Al’s Italian Beef, Chicago IL

December 2012

My uncle JD is a life long Chicagoan and gave us a tour of Chicago a few years ago and for lunch one day he took us all to famous Al’s #1 Italian Beef.


Stepping inside was like stepping back in time where the ambiance and food is exactly the same as it has been for the past 25+ years. Their specialty is their roast beef dipped sandwich, they also sell Chicago hot dogs and tamales and a few other items. I had to try a little bit of it all.


Everything here is classic and tasty. Don’t plan to sit down, though, there are no chairs and tables here, just a counter to lean on, but its fun.

Al’s #1 Italian Beef is located at 601 W Adams St. • Chicago, IL  Phone (312) 559-2333
