Carries Vienna Beef hot dogs with good condiments. They've gone to a smaller size hot dog which seems too small for the bun so I order a double dog which is a little pricey. Included fries come with the brothers own salt mixture which makes them special. If not busy they will make the fries extra crispy for me.

This restaurant is awesome. The food is delicious. Make sure to get the "combo". It's italian beef and sausage and is the best. The chili cheese dog is good as well. French fries are better than 5 guys. The customer service was very personable. There isnt much space to sit down to eat but get it to go if you... More

Maxwells beef is hidden away in the corner of a dingy strip mall east of 355 on 63rd st. I stumbled on it a few years ago when I was looking for a quick lunch on the go. I walked in expecting to order a beef sandwich when. Saw the cook smashing fresh beef on the grill into burgers. This... More

While not quite an A+, it is definitely a B+. The beef here is solid, with good gravy and peppers. Lean meat, flavorful, and fresh bread. Can't ask for more in terms of the food. Only stools and a counter where to eat.
