BetterMetalSnake: Went to the Taste once. ONCE. Overpriced snack sized portions of chain food, next to about a billion smelly teenagers with no place to sit or wash your hands. Give me a Hotpocket any day.


My complaint with the local "Taste of" event is that it is supposed to garner interest in local restaurants. They aren't supposed to "turn a profit" - they should be pretty much giving food away to get you to try it out, with the idea that you will patronize their businesses.

Instead, we get half of the places serving up minuscule amounts of overpriced food, only proving I didn't really want to eat there anyway.

Infobahn: Eddie Adams from Torrance: New York pizza is flat and flavorless.

Chicago Deep Dish is the one true pizza.

And yet it is the NY Style pizza that is far more popular than the Deep Dish crap.



And the Twilight books were all best seller.  So, your point is, basically, that people like crap.

It doesn't make it (NY pizza) less crap.

Chicago Deep Dish Pizza isn't Pizza.  It's a crappy casserole.

There, I said it.

The pizza cognition theory:

Mine is My-Pi Chicago style deep dish with good sausage, halved tomatoes, plenty of herbs in the sauce, cheese on top and browned crust on the bottom and 2" deep.

/deep dish rules, all others drools

jaytkay:   When I lived in LA, the company lunch room had "bratwurst" day.

WTF you morons hotdogs are not bratwurst WTF



Yeah, they're not hotdogs, but they're clearly superior to hotdogs.

Either way. Love the stuff.

Damn. Close to midnight, all the pizza joints are closed, now I'm hungry.

Wanted to tell Chicago and New York to go to hell, but I'm in a "flyover state" and have a life. No livestock involved, pervert.

Eh, f*ck it. I'll play (again). Long Island pizza kicks NYC's ass, and Chicago casserole sucks balls.

The Taste used to be so great, I remember having a lots of fun and great food there in the past. This summer, I went for the first time in 7 years, and it sucked. Beer was $8-12, snack portions $6, small portions $12. shiat was expensive, lines very long, selection limited (compared to past experience), plus the whole place was ridiculously crowded and loud. Not at all how I remembered it. I will probably not come back.

Tom_Slick: Mid-Westerners do love their Hot Dish Casserole


Please, someone from Atlanta has no role to play in a pizza conversation unless it's whether Papa John's or Pizza Hut rule harder.

Therefore McDonald's hamburgers are the best in the world?

Anastacya: I made pizza from scratch tonight. Hand-tossed the dough, our own toppings... was delicious.

/stuck in South Dakota
//oh god


Ain't nothing wrong with homemade, no matter what kind you like.

Danger Avoid Death: When I read this, being from Burbank, CA, I immediately thought of this place:

[media-cdn.tripadvisor.com image 550x273]

A restaurant down the street from me owned by actor Joe Mantegna. Only been in there a couple of times and was completely underwhelmed. Way too pricey for what you get, and the food is only mediocre at best.

The iconic Pinks is much better, as was the place that stood on same lot as Taste of Chicago years ago, an eatery called simply -- if somewhat inelegantly -- "The Hot Dog" ("Where 8 inches is just average" was the boast featured on their sign, duplicated on hats, t-shirts and bumper stickers.)


Pinks blows.  The chili on the dogs tastes metallic and the dogs themselves are gross.

I liked Portillos when I lived in Chicago surburbs.

Malnati's and Giordano's was alright once in a blue moon.

Burn_The_Plows: Rann Xerox: Stopped going when I saw McDonalds there along with Harold's Chicken Shack.

Don't be talking shiat about Harold's. Back in the 90's there was one next to the Greyhound station downtown. Where else could you see a menu where almost every item was misspelled, get a side of "braed" for $.10, or a giant box of lard fried french fries for $1.50?



Don't get me wrong.  I love Harold's Chicken, too.  In fact, I loaded up Friday night on an order of 8 wings with mild sauce, large order of fries for the Underboss (i.e. daughter) and an order of cole slaw for the Overboss (i.e. wife).  However, I don't consider it to be a restaurant that makes something special, a concept that was the original idea of the Taste of Chicago.

Someone already beat you to that up thread.  My argument is that Deep Dish is not pizza.  If that is true, Shepherd's Pie is Pizza.  It's like calling Boston Cream Pie a pie when it is really a cake.

If it's not pizza than nothing that isn't from Naples is pizza.
