“Best Italian beef ever”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Every time in Chicago a must-go place! Italian beef sandwiches with sweet peppers are the best. Juicy in soft hoagie roll it melts in your mouth. Go out of your way to this place. Just west of Michigan Avenue shopping.

“Italian beef”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

The Italian beef with hot peppers is so juicy, tender and tasty. I'm so glad there isn't one close to my home, I'd go there every week!

“Really good Italian beef sandwiches”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at our hotel. He told us to ask for the beef sandwich "dipped", which was not noted on the menu. It was absolutely delicious! Very tender beef, cheese and gravy. Being from the Philadelphia area, we are picky about our steak sandwiches. I would highly recommend giving it a try. The onion rings are pretty tasty too. The interior of the place is fun and quirky. The staff was very friendly and really seemed to enjoy their jobs. Not a fancy place...you order at the counter and wait for them to call your number, but all in all, a great sandwich and reasonable prices. Will definitely go back the next time I go to Chicago.
