  • Friendly, clean, & inexpensive. Some of the words nobody would use to describe this place. Fries are soggy & gross. Also, no restrooms so enjoy having hands that smell like beef for a while.
  • Had better and cheaper
  • Won't lie, I've had better :-/
  • Standing room only.If your looking for a place to sit. the only ones are outside at the picnic table.
  • Just devoured their beef sandwich with peppers. Amazing
  • Delicious and juicy, get the beef dipped and do the 'Italian Stance'.
  • Here's a tip: go down the street to LuLu's and get a real beef! Had to try it,and its way overpriced and overhyped. Portillos,Mr Beef,LuLus are all way better!!!!
  • If you didnt bring cash, no sweat they have an atm located inside the restaurant.
  • This is the original location, my favorite Italian beef in the city. Get it dipped and bring cash. I like to use the juice to dip my fries, heavenly deliciousness.
  • Get it Ditka's way... Dipped with hot and sweet peppers!!!!
  • Classic Italian beef and peppers sandwich, dipped of course.
  • Its not a Italian beef unless you get it dipped. If you don't like it soggy ask for a light dip if you like it soggy just ask for it dipped. This Al's dosent skimp on the dip.
  • The beef recepies at all the different Al's is different. This location is the origonal and is the best.
  • The fries are soggy be design. Even if you order them "fried hard" they will still be soggy and overcooked.
