Bestest, Greatest!!

The best Italian Beef ever! Nothing fancy but good food. You won't be sorry. I asked if they would make our wedding - it is THAT good!

Decent Italian beef... cash only

The opposite of fancy, this place looks like it's about to go out of business... but no, my friends, In fact I am told by the locals they have the best italian beef in town, and are quite popular! I will say I liked my sandwich, and the hot pepper relish was good- spicy but not too hot. But I wouldnt say it was the best I've ever had. It was good...and worth a visit. But take it for what it is... Also, they are CASH only, which is annoying.

where's the beef?

Nice place if you like foodborne illness. Ick! You're safer at Al's or frankly most of the mom and pops in the city consideing they all buy the same stuff (e.g. presliced Vienna beef and either Marconi or Il Primo Giardiniera and Turano;s or Gonnella--I mean how different can it be?) Gottta love food network for providing fake hype and marketing for what boils down to a reheated product from a restaurant supply vendor. I swear it's like music, people just take what's handed to them by the media. Good luck with that!

The Truthful Truth About Mr. Beef on Orleans

Visited yesterday, after read suggestions for a ""real"" traditional eating place and excellent italian beef. Reality quite different...if ""traditional"" means doubtful cleaning, unsympathetic approach and 15 USD for a mediocre sandwich + fries + soda menu You are in the right place!

The Real Chicago Italian Beef

I've been coming here for 20 years. I'm so lucky I don't live in Chicago anymore, otherwise I'd be 100 pounds heavier. I'd eat here every day if you let me. The Beefs are the best. Double dipped is the way with hot peppers.. oh man, if it wasn't freezing out there right now I'd get on a plane and come grab one right now. my mouth is watering just writing this review.

They have a huge "dining room". Well it's a long picnic style table the runs the length of the room, where everyone sits down, and eats. not talk, just eat, who can talk with all the beefy juicy goodness dripping down your arm.. The room is covered with Chicago paraphernalia and there Blues Brother "statue" thingy at the end of the room.

Anyone that makes a visit to Chicago needs to experience this place, and if you don't like it, well then I guess you wouldn't make a good Chicagoan.

Best Italian Beef Sandwich in the US

We're pretty sure, anyway - it was awesome. The shop is tiny and the guys behind the counter are characters. Lose the snobby attitude if you have one - they won't stand for it, and neither will the rest of the patrons. This is the kind of place that people frequent - once you go, you want to go back. Get your beef with sweet or hot peppers - we can't decide which is better.

and the turkey sandwich is good too!

I had the turkey sandwich here once and it was fantastic! I think it had about 8 lbs. of meat in it.

Look to the Right at all the Best of Citysearches

The Italian Beef in Chicago is like the Cheesesteak in Philly. There will be five different places saying they've got the best one, when there is really only one place. For the cheesesteak, that's Pat's. In Chicago, the Italian Beef lives at Mr. Beef. I went looking for an Italian Beef and I saw a lot of posers but no real italian beef stands. When you get to Mr. Beef, it looks like a place that slings high quality Italian Beef. No frills, no accoutrements. Dudes slinging beef and talking trash: the sign of quality. The pictures on the wall at the Orleans location are also a good indication that you're in for something magical. The sandwich was magical and I didn't even get it done right (I'm not a hot pepper person). Juicy, tender, packed with meat, and well seasoned. I can't give it enough complements. I also enjoyed the fries: thin and crispy and didn't need ketchup, which is a veritable trifecta for me. I had been hungry since morning and I'm good to go. If the sandwich was any larger, I'd say it was too big. Mr. Beef= a Chicago Establishment. I look forwards to eating many more beefs there.

Best Beef Sandwich, Best Rib-Eye Steak Sandwich, and Best Burger...All at one place?

Best Beef Sandwich, Best Rib-Eye Steak Sandwich, and Best Burger...All at one place? Yes it's true !!! Forget about all the other beef joints...This is the best place (in the city of Italian Beef), to eat the best beef sandwich of all. A ""no brain-er"", and a ""no doubt-er""...Mr. Beef on Orleans is by far the best. While all the other joints are skimping, and selling a sandwich that wouldn't fill up a 6 yr-old, Mr Beef still piles it on....(The way Italian Beef was made to be eaten) !!!
And not only is it the right amount...It' truly seasoned to perfection, delicious and tasty. Just the right spices, and just enough of them make this the best Italian Beef in Chicago. Period.
You also might want to try the amazingly tender and deliciousCharbroiled Rib-Eye Steak Sandwich, and the fantastic Char Brioled Hamburgers. Whatever you order ....You won't be disappointed...Not at ""Mr. Beef""!!! I Rate This A Perfect 10
