CLOSED: Boston Blackie'sArlington Heights
Sure, you could grab a boneless barbecued pork loin sandwich or charbroiled hot dog at this spot, but why? We say skip 'em: This joint's proud of it's burgers--and for good reason; They're half-pound monsters. Try the Blackie Burger topped with grilled onions and tons of bacon strips.
There's also a Carson's Express tucked inside, which offers carryout ribs, slaw, and au gratin potatoes from Carson's the Place for Ribs (the same family is involved with both eateries).
