la Barbecue

You might have to stand in line at la Barbecue. This is a good thing, because once you get to the front, place your first order (say, the Chi-Town Pinta, an unholy amalgam of a Chicago-style street dog and a late-night L.A. bacon-wrapped gutbuster), consume it, and then rapidly decide you want to try something else (la Frito Loco sounds good, doesn’t it?), you’ll have plenty of time to digest while you wait for round two.
