CHICAGO — Traffic on the Kennedy Expy. gets so bad, some Chicagoans stock their car with rations and others quit their jobs.

In this edition of "Chicago, Reviewed," a series in which we look at bizarre Yelp reviews of public places, we look at drivers' feelings about the 18-mile freeway from the West Loop to O'Hare.

The John F. Kennedy Expressway gets two out of five stars, based on 22 reviews:

All reviews are credited to Yelp, and may be partial.

Great question! Let's see what your fellow Yelpers have to say.

Off to a great start!


This seems...dramatic.


Traffic-hangry is the most universal of emotions, across all languages and cultures, and all space and time.

Even in glowing reviews of the Kennedy, it only gets two stars.

I want to make fun of "second floor" but I don't even know what it means. Maybe stop taking so many photos while driving 65+ miles per hour?

Don't F with moose, either, though.

Have we finally found it? An answer to Dave S.'s question? If it gets you where you're going, it worked, right? Four stars!

Or maybe this is the answer. The expressway gets you there and back, but it's the journey — the terrible, terrible, two-star journey — and not the destination, right?
