I love BBQ and Chicago doesn't overall do great BBQ but there's a handful of legit places out there. One just opened a few months ago actually.

Have you been to Los Angeles and visited the multiple parts of the city where you can get different ethnic foods? If your answer is no, that's the reason you're not understanding.

You can say the same about Chicago, but I'd personally put the two cities almost even on variety. MAYBE LA ahead by a little bit but not a lot.

I won't lie and pretend I have although I have family friends out there who love the weather and nature but desperately miss the food. On a interesting note LA doesn't crack the top ten best cities for foodies (not that its a 100% tell poll)

Chicago definitely beats LA when it comes to food - and the residents have the waistlines to show it.

Treading a thin line with that ignorant comment.

The person I was replying to is from Chicago, though.

I think it's an old stereotype though there's still loads of fat people but you can find that in a lot of cities. The wealthier neighborhoods tend to have fitter people anyway. Most people I know who live there don't enjoy the really bad for you food more than a few times per year really.
