    I don't know anything about Chicago shrimp, but for fried shrimp in a very casual, Roadfoody kind of place, I would recommend Jumbo's in the 'hood in Miami.   It's close to an I-95 exit.    The conch fritters are very good, too.

    I enjoyed the shrimp from La Camaronera's Fish Box Food Truck, but that definitely is not Chicago-style.
     

      They have a take-out and stand-up-only restaurant in Little Havana.  Here's the website for both the truck and the restaurant:

        phatphil Jumbo's moved a bit up seventh avenue.  It's at 75th Street now.

            I must confess that I haven't been there in a few years, but the same guy owns and runs it, so I presume it is still good.
             
            Did you notice "New York Style Ribs" on the menu?  What is that?

              I see it is still the same .....    A number of years ago while in Orlando & Tampa, i tried several restaurants for fresh seafood. I found none of the high volume 'tourist' establishments severed fresh. It was all frozen breaded shrimp & oysters the same that you can buy a any grocery store.   I did not find good fresh fried seafood until I got back to North Florida and south Georgia.     ... I'm sure there are restaurants in south Florida that serve good fresh seafood, but not the high volume 'tourist' traps.
