Good nice size beef sandwiches depending on who makes them. A little higher priced. Sandwiches seem to have shrunk in size over the years. Good pepper and eggs on Fridays during lent ? (But a little on the greasy side.)

Hands down, the best beef or combo in Chicago, they have two locations and both are outstanding. First went to the original one back in 1976, started going here in the 90's. My folks and friends who live out of town go here for beef straight from the airport. Fries are great also.

Another local staple of Schiller Park. The beefs are awesome. I have cousins in Florida who when they come up to visit make it a point to grab a beef sandwich from here. And then take a gallon sized container to go for the drive back. The fries and cheese are the perfect side.

Good for a fast lunch Have been going there for years. The menu is hot dogs and beef sandwichs and such . The store is small and doesn't have much in the way of tables, so this isn't a big group place.

Went here with my friend for lunch. Really good beef sandwich. Place is really small. If you blink you will miss it. Not a lot of seating.

I stopped here after a flight into O'Hare. I found the food to be very good. The guy at the counter was a bit odd. But the beef and fries were very good.

So if it comes in a casing, I won't eat it, but Jay's beef hasn't disappointed me for over 35 years (literally). Dipped, with sweet or spicy is the only way to go. The beef is lean and the sandwiches are generous, my only problem is eating it too quickly.

Went to Jay's for the first time with my husband and 3 kids. The kids had chicken tenders which were large in size and overall pretty good. My husband and I had a beef sandwich with hot peppers. We both consider ourselves beef snobs with both Mr. Beef and Johnny's nearby. I have to say we were both happy. In... More
