Chicago Roadfood Tour 2005 - Pictures!

This is the first round of photos I took for the Chicago Roadfood Tour. I think everyone had a terrific time, and I can speak on behalf of the Roadfood.com team that the next one will be on the East Coast!

    Well I know 2 places that will be must stops on my next trip to Chicago. That Max's beef sandwich looks like a pound of meat, and Byron's defines "running it through the garden". And is that a char dog I see hiding under the toppings at The Wieners Circle? No photo's of Manny's corned beef -you couldn't possibly have been full

    Great photo's Stephen. It looks like everyone had a great time.

    You are cordially invited to the East Coast for the next tour. I want one of those Hats.

    It WAS a fun time. It was great to meet the Sterns after being fans for 20+ years. They are down to earth and a lot of fun. Jane has an especially wicked sense of humor.

    Max's was good. The "ghetto" fries with cheese, BBQ sauce, onion, and giardinera were delicious. However, I still prefer Al's on Taylor street or Mr. Beef.

    Good hats.

    PS: I am the guy in the blue shirt and white hair never facing the camera in pics 14, 16, and 20.

    Looked like fun.. that sandwich in pic#3 looked great but seemed to be missing sumthin...hhhmmm..CHEESE wheres the cheese??? Its amazing how close to that sandwich the frozen product at walmart came but I used stripped bell peppers, oinions and jalapeno's, the fries look like a meal in themselves, thats the only draw back I see to a roadtour... saving space for the next stop..

    Good luck on getting the hats, I think they only made them for the tour, but maybe there is a private stock? The backs of the hat have the date of the tour on them. It would be nice to be able to purchase shirts though:) Stephen had a list of the people that went on the trip and we all wore name tags but I wonder if he could name all the people in each picture? Some people dont even post here but found out about it while searching.

    Great photos, Stephen. I thought yesterday was more fun than the law allows. My only regret is that I was so busy shmoozing, catching up with Roadfood team members (we hardly ever see each other) and meeting so many of the really great people who were part of the expedition that I didn't eat nearly enough (that charburger from Wiener's Circle looks especially delicious), and I totally missed out on the Garrett "mix" (Jane ate my bag, and I have her cheese-stained jeans to prove it!) I really look forward to doing this again.

    I'll just add a couple of pictures, from Max's, one of the "Ghetto Fries," the other of a menu posted on the wall, from a while ago.

    Michael, Todd ate those up fast too! You are lucky to have gotten a pic of those! I saw that cheeseburger and thought of Todd right away, unfortunately he never went in that place since he was talking and schmoozing as well. We do have a bag left of that Yummy popcorn let us know we will send it! Maybe next time we should do a meet and greet first:)

    The 2005 Roadfood Tour was a winner. I believe a great time was had by all. The food, the fun and the people made it all worthwhile. It was a treat to meet Michael and Jane and have a chance to talk to them. We feel we've known them for 27 years, since our first Roadfood trip to Skinhead's in Paducah, KY for breakfast (sadly closed). Looking forward to the next tour!
    Thanks to the entire Roadfood team.
