Re:Mr. Beef rumor
nocarolina, although I'm not a big fan of Mr. Beef, I never like to see any small business go under, especially one with as much history as Mr. Beef.
On the other hand if you're concerned about losing a great resource for Italian beef sandwiches, stop in at Johnnie's up on North Avenue in Elmwood Park. They've got what I consider to be the ultimate Chicago style Italian beef. In addition to their sandwiches, they make their own Italian lemonade ice which beats out just about anyone else in town.
