It certainly is, now that Gov. Blow-dry refuses to grace Springfield with his presence!

Sorry Anon Nurse. You are referring to the "traditional", delicious meaning of tenderloin.

We are referring to a bad cut of pork, hammered to 1/4 inch thickness and the size of a dinner plate, breaded, deep fried to golden perfection, and eaten on a bun with dill pickle. Some of the best junk food you'll ever have, and you'll be full for days afterward! Try "R Place Restaurant" in Morris, or stop in Frank Polancic's Butcher Shop in Ottawa for frozen tenderloins to take home.

I've probably grossed you out.

Love R Place Resaurant. Go there just about once a month. But no one can beat Syl's restaurant in Rockdale.:lol2:

Back down Memory Lane. When I lived in Shorewood, a group of neighbor ladies would go out to dinner once a month or so. One woman picked Syl's whenever it was her turn to make reservations. She probably had the hots for the bartender.

I just spent the last 4 years near Chicago in the suburb of Naperville, going to college at Benedictine University (located in the next suburb of Lisle). My roommate and I, who by the way is from the West Side of Chicago, would get into discussions and arguments about these exact same things (particularly the discussion on pop). I thought this post was absolutely hilarious and true to a T. She's exactly the way you describe in your post. I'll pass this on to her, I'll know she'll enjoy this. By the way, love your city, think its fabulous and I plan to return as soon as I graduate from nursing school.

OOH, I'd love that!

You know, I remember Maciano's as being a pretty good local pizza, but now that I've been pizza-deprived for over a year, I've built it up to be a gourmet delicacy in my mind. I hope it's not a let-down when I finally sink my teeth into a slice in July. Want to join me?

Does any one live or go to school in central IL...U of I, ISU, or Wesleyan? Does Garcia's Pizza still exist? It was to-die-for back in the early '80's. (I've just dated myself :) I wonder if it is still that good, or just a fond memory.

OK, enough pizza talk!

Garcia's Pizza is still doing well in both Champaign and Urbana. I actually met my husband online from answering a question just like this one about missing Garcia's pizza. He had gone to college here and missed the pizza so badly, I kinda felt "sorry" for him and helped co-ordinate getting a Garcia's pizza to him in Kentucky. I guess he liked it, because it wasn't too long before he moved back here and he and I got married! SO, yeah, I guess Garcia's is still that good.

The recomended method for shipping a Garcia's pizza is to have Garcia's bake it half-way, then pack it in dry ice, ship via the quickest next-day service, and cook it the rest of the way upon arrival. These were the instructions given to me by the owner of Garcia's in Champaign.

He says he gets many requests for pizzas from people who went to college here and recall it fondly.

;) Hi, I've lived most of my life in Illinois, but have been to Chicago area only 2-3 times many years ago. Springfield is "up North". Did y'all know we can pick a Chicagoan any time? You don't talk like we do down here. :lol2: Is there no one else on here South of Springfield?
