Ever since Portillo's transferred hands, their quality has tanked (over all the locations I've been to from Palatine to Schaumburg). So where to go for a hot dog or Italian beef? Here! Generous helpings, good beef (not that tough-like-boot-leather than Portillos has been pushing since the sale), nice fries and genuine tamales. They're fast and efficient. Prices are reasonable, too.

Italian Beef is my favorite Chicago food. This is the best place to eat it. The beef is not over cooked and the bread is perfect and the juicyness is just what you want if you are an Italian Beef junkie like me.

A standout place in area filled with Italian Beef options. Large sandwiches, plenty of quality beef, excellent peppers. Good pizza by the slice as well. Very clean. Friendly service. Worth a trip whenever in the area.

Service and cleanliness was excellent. Food was excellent. If you are getting a special meal deal or a side bag fries, keep in mind that it is a LOT of fries. Easily 3x the size of a typical large fries from other fast food restaurants.

Perfect filling combo, plus the option of cheese for your fries ! Good price and includes a drink! The fries are sharing size. The sausage on their pizza is full of flavor and the size of the slice is perfect !

Their I-Beef ranks among the best of the best in Chicago. And get a I-Lemonde too. You'll love their specials, prices roomy dinig room, and free parking!

My family and I went here looking for an original Italian Beef sandwich, not so much. Restaurant was huge and clean. Staff was unfriendly. Prices very high for the quality of food. Portions were large. In this case, bigger wasn't better.
