If you're in Chicago, you need to get an Italian beef sandwich. This is definitely one of the city's best (although I like Mr. Beef too). Don't expect a huge menu or anything fancy-- make sure to get it totally dipped in the au jus. It ain't pretty, but it's delicious.

I will fight you if you don't think this is the best Italian beef in the city.

Al's is fine I guess, but come on, it's way overrated. If you REALLY want the world's greatest Italian Beef sandwich, go to Johnnie's in Elmwood Park.
