“Big Beef Combo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Dipped beef sandwich/hot dog, with hot peppers. Try it, you will not regret it! Well worth the 20 minute drive.

“Chocolate Cake and Cheese Fries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

I love cheeseburgers and this one added up! Super juicy. We got it to go and my bottom bun was soggy.

Cheese dies were good. Liquid cheese for dipping.

Chocolate cake was very rich and delicious.

Expensive for fast food.

“Terrific Chicago cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

The place is loud, large and raucous. You order at any of a number of stations and wait for your number to be called. That part we didn't find very enjoyable. The food though was tremendous. The Chicago style hot dog was as good as it gets. The Italian Beef was delicious, with lean and tender meat on a tasty roll. Memorable Chicago specialties without having to go there.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

All I really have to say is Yum! What a wonderful find on a business trip to the LA area. Was referred by a co-worker having experienced the food during a Chicago trip. Was overwhelmed by how good everything on the menu sounded. Could not make up my mind. Decided to go with the Italian Sausage to start. Was not disappointed. Definitely worth more than one trip.
