At this local classic the Italian beef sandwiches come with long, spongy white buns that begin dribbling (that’s a good thing!) after a load of the spicy meat and cooking juices has been ladled on. In a recent episode of the Travel Channel’s Food Wars, Mr Beef won as Chicago’s best beef hands down over its main competitor, Al’s.

Don’t be afraid of the dumpy decor. Eaters from Jerry Springer to Jay Leno have devoured at the picnic-style tables. Cash only.
