The folks behind popular Chicago restaurant review show Check, Please!, just released a video teaser for a show they taped in August 2001 with then state senator Barack Obama. He talks about visiting the Dixie Kitchen, where 3 or 4 pancakes are "pretty dangerous," he says because they'll give you a food coma. "I've learned from some past mistakes that I have to be cautious." He also says he prefers simple food that tastes good—and is a good value—to fancy-pants settings. The full episode will air Friday January 16. The video, after the jump.
