Man, I love Italian Beef. Especially served as a combo, with Italian Sausage, Beef, and juice both. They should fit into some category here. Chicago is da place to get da sandwiches, but now you can find one close to home by checking out this directory.
There’s a pretty fine one in Portland, Michael’s, and when I said it was “as good as Chicago,”, the owner (who can be kinda uppity), said “it’s better than any in Chicago.”
I like lots of different places in Chicago. I like Al’s.
