“Chicago's #1 Italian Beef Since 1938”
Very few restaurants have foods with flavors so distinctive and unique that they are featured as one of Esquire magazine’s current picks for best sandwiches in America. Only one, Al’s Beef, offers its customers Chicago’s and America’s #1 Italian beef sandwich, the one and only, the authentic sandwich invented 70 years ago at the now legendary Taylor Street beef stand in Chicago!
Featured on Best Sandwich in America, Man vs. Food, and Food Wars!
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.
