Philly’s Best is hands down one of the best restaurants that offer the Philly style cheese steak in the Chicago area. There are 3 locations, but our go to is the one on Belmont avenue; situated between Sheffield avenue & Clark street in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood. Once inside, any true philly steak enthusiast will quickly notice the authenticity of this place’s attitude; in comparison to OG steak places in Philly (Pat’s & Geno’s). The sandwiches themselves stack right up to the originals and they serve some pretty good pizza as well, if you’re on a budget don’t worry; you’ll leave full for about $10. If you’re ever near Wrigleyville or the Lincoln Park area i’d highly recommend a visit, you definitely wont be disappointed.
Talk about a dive bar at its finest. These guys have local music playing weekly, great drink specials, and the best of all, greasy one of a kind bar food. The establishment started in 1955 by Stan Myslajek a former pro-wrestler. Stan created a gigantic garlic-infused roast beef sandwich which has not changed much to this day. The sandwich is absolutely HUGE, I mean it takes a real man to stomach one of these down. While just about all of the food delivered in-front of me looked delicious; the pizza, the nachos, and other sandwiches, when the decision came I had to go with the original. I won’t be the first to say it but. . . “Nobody Beats Mayslack’s Meats!”
Legendary Chicago pizzeria, Giordano’s, is NOW OPEN in Minneapolis. The restaurant has taken up shop at 2700 Hennepin, exciting news for pizza lovers…Not so much for Green Mill. As a former Chicagoan, I’d argue that Giordano’s is far from Chicago’s best; but it will definitely fill the void for those looking to go big on pizza. They were insanely busy their first couple of weeks with wait times exceeding 2 hours for delivery (had to try), but business should be settled to a manageable pace by now.

For you lazy bastards that prefer the ultimate choice of laziness (hey why not), the 3D printer appliance is available for your kitchen for just 1,000 euros. From just the click of a button, you can have pizza, cookies, pasta, and jelly. As of right now it mostly prints foods that are flatter, less in volume. There was a famous scientist/theorist that said everyone will have one in their kitchen in 30 years, and this was some time ago. I cannot remember whom it was, but he is spot on. Just wait, the next step we will have 3D printing appliances, that print appliances. That’s right, you heard it here first.
