Al's Italian Beef Restaurant Review

: This beef stand is a bastion of Chicago's Little Italy (and beyond, since there are many offshoots). The beef is roasted on site and sliced super-thin; then, it's heaped onto soft bread. Order your beef with hot and/or sweet peppers and/or dipped (aka, dunked in the beef juice), or as a combo with Italian sausage stuffed into the mix.
