This is the best and only place in Elgin to buy Broasted Chicken and Italian Beef. My family always order the chicken for special gatherings. They look forward to this great chicken. You can get coupons too. The beef is always so good. It rivals Portcullis. The staff is so friendly. They always chat and remember me.There are daily specials.... More

Been going for over 20 years and the quality has never waivered. Always clean, friendly and delicious. Beefs have the right amount of juice. Try the combo;the spicy sausage adds the right amount of heat. The freshly made fries are to die for ...perfection

Been going to BV since '74. This is both of my brothers' first stop when visiting Elgin - before me! April 25 ago my brother came in from California, went to BV and then came to see me with the food.

Nice place across from high school. Food decent, prices average, not too high and not cheap, although they do have daily specials. Tuesdays $1.99 dog and fries. I had a decent ham and cheese sandwich, very good ham. I wish they would have cooked it a little more for a harder crisp on whole wheat bread, but it tasted good.

Happened to be in Elgin at conference tennis finals. Used my Trip Advisor App and found this place right across the street. Fabulous Italian Beef. I had hot(sport) peppers she had sweet. One of the best beef sandwiches I've had(and I've had a lot). Great hot crisp skinny fries. Nice people too
