Hi Kirk, one of my regrets of my Chicago trip was not trying an Italian beef sandwich!!! Is there anything comparable in SD? Next time you're in the area, head over to Niles where you can see the half-size replica of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. So random and wierd but total roadside oddity!

The Food Detective

There is a Five Guys burger joint down the street from my house that just opened.


that looked like some good eats!


Hi CC - Leaning Tower of Pisa?? I'd rather grab a good Italian Beef! ;o)

Hi TFD - You should check them out..... their fries aren't bad.

Hi Kat - Since I was in Chicago.... I needed at least a few Dogs and Beef sandwiches.


Man, you have me craving a hot dog with snap. By the way, did you know the East Bay Area has its own local hot dog variant? We used to go here when I lived up north. You could even buy packs of their snappy-garlicy dogs at Costco:


Nice, a trip that consists almost entirely of hot dogs and italian beef. Time to hit the gym!!


Hi Jan - I just took a look.... seems like a great natural casing dog.... just what I enjoy.

Hi Jason - You got that right...


there's an eatery in front of it! :)

to the food detective - thanx for the tip! i'll check out five guys burger soon.


I live in Itasca and I avoid Buona at ALL costs! Booooo on Buona. If you want a good italian, stick with Portillo's.


Hi CC - OK then.... I'll have to check it out!

Hi Nicky - I've been to Portillo's, so thought I should give Buona a shot.
