First time enjoyer of this drive-thru Chicago area staple. We were hungry late on a Saturday night, so Lady Friend suggested we feed our inner carnivores and enjoy an Italian beef sammich. We each had Regular size, for $5.99, with sweet peppers for an additional...More

I like that they serve slices of pizza (when I'm hungry for only one piece). The cheesy italian beef sandwich is even better when you add bacon to it. I've always had tasty meals here. It is handy for take-out to bring meals home for...More

Food is ok but order takers have difficulty in getting orders right. Waited almost 10 minutes as my order for two slices of pizza got lost when the order takers fill the order. No apology just pushed slices toward me after I asked where my...More

I'm sorry that there were some issues with your order, Fred, and I'm disappointed if anyone came across as unfriendly or inattentive. Please know that's not the norm here, so I hope you'll give us another shot! Thanks, Rich R, Co-Owner

Mr Beef is OK, not great, but not bad either. Nice people working here. Wish they would just up their game with food quality. Nothing really stands out. Maybe they just need some fresh vision.More

This counter-service restaurant serves good quality food. They are efficient and friendly. The deep-dish pizza special yesterday was very good as was the chicken Parmesan dinner. The prices are low. I stop regularly there.

A good restaurant to go to, especially with younger children. The decor is late 50's and there is plenty of seating for larger groups, including at least two party rooms or areas. I love pan and deep dish pizza and Mr. Beef has regular pizza...More

Edit In 1980, armed with the original Mr. Beef on Orleans secret Italian beef recipe, Lou Bosco's dream of becoming a restaurant owner became a reality. An Italian immigrant who understood the importance of hard work and dedication, Lou began his successful journey. The first Mr. Beef & Pizza opened in Arlington Heights, with locations in Park Ridge and Mount Prospect to follow. A family run business, Lou's legacy continues with his daughters and son-in-laws running day to day operations. True to his Italian roots, the importance of family shines through at Mr. Beef & Pizza. We take the time to get to know our guests personally and treat them as part of the family. It shows in the quality of our food and the friendliness of our employees. Mr. Beef & Pizza is the place where "Food, Family & Fun" are always on the menu.
