Hole in the wall but you will return again and again!

Very small (2 tables inside) but I had read reviews and was ready to eat the best Italian Beef and it was!!!! Busy place lots of locals lots of call in orders from people who know it gets busy at lunch. It is a hole in the wall but what is inside- well it was very very good. It really... read more

The owner is a hoot! He is a Chicago sports fan and the little takeout place is covered with sports stuff. Local takeout that we visit for lunch! Barbaque pork sandwiches and sausage are our go to lunch with sides of beans or potatoe salads. The mild is hot enough for me, but it can get hotter

This was the best food we had on our entire 9 day trip. Cheap and delicious! It only has two tables so you may have to wait or get it to go. The owner was super friendly and gracious to all his customers.

Don't be scared off by the location. This hole-in-the wall restaurant has the most authentic Chicago dogs and Italian beef in the area! I have never had anything on the menu that wasn't delicious. The owner takes your order himself and makes sure that the food is to your liking. He is the real deal-a true Chicago guy! Being a... More

Thank you Internet for helping me find this way off the beaten path gem. I'm originally from Chicago so of course I got the beef and got it wet. It was delicious, every bit as good as any place in the city. Bread was great and there was plenty of well seasoned beef. I also got a cup of Chicago... More

I stopped in today as I was in the area and ordered the Italian Beef w giardiniera for apprx $7. It was piled high w very tender seasoned beef and homemade giardiniera. Good quality bread and wrapped up to go. Enjoyed it at my desk because it was definitely not the kind of sandwich to eat on the road. The... More

Don't expect white table clothes and table side service. This is the kind of place you would drive right past based on outside appearance. But walk through the door and order any of their messy, delicious Chicago hotdogs or Italian beef sandwiches and you'll be very happy you did. My wife and I had dinner here tonight based on the...

My wife and I have tried the chicago dog, italian beef with giardineira, hamburger, fries, and pulled pork and all were just great! The food is always hot and fresh and served with a smile.
