My family will be in Chicago the first week of July for a family reunion. Our visit will be split between Downtown and Lombard (where the reunion will be held.)
I would like recommedations for 3 food types for which Chicago is famous: 1) Hot dogs; 2) Italian beef sandwiches; and 3) deep dish pizza.
I'm well aware that Chicago offers world class cuisine but, as a true Chowhound, I seek to discover food that can't be found elsewhere. Also, as a true CH, I'm willing to drive to get the best.
Thanks for the help and if any of you are coming to SoCal, I'll be more than happy to reciprocate.
