Joey's Shrimp House (address and info)
Much like the Italian beef, the jibarito is a Chicago-created sandwich that was inspired by a foreign land -- in this case, Puerto Rico -- whose residents might be heard to say “huh?!” if you ordered it. Basically, it’s a sandwich made with fried plantains, which can be filled with everything from lechon to gyro meat. Well, Joey’s does it with shrimp, and it might just be the best of all of them, especially now that the original Borinquen is no longer with us.

Franklin BBQ (address and info)
Yeah, you'll wait in line. A long line. Yeah, it'll be worth it. And while some people will argue that the meats at Franklin needn't be bogged down with sandwich fixins, this sucker comes with chopped brisket, smoked sausage, and slaw. It's big enough to feed two. But you waited in line for a long time, so you're advised to get this as a side order with a mound of brisket.
