Food is great but more Importantly, they treat you like family (I mean that in a good way). Nice varied menu for all, fast enough for quick meals (unless they're extra busy, which is often) but worth any wait because of the great friendly service....More

We happened across this fast food option and so glad that we did! THey offered the perfect choices for our car full of picky people! I loved their Chicago style hot dog and the kids loved their choices. Great food and good price!

Very good for a fast food place. Dine in, drive through, carry out, it's very convenient. Delicious beef sandwiches, individual pizzas, chili, soup and salads.

I went here for lunch and it was busy. The food was great, recommend the combo meal and chips. Everyone at the table liked their meals beef, salads, grilled chicken, and brownie dessert.

If you are a Buona Beef fan this meets the requirement. There is no menu above the cash register so it is awkward to carry around a menu board. The food will be brought to your table. But not always exactly as ordered. I have...More

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.
