“Want Real Italian Beef?”
Review of Jay's Beef

Reviewed 1 August 2012

Whenever I get a craving for a real Italian Beef sandwich, I go to Jay's Beef. I have been all over the country and sampled "Italian Beef" and have been greatly disappointed. It just ain't the same! Jay's is located on Irving Park Rd and 25th Ave.near O'Hare Airport and Rosemont. It's a small place with about10 tables for 4. They make the usual sandwiches, but their real specialties are Italian Beef and Italian Combos (Beef & Sausage). You can order them "wet" or "dry" and add Green/Reed sweet peppers and/or hot giardiniera (Italian hot pepper relish in olive oil). Jay's does a large take out business, so don't get scared off if you see a line or the parking lot is full. So, if you want the real deal in Chicago Italian Beef, I recommend a visit to Jay's Beef.

I have been going to Jay's since grade school. By far, the best beef around. Great shakes too. Don't waste your time with other beef sandwiches. Jay's is the best!!!
