Chicago plays dirty

Primantis or Luckys?

I’m watching Man v. Food right now, and it is a repeat (I remember the segment about Chicago deep dish pizza), but I don’t think I’ve ever watched the last segment before.

The host has to eat three overstuffed sandwiches in an hour, and while the sandwiches seem to be bigger than Primanti’s, there are a couple other differences, mainly the bread (Lucky uses French bread).  Update: He ate all three in about half an hour and won the challenge

I took a look at Lucky’s website and here is what they say:

Lucky’s is Chicago’s home of the overstuffed sandwich. This style of sandwich can be found in Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Florida and Maryland.

Maybe imitation is the best form of flattery, but we’ll still claim home to the original.  Speaking of, I had Primanti’s yesterday due to their special with Destinta (take in a ticket stub, get a discount on a sandwich and a drink) and once again have to recommend the General Tso’s wings.
