Yelp reviews: Chicago`s MCC ranked number 3 prison

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) – users often visit the helpful website to find the best places to woo a romantic interest or guzzle a pint or two with friends on a Friday night. Now, restaurant recommendations and business reviews have expanded into some wackier things—like prisons, planets, and celebrities.

That’s right. If you’ve been hunting relentlessly for the top rated prison in your neighborhood, your search is over. A shocking number of lockups have acquired Yelp ratings, with comments ranging from food and cleanliness to culture and style (points for nice courtyard gardening, anyone?).

At Twin Towers Correctional Facility, you can eat PBJ all day – or check out Elwood Correctional Facility if cheese sandwiches are your thing. You “can’t beat the fake koolaid,” one user claims.

Looking for the perfect place some holiday pounds? San Mateo County Jail is for you. Nick G. writes, “you can lose weight fast there with a little working out.” On the downside though, it’s “a chickless deal,” so save your washboard abs and chiseled arms for your release date.

Coming in at number three with an average rating of 3.5 stars, is Chicago’s own Metropolitan Correctional Center, just behind the West Hollywood Jail and Sing Sing Correctional Facility in New York.

One reviewer praises the natural light of MCC, pointing out that the “tall triangular concrete structure has thin vertical windows that are five inches wide to allow for natural light for prisoners, without allowing them to slip out.”

Or not.

Ironically, five inches–along with some bed sheets and sheer determination–was just enough for two bank robbers to scale down the 27-story downtown slammer and escape just a few months ago.

Yelp isn’t the only social media site to feature prisons. You can also check-in on FourSquare to see which correctional facilities your friends may be hanging out at as well.
