What could possibly be bad about that?  More great, Chicago original food, the Jibarito.  The latest issue of Cafe Media features ratings for the best Jibarito:

From their article:  "The Jibarito, a Puerto Rican-Chicago signature dish, is a unique treat: tender seasoned steak, lettuce, tomato, grilled onions, cheese and mayonnaise piled into a sandwich composed of two crispy strips of fried, green plantains smeared with garlic sauce...Juan "Pete" Figueroa invented the Jibarito at his restaurant, Borinquen, in the Humboldt Park neighborhood."
