My family and I often go to Buona Beef. A few times I have gone to the restaurant to get the "Game Day" pack to take home. Over the past 6 months the prices jumped from $19.95, then to $21.95. No big deal. When they last raised the price they also cut back on providing pasta with the package. Again,... More

We were born and raised in the Windy City and make sure we have something that says "Chicago" whenever we come back for a visit...ain't nothing like this where we live now. The beef sandwich is about as good as they come; perfect blend of herbs and spices and just the right amount of juice. I get the hot peppers... More

Hi, First time here and heard the beef is good. On the day we went it was so-so. Beef was not all that and I thought they were small. Not a great first inpresion and do not think I will be back.

Went their for lunch with the family and ordered their beef/sausage combo, meatball sandwich and grilled chicken sandwich combos. Everything came out fresh and tasty delivered to our table. There was enough food to take some home. Only improvement would be to get the parmesan chips hot.

Buona Beef has the best beef sandwich I have had in the Chicago area so far. The number 1 with fries is all I need to be satisfied. The beef is so flavorful it doesnt seem like this place would have a drive-thru. Ive been to 2 different locations one in Lombard and one in Oak Brook. Both locations do... More

I think the beef sandwiches here are some of the best in the Chicago area. I always get mine dipped with extra gravy on the side and it is just so flavorful and tasty. I am a lover of beef sandwiches and have been to some of the most highly rated ones and I think Buona beef is up there.... More

Pretty good beef sandwiches. Hamburgers and cheeseburgers also good. Fries are the large kind not my favorite. Overall I would go back.

I ordered a beef and Italian sausage dinner to take home. The order came with green peppers (for few cents extra) and two long loaves of fresh Italian bread. The savory dipping liquid is sealed in a separate container. Throw the beef and the hot liquid in a sauce pan and it's ready to eat in a few minutes. Delicious!... More

We visit this chain during Lent on Fridays because they offer a better than average pepper and egg sandwich on a sub roll. This menu item is definitely worth stopping for if you are in the neighborhood. Our other choice was a harvest type salad with lots of fresh greens, gorgonzola cheese, raspberry vinagrette dressing, apples, and so on. Also... More

Incredible fresh and perfectly seasoned beef sandwiches, soups, burgers, pizza and assorted salads are the result of this hardworking family values type of restaurant thriving with happy employees (a good indication of the care that is essential to quality, by the way) at fair prices! their only rival would be Portillo's but we need friendly competion and I would actually...
