Al's #1 Italian Beef - San Jose, CA
It's man food time! After many setbacks and delays, Al's Beef finally opened in San Jose in mid-April, and I got there today to try some of their specialties. Of course, there's the Italian beef--I appreciated that they offer a little version. This one's dipped with sweets:
I admit to preferring the flavor and spice of the jus from Johnnie's in Chicago; however, they're a long ways away!
What I loved, though, was their Maxwell Street Polish sausage, which came with grilled onions, mustard and sport peppers, and fries on the side.
Great snap on the sausage, delicious combination, and their fries were tasty--a lot like boardwalk fries from the east coast.
Being 20+ miles from my house, I'm not likely to get to Al's very often, but it's nice to know I can.
