“Great deal...healthy fast choices and they have beer and wine!!”
Review of Buona Beef

Buona Beef
Ranked #50 of 199 Restaurants in Lombard
Price range: US$1 - US$20
Cuisines: Italian, Fast food
Description: Buona is a quick casual restaurant chain that features Original Italian Beef, Pizza, Burgers, Hot Dogs, Sandwiches and Salads. The first Buona restaurant was established in Berwyn, IL in 1981, by Buonavolanto Patriarch Joe Buonavolanto, Sr. He was among the group of Italian Americans who perfected Chicago's original Italian beef. The menu is a blend of old-school Chicago classics and next-generation menu choices - made from scratch with fresh ingredients. While the menu has expanded, the original beef recipe has not been compromised - for the three generations of Buonavolantos who are active in the company, compromise and quality are never uttered in the same breath.

Very good fresh beef and salads. They have 3 different sizes of each sandwich which is great for the not so hungry and the extra hungry to be able to get a larger or smaller meal. They also offer a "completo" that includes fries or a salad and a drink for just a little more. Their side ceasars salad is one of the best I've had and its only about $2.50.

This is a great family counter service restaurant. I have never been disappointed with their food. They have very tasty fries and a great selection of food from pizza to burgers and salads. The staff is always very friendly.

AMAZING quality in their Italian beef -- even the turkey and other sandwiches. Pepper-and-egg sandwiches (Fridays) are also a special treat! Super salad selections. You can also get take-home packs. Authentic Chicago right here! Get the Big Beef wet with sweet peppers -- it's worth the added cholesterol count!! =) Blow off Portillo's and visit Buona instead! Why can't these folks be nationwide...???
