Description: Buona is a quick casual restaurant chain that features Original Italian Beef, Pizza, Burgers, Hot Dogs, Sandwiches and Salads. The first Buona restaurant was established in Berwyn, IL in 1981, by Buonavolanto Patriarch Joe Buonavolanto, Sr. He was among the group of Italian Americans who perfected Chicago's original Italian beef. The menu is a blend of old-school Chicago classics and next-generation menu choices - made from scratch with fresh ingredients. While the menu has expanded, the original beef recipe has not been compromised - for the three generations of Buonavolantos who are active in the company, compromise and quality are never uttered in the same breath.

Reviewed February 4, 2013

This was first time I had been to Bunoa Beef and it was very good! Such a great menu, I had a hard time deciding on what to order! I ended up with a Margherita pizza. Everyone else had sandwiches and said they were great!
I also liked the fact that they had beer and wine!

Service was great and the employees were very friendly!

“YUM!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Beef sandwiches are the best around....without all the hustle and bustle of Portillo's (which is always a fun lunch) the service, location ....right off 88 and Naperville Road...and the food is always a sure thing!

“Italian Beef to Savor”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We love Buona. We eat in and cater at home. The Italian Beef is of excellent quality with great flavor. If you are craving 'Italian Beef', you will not be disappointed.

“Best Italian beef around.”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Buona beef is totally out of this world. Recently we have tried the other menu selections and OMG they are great!. We have utilized their catering which is great. We have utilized the on line ordering which is extremely convenient to order and pick up on the way home.
