    If Abe Lincoln were alive today, and still hanging out in Springfield, IL he certainly would be a regular at D'Arcy's Pint feasting on a sandwich that has made D'arcy's famous, the Horseshoe Sandwich.

    D'Arcy's famous shoes, as they are known to the regulars, are incredible sandwiches that feature a choice of meat or veggies, served over Texas toast, piled high with fries and topped with an unforgettable homemade cheese sauce. Sound simple?

    Korean food is definitely becoming more popular in all parts of the country, almost a trend! Chicago has a special Korean treat from Bill Kim's Belly Shack, nothing at all like New York's Shake Shack!

    Chicago's Belly Shack has an extremely unique menu, including a small assortment as what they refer to as "sammich's". Check out there web site for their complete menu. Also take a look at their photos section for some incredible food photography.

    Jeff Rapp of the "I Like To Eat" blog recently visited Belly Shack and reports in:

    Wow my belly is full of interesting and complex flavors after my pilgrimage to Bill Kim's latest spot. I don't know too many chefs out there that can make you ponder how each bite was constructed yet be so compelled to keep going until there's nothing left. The menu only has a few options but I don't think that's a detractor. Having only ordered the meatball sandwich and the lemongrass chicken (there were two of us), I would be tempted to return to explore.

    With all the talk about Lebron James we were wondering what else is a Cleveland original. Sure, there is the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, sports teams that haven't won a championship in almost forever, cold and snowy winters, and a city stuck between New York and Chicago.




    One thing is for sure, Cleveland also has the championship winning corned beef sandwich. With all the famous deli's in New York and Los Angeles many are surprised to learn that a little deli with an unappetizing sounding name has the best corned beef in America. ...

    Anyone who ever grew up with a doting mom sure knows how a great grilled cheese sandwich (and maybe a bowl of tomato soup) is a great comfort food.

    While Melt has a traditional grilled cheese sandwich (that is also phenomenal) the real star of the show is how Melt manages to meld together a bunch of ingredients (including cheese) into an outstanding sandwich. I guess you could say Melt melds!


    Usually on my first visit I would go with the traditional sandwich, a basic grilled cheese, however I decided to be adventorous and went with the Summer Chicken sandwich. This sandwich features two thick slices of fresh bread, grilled (with butter) to perfection, and then filled with grilled chicken, lettuce, tomato, havarti cheese and a roasted garlic herb dressing. True to the name this Melt sure melded together these ingredients in a warm, toasty and extremely satisfying sandwich.

    Near the intersection of Chicago Ave., Ogden Ave., and Milwaukee Ave. lies The Silver Palm, a restaurant located in the inside of a 1947 railroad Budd dining car. The Silver Palm has an eclectic menu, it is not a traditional sandwich restaurant. They serve Duckling, Strip Steak, Shrimp, Ribs, Calamari and of course....

    Ok, Ok, I don't know what it is about Michigan and pork, but here's another place that is using up their fair share of swine!

    Tony's I-75 Restaurant in Birch Run, MI (between Flint and Saginaw) is a great little diner that serves up huge portions, including the item that made them famous... the Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato sandwich.

    What makes this BLT so special? Is it the two thick slices of Italian bread that it is served on? Is it the two measly slices of tomato? Is it the single leaf of iceberg lettuce? Is it the mayo sauce? NO! It's the ONE POUND of bacon! Pretty tasty! And, hey, if you aren't scared off by this huge BLT make sure you save room for dessert, their ice cream sundaes start off with 1/2 gallon of ice cream!!! I suppose if you asked, they would make you an ice cream sundae with bacon on top!!!

    Ok, can you figure out the specialty of the house??? You guessed it HAM! Everything at Mike's tastes better with a side of ham. In addition, Mike makes a heck of a ham sandwich. Once you place your order (and not a moment sooner) the tender ham is sliced off the bone nice and thick and piled high on rye or a seeded roll. Your options include swiss cheese (of course), mustard and pickles.
