I will be in town over the 4th, and I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on the Taste of Chicago festival. I will staying in downtown, and I was wondering what faves you all might have. The website is very thorough, and many of the stands have participated in the past. Anyone ever have the deep-fried cheesecake? Sounds overhwelming! what say you, Chowhounds? who makes the best italian beef?
