Nice visuals for those unfamiliar with the Italian Beef genre.  But you and I both know; even though Al's is Chicago's most famous Italian Beef purveyor, they are not the best.  Most locals agree, Johnnie's holds that title.  The problem is that the quality of Johnnie's Fries (sorta back on topic again) doesn't match the Beef or Sausage Sandwiches.  They're serving a frozen, crinkle-cut Sysco product while many other top tier places (including Al's and Bob-O's) are doing a fresh, hand-cut Fry.
 
That makes Bob-O's an easy choice when giving out-of-towners the Chicago Food Tour.

I agree. Johnnie's is my favorite IB. Ore-Ida's frozen shoestrings have been on their menu for years. However, their Italian ice makes up for their fries. I'm accustomed to having an Italian ice with their beef sandwich, so fries are not necessary.

Ah, but Bob-O's serves Italian Ice (in season) as well.  Trifecta to Bob-O's; great Italian Beef, outstanding fresh hand-cut Fries, and Italian Ice all under one roof.  Oh yeah, with plenty of indoor counter space to sit and enjoy your food.  How's that Johnnie's IB workin' for you, sitting outside in the dead of winter?
 
Again, I happily concede Johnnie's as the Best Italian Beef in town, but they don't necessarily follow through on the rest of the menu.

I never eat out side at Johnnie's in the winter. I eat inside and stand at the end of the counter near the exit, taking the traditional "bend over" stance, which is the true, correct way to eat an Italian beef in Chicago. Johnnie's is all about the "experience." You don't get that experience sitting down.

If you're going to make reference to the proper "Italian Beef Stance", at least provide a visual for those unfamiliar with the concept.

I hear that some recently discovered Carl Sandburg writings extol Chicago not only as "City of the Big Shoulders" but also as the "City of the Sloppily Incompetent Mouthgorgers".
 
But I could be wrong.

Nice.  Motion, sound, in color even.  Just like Hollywood.

No, you're right.  It's a point of pride in fact.  OTOH, we don't squeak when we eat like you Dairy Land Cheese Curd Chompers.

There's a burger, hot dog, & custard chain called Freddy's that has fry sauce, fry seasoning and a jalapeno fry sauce available at their restaurants. They also sell take home versions.  Their fries are shoestring style and their restaurant menu has regular, cheese and chili cheese versions. They also offer fried cheese curds.
 
For some reason, the jalapeno sauce is shown but does not appear you can order it. (Well, they fixed that!)

When I went to the Philippines there's this really popular french fries shop there where they would sprinkle powder on top of their fries. The choices are: Garlic, Cheese, Barbecue, and Ranch. It was the best flavored fries I have ever tasted.
