A friend told us we must go try the Italian Beef and the Chicago Dog. So, we found this place through the road construction and gave it a try. The Chicago Dog comes with french fries (lots of them). It was tasty and good. The italian beef was good, but nothing to rave about. This was about the only place... More

I hate having to write this because I have enjoyed Luke's on Alvernon for years. I started going in 1993 and I enjoyed eating JUST the Italian beef sandwiches. I ordered fries one time, but I didn't like them and haven't had them since. My wife was craving a Chicago hot dog (dog) from Luke's and I never had one... More

The amount of meat and the flavor of the flavor combined with that all important price makes this a place to stop and eat

If you are in Tucson and do not go to Luke's on Alvernon you will miss out on the best Italian Beef sandwich ever created. Get it with the hot peppers and enjoy.

For those of you who don't know yet, the Thornydale location is under new ownership and boy does it show! Clean floors, clean booths, the same excellent food and great new owners, David and Vicki. The new owners told me they take pride in offering the same sandwhiches and the best french fries in town that have made Luke's famous... More
