Quick lunch

Good quick service. Italian beef very good along with the chicken fingers/tenders. My wife is very particular about the fries. She was very pleased with these. Not crinkle fries or home fries with skin. They have very limited seating inside and a few seats outside. Getting ketchup and napkins... read more

Perhaps management changed recently because I don't really understand the good reviews. We just moved to the area and thought we would give this place a try. I ordered a beef sandwich and a hamburger for the kids. My wife was so disgusted by the uncleanliness of the restaurant she decided not to order anything. She was smart for doing... More

One of the few really good local beef and gyros type places, they make a pretty good dog. While they do have an annoying way of nickel and diming, (extra for sauce for the gyros, extra for refills of soft drinks, extra for peppers, etc.) the end result is still a good deal. Much better than Portillo's, and way less... More

I wanted a Hot Dog and stopped here and met someone in line who said the Spicy Italian Sausage was great and on the sign it even said "Spicy". I had them throw on hot and sweet peppers and it was loaded and really tasty. I also had a Hot Dog with the works and that too was loaded and... More

I stopped in later in the evening after one of my kids sports events. We ordered some hotdogs, a couple sub sandwiches, and a pizza puff. The lady at the counter wasn't the friendliest. The food was prepared quickly. And it was pretty standard hot dog stand food. Nothing really to complain about but nothing to rave about either.

A little chilly when we walked in, but the service was fast and the food was hot and the best food I had tasted from a fast food place. I also like the fact they don't just serve burgers and hot dogs. Gyros, chicken nuggets, chicken sandwiches, even ice cream!

Italian beef, gyros and dogs. All great and good value. It's been around for over 40 years for a reason. I'll... More

I live in Florida but when I return to my Illinois hometown I visit Flips. It has THE BEST hot dogs, sausage, Italian beef, and so much more. It's really not a fine dining restaurant but well worth the stop. I will be back!

A traditional hot dog/Gyros/beef diner-style joint. Great gyros. Loaded with meat. Gyros salad dinner is so much food its ridiculous. Large menu. The Italian Beef is tasty. The do not over salt! The dogs are genuine Chicago Vienna Beef hotdogs. They also have outside dining when the weather cooperates but you are sitting on Roosevelt Road, a major thorough fare.... More

Great gyros. Loaded with meat. Gyros salad is a great alternative. Fries are the thick cut and cooked to perfection.
