Rusty and I stopped in for a beer at the local pub in Downtown Chicago near our hotel for a second time. Both times were early in the day. There were a few people drinking at 11am.
I ordered the Italian Beef Sandwich that I noticed advertised everywhere in Chicago. Never heard of it before. The sandwich is like a cross between a French Dipped Sandwich and a Philly Cheesesteak.Â The lady pulled out the sliced beef from a pot sitting on the grill, juices dripping …which made the bread nice and soft. Awesome flavor.
This was seriously the best thing I ate in Chicago …and I don’t think this bar is exactly known for their food. The sandwich with fries and a beer came out to $7 – special of the day.Â Someone seriously needs to bring the Italian Beef to NYC.

agreed! Italian beef is one of the things I miss the most about Chicago. You can find it sometimes here (I’ve had it a Vito’s in Hoboken), but they call it different things like italian pot roast.
