Martino's is all about dogs. For years you couldn't find a decent Chicago Style Hot Dog in Milwaukee and when Martino's opened up they taught Milwaukeeans a little bit about food! We haven't been here in a few years and when we were back in town again I just couldn't resist the appeal of a good Chicago Style dog. My... More

Fun to visit. The Chicago Dogs were really good. My husband had the Italian Beef sandwich and said it was OK. The french fries were awesome. Friendly staff. Lots of locals eating lunch here.

This is one of the best Chicago Dogs you will find in Milwaukee, I have tried the rest but this is the best. They have a great menu with Italian beef and serve a good Friday Fish Fry. Enjoy.

I have not been to Martino's in a while and tonight I found out why.. It has become more expensive and that is fine as long as quality, portions and taste are there. Very disappointed on my Italian beef which had to be corrected twice before they almost got it right. My order was "Italian beef with mozzarella dip.." I... More

I've been to Al's and Portillo's for Italian Beef sandwiches in Chicago. Both of them are good. But I have to say that Martino's beats them. Yes the best Italian Beef sandwich. So every time I drive from the Twin Cities to Chicago, I plan on going through Milwaukee and stopping in for a sandwich. Also I had the chilli... More

We stopped in here to grab lunch. My boyfriend is a huge fan of Italian sandwiches and wanted to try what this place had to offer. Its got all the stuff that you could think to order from an Italian beef place. While the food wasn't out of this world, it was definitely worth the stop and the pricing wasn't... More

If you like hotdogs, like REAL hotdogs then you should visit this place for sure. They have traditional Chicago style hotdogs, footlongs, chili dogs, all that good stuff. They have other things on the menu of course but my wife really wanted a hot dog one day and we heard they had good ones. From the pictures on the wall,... More

Chicago is not the only place you can get a great hot dog or a fantastic Italian Beef. Martinos has been the place to go in Milwaukee for classic Chicago style hot dogs and Italian Beef sandwiches. The menu of greatness does not stop there. So go...you won't be disappointed.

I was in town on business and remember seeing this place on a food show. I went for lunch and WOW the Italian beef was beyond excellent. The beef was tender and had GREAT flavor. The roll was classic homemade Italian. I ordered the first one dry. I had to return my second day to try one "dipped" one. I... More
