I lived in the mid-west for a while years ago and miss some of the indigenous food, to include Italian beef. I saw the reviews and decided to try Spalla's. It was an excellent dining experience! I had the Chicago Italian beef sandwich with provolone and the spicy giardiniera; it was excellent! They also have a great selection of specialty hot dogs, including a Chicago dog, Beantown dog, Coney Island, BBQ, etc,, Italian sausage, and a variety of salads. There was Ritter chocolate, eastern European drinks, and even home made Italian ice. I'm looking forward to going back and perhaps trying the meatballs (due to the reviews), though I'm not sure I can pass the Chicago beef. The folks running the place were great as well, and I even got a refresher with the limited Russian I remember via the gentleman behind the counter. Give it a shot, you WILL go back!
