We visit Tony's regularly, because the beer is cold, the food is on point, and the people are fun. I like my Italian Beef hot and wet, but it comes many ways. Must try the Chicago Dog. Chrissy and Kim are always a delight. They are the heart of the place. Thank you for keeping the essence of the original... More

My wife got the hot dog Chicago style with sport peppers. We took a bite from each other's sandwich and agreed that they were... More

Great Italian beef at a great price. Try the beef sandwich wet! I have never tried the hot dogs but others say they are very good.

If you are looking for authentic Chicago Italian Beef look no further. Purely lunchtime place, bare bones, no frills, add onion rings.

The best Italian beef I've had in ages outside of Chicago. I highly recommend that you go here and try one and ask for a wet. He'll explain when you get their. Great Italian sausage and polish sausage. All the food here is spot on. I highly highly recommend this place for lunch

So I was shocked when I said lets get beef sandwiches and everyone was like what? Literally a couple of Floridians never had them, lol. Well this place did a great job. My family also loved the tamales but the beef dipped with some mozzarella cheese was so good! I don't like a really spicy beef and this was perfect... More

I was in the mood for hot dogs and I know this Chicago style greasy spoon had them. So I sat at the counter and ordered two Chicago style with the works: relish, mustard, pickle spears, peppers and celery salt. Delicious! The dogs had the right amount of snap you'd expect from a good hot dog. I asked for a... More
