“Great Hot Dogs and More”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

This is our favorite hot dog place. It is an order-at- the- counter- sit down type of place ;it also has drive-thru service.They understand how to make a great Chicago style hot dog (including poppy seed bun and celery salt!). They also have a great Italian beef (even better early in day!), gyros and bratwurst. It is a family run place and “mama” does most of the cooking of homemade soups (we love their split pea and navy bean soups- which unfortunately are rarely available when we visit) and pasta sauces (great!). Recently she started preparing Sicilian style pizza about once a month (watch for it!). They also have a lot of the other fast food fare, including burgers, polish, chicken wings subs etc. We have never had a bad meal here!

“Italian beef”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

My wife and I often stop in for Italian beefs. They are good, but not great. The beefs need more juice, and more hot peppers. One of the old pizza places had the best beefs in town, but they closed last fall. So rather than driving to Ramies in Wheeling, Belle's has the best beefs near by. Fries are good, as are their hot dogs.

“Decent fast food”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

My wife and I stopped here for a quick bite to eat recently. I had the Rib Eye Steak sandwich and fries. The sandwich was pretty good but a bit dry. The fries were good and not oily. She ordered a plain hot dog that she thought tasted like an average hotdog. This is decent place but we will not eat here very often. It is ok once and a while but it is in the fast food category.
