Chicago eatery accused of offending people

Ghetto Fries are a concoction that is sold at an Italian Beef stand on the north side of Chicago, and as you can imagine, some people are upset with the owners of the restaurant.

The fries are thinly sliced, fried potatoes smothered in Italian beef gravy, Bar-B-Que sauce, onions, cheddar cheese, and hot peppers.

Some customers at Max's Famous Italian Beef at 5754 N. Western Ave. raise their eyebrows at the name.

The owner says the fries were named after the employee who came up with the combination. He says it was the employee's nickname, and it was done in fun.

I dunno.

I'd be willing to try 'em. They don't sound like they'd be good with my diet though.

As for the PC folks? The heck with 'em!

Doesn't sound too appetizing, but the name doesn't bother me at all.
