Great Food Debates Through History In Illinois

I would consider Illinois a foodie state. We are very lucky in the Land Of Lincoln because we have so many great chefs, restaurants, and dishes to choose from. For example thin-crust versus deep-dish pizza. Do you put ketchup on a hot dog? How do you like your Italian beef, wet or dry? That's just naming a couple of the famous debates.

It's funny because, from the time I was in high school until just a couple of years ago, I wasn't a big fan of breakfast, except maybe some donuts. I loved breakfast as a kid. I'm not sure what happened there. Then, a couple of years I rediscovered that first meal of the day. Now, it's my favorite.
