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...

Buona has already provided good burgers and Italian beefs. The menu has extended to other sandwiches and salads while the price remains lower than most casual restaurants. A great place for good fast food.

Had to have a Buona Beef while in Chicago and it was well worth it. Definitely try this one or the Beef & Sausage Combo. There's no need to order anything else.

I had the Italian beef sandwich and a Caesar salad. OK, but nothing to write home about. Restaurant was nearly empty on a Tuesday evening. Staff was not very friendly.
