As a former Chicagoan and staying at the Marriott O'Hare airport hotel, just a short walk across the street and what do you eat? The Famous Nancy's stuffed Pizza or the equally Famous Al's Italian Beef sandwich? At least the Geno's Pizza a block down...More

While attending a meeting in Chicago, we went to Al's. Everything we ordered was really good, but the Beef sandwich was my favorite (I went back the next day for lunch). Menu is big and you can mix and match items.

Great flavor, good amount of meat. Good roll, cheese, peppers. Really good stuff. I am going to discount the fact that I also had a slice of pizza, otherwise the rating would drop – pizza was poor, dough not cooked thru. Stick with the beef,...More

Ordered a Chicago dog and Italian Beef sandwich wet. The tomatoes on the Chicago dog were white and hard. The Italian beef had wet bread with dry overcooked meat. The gravy had no flavor. They have increased their peices. So now you pay a lot...More

Stopped in here during a weekend getaway. The Italian beef was good, but stick to what their known for. The chicken sandwich was very dry and plain.

I bought a Nancy's Groupon in advance of being in town. I thought this was a regular restaurant, with seated table service and a bar. Groupon only mentions Nancy's, but they also sell AL's beef sandwiches. Not that I could use my Groupon to buy...More
