Being a Bowling Green alum and not a Michigan alum I am only familiar with the original restaurant in BG, but I was thrilled to death with the Mr Spots reference. I worked right across the street from them in BG and their hoagies and Chiptole burritos were probably 50% of my diet in college. Their waffle fries are absolutely divine. I still get a hankering for Spots about once a week but there's nothing like it that I've found in Chicago.
