Foursquare Tips

  • Try one of the dipped beef sandwiches - they've been a Chicago staple for 70 years. As seen on Man v Food: Chicago.
  • Get your beef dipped and stock up on napkins, it's about to be a messy and delicious ride
  • Make sure you get your beef dipped!
  • Blue cheese fries all the way!
  • It doesn't get messier, meatier or cheaper than a four-inch Little Al Italian Beef. $4.50, plus 50 cents for giardiniera.
  • Italian Beef Sandwich
  • For an authentic and delicious Italian beef sandwich, this place cant be beat. This spot has earned awards over the decades. 6-inch beef sandwiches are $5.50 or a Little Al (four-inch) for $4.50.
  • It's not really Chicago style if the hot dog doesn't come w a pickle.
  • Amazing!!!
  • Get the Italian sausage and beef combo, food coma the rest of the day.
  • Great chopped salad!
  • Best Cheese Fries in the city
  • Slow service the workers were having fun with each other rather than taking care of the customers
  • True to it's reputation, this spot is incredible. The best Italian beef I've ever had, absolutely get it dipped, finger licking deliciousness! The left over juice is perfect for fry dipping too =).
  • Goto go and have them dip your sandwich
  • My lunch/dinner of choice: 4" Italian beef with provolone dipped and the loaded cheese fries. YUM.
  • Also serving Italian Ice now. Try the lemon flavor. Delicious!
  • WE DELIVER AND CATER 7 DAYS A WEEK! (312) 559-2333
  • I would go for the Chicago Dog over the Italian beef. Not that the beef is bad, I just like the dogs a bit better. And they come with just enough fries to leave you full and happy.
  • Sorry I wasn't impressed with the beef. Hot dogs were good. Fries outstanding but overall I would pass this up.
