    Great stuff.  Have you ever tried Saw's Juke Joint?

    I have not. Might give it a try sometime though.

    In Richmond Indiana recently we ate at Firehouse BBQ and Blues before seeing comedian Haywood Banks, who is hilarious.

    It is in an old firehouse.  BBQ ribs were fantastic as was  a pulled pork sandwich with mac and cheese on it.  

    Fantastic old building and was a really cool place. They also have blues acts and it had started when were were there and it was very entertaining.

    Not that there is any reason to go to Richmond, but if you find yourself in the area hit up Firehouse BBQ and Blues

    Ate at a tiny place called Rick's White Light Diner in Frankfort, KY on Saturday. It was featured on Diners, Drive-in's, and Dive's at some point. Really cool little spot.

    The Hanger steak is legit.

    Lola's Hanger steak is excellent as well as their Pork Chop.

    What exactly are you looking for? Those places aren’t really near the downtown area, but there is a Giordanos (not the original) nearby.

    Oh, you’re way far south. That’s McCormick Place. I’ve never really been, but it’s a huge business area so I’m sure they have a ton of restaurants in the area.

    For pizza though, I’d make the trip into heart of downtown for Lou Malnatis or Giordanos. But personal favorite, and best in city for Chicago style is Pequod's Pizza. But it’s further north.

    Thanks, they each have a location within walking distance of the hotel

    Lou's is better, IMO.

    Agree for most part. But if you go deep dish (I never do, unless a friend wants to try) I prefer Giordanos. The thin crust and other menu options (Lou’s salad is great) are all better.

    Period. End of discussion.
