back home. Fried chicken, southern styled BBQ, steak houses, German or Mexican close to ORD or the Blue line. Hot dogs? I already know Portelli's(good, different from our dirty dogs) is there something else better close by? Any other ideas for somebody stuck in Rosemont for a week? Skip Italian,Greek, Asian(Chinese,Korean,Japanese,Thai) and Indian. No offense but I can get that here from the 7 line(subway). PLZ, No haute cuisine, atmosphere not required, blue collared crowd, no wives, a hole-in-the-wall with damn good food or at least better than I'll get in a hotel is what I'm looking for. Thanks E7
