You need to drive a fark of a long way, or come "packing heat"

Some of the better places, the shacks with the cooker hanging out the back are in some pretty bad war zones.

But if you can travel, I think Robinsons in Oak Park is a good one, and I know Hecky's in Evanston has a line out the door.

Don't know the addy for Robinsons. Handful of other places further out in the burbs. Where exactly you gonna be?

If your in Downtown proper, or River North, you can always walk to Carson's. Its okay, but priced for the tourist crowd. The first two are worth the drive.

These would be the ones that I would like to try. 8) Seriously. I bet you know some good neighborhood ones on the South Side.

Thanks, folks! I think I'll give Hecky's a try, and then I'll go catch a show at the Next Theater company which is just up the street. I'll post my review next week.
