    I don't get why so many people like Maid-Rite. Personally, they are way overpriced for what you get.

    Not a fan really but if it catches on with the DePaul students, then they gotta real shot at success.

    But will they serve ketchup? If they do, Marshalltowners will murder the staff in their sleep.

    Cyclone pictures included in the decor. Owner is a Bama alum so recognizes and appreciates the significance of last years win vs the Cowboys. Great food and hoping this is a big success.

    The one in marshalltown should be the model. We have one in Johnston and it's totally different (not in a good way). The circular counter, the customer service, the small town feel, etc.

    What is it with people not allowing you to eat a sandwich how you might like it? Probably won't allow kethcup here in Chicago with the Maid Rite either, if that's tradition. There are a couple hot dog places that don't serve ketchup because you aren't supposed to eat ketchup on a hot dog. It's a hot dog, or a meat sandwitch, we aren't talking dry aged prime beef here, which, imho, if you pay $40 for a steak, you should be able to eat it however the **** you want as well.

    I understand the whole "True flavor" thing, but seriously, if you like ketchup, you should be able to eat it.

    I'm not going to defend the pizza, deep dish is bad.

    All I know is that article excerpt with the menu in it literally made my mouth water.

    With pizza - just like with women - variety is the spice of life.

    Luckily with pizza I'm not tied down to just one.

    Chicago Dogs may not have ketchup on them, mine do. I like ketchup on a Hot Dog, it tastes better.

    the funniest part of that whole argument is the hot dog itself. Almost everyone in Chicago serves a beef hot dog. Real hot dogs aren't beef they are pork.

    Count me as another who thinks Maid Rite is vastly overrated.

    All loose meat sandwiches need to be sloppy, the sloppier the better.
