Original Al’s best on the planet
Their sandwich is weak. Even Alton Brown says so.


Their service at their original location on Taylor St. is trash and has been trash to the point I'd rather get a beef at Portillo's than them.

Portillo’s Italian beef is trash

Why not post this
loooong time ago on Route 36, east of Tuscola next to the Embarras River, there was a place called Pete’s Pub. I put their Italian Beef sandwich up against anything I have ever had.

Johnnies has set the bar for beefs for me

Vito & Nicks for thin crust tavern pizza

Portillos makes a good hotdog , but there are many places that do . Gene & Judes dogs are a little too “soft & smashed “ for me .

Parkys on Harlem in Forest Park is decent - fries are a lil too greasy tho . I’m not a fan of the super soft greasy fries that seem to be the rage now . if a fry can’t stand straight up when held , they were taken out of the fryer too early

one more thing - a true hot dog stand needs to serve Vienna Beef dogs (and not RedHot Chicago brand) , and as few other things as possible. A true hot dog stand can not have a flat top for burgers or tacos , nor a gyros spit.

Its not possible to do all those things correctly

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, but I’ve never understood the phenomenon of grown men buying a jersey with another man’s name on it. 🤷🏼‍♂️
I’ve bought two Illini player t-shirts.. Curbelo when NIL was first passed, no intention of ever wearing it, I support NIL and wanted to support the young man.
I also bought a Jayden Epps t-shirt before the season started. I thought the shirt was cool and it would be sweet to pull it out of a box in 20-30 years..

I’m 0-2..

What about watching another man play sports ?

Don't answer that one, but I am curious if my Shawn Kemp jersey from 1996 is worth more or less based on recent events...

Someone tell me about the level of competition the Illinois Wolves play? Not to be all racist, but I see a lot of white guys on the floor in their games. I don't see a lot of white guys in the Big Ten. Well except for Iowa and Wisconsin. I was kinda hoping Underwood would suggest Certa play for Meanstreets.

So what are we talking her is the EYBL significantly better competition than UAA. Does UAA have some great teams but overall talent level is less, or are they pretty similar talentwise.

If you have to couch what you're about to say with, "Not to be all racist," that's a great opportunity for you to rethink your statement before hitting enter.

As for playing for Meanstreets, you're assuming Meanstreets would want him. Not to mention that his family will be able to get him to wherever practices are held. He may be on the Wolves because it's the best choice for his family, and the staff's opinion may hold very little sway in the that regard.

Trust the staff and their evaluations. They've hit more often than they've missed

Well this isn't an answer at all. Not sure it's racist for a white guy to say, in general, white guys aren't as good at basketball. It was a joke.

Regardless of the stereotype and who is committing it against whom, it doesn't need to be said. And if you have to explain it was a joke, it wasn't funny. I work with teenagers. I know my smarta$$/sarcasm meter isn't broken.

And I did give you my opinion which is the only answer I give. Certa isn't on Meanstreets and part of the Nike circuit because he's selected to be on the Wolves. Whether that's because Meanstreets doesn't want him or he doesn't want them will be a mystery if/until someone comes out and tells us which it is.

I wouldn't hold my breath on that though.

You know when Illiniinquirer follows the player on IG it’s a wrap. Nothing we didn’t already know from our insiders. Excited to make it official! Seems like TJ still locked into the program. We have to make some noise with this squad.
