Success! Thanks for posting your review of Michael's Italian Beef & Sausage Co. You’ve done the world some good today.

Chicago style deserves a real place in Portland. This ain't

I grew up in Chicago. I had some terrible sandwiches there over the years, but nothing so horrible as my Michal's experience. I ordered an Italian beef sandwich hoping for a juicy dripping flavorful sandwich like the good ones I remember, or at least an attempt to fake something similar to places in Chi. What I got was dry crumbly bread with steakums. When I asked for some au jus, I got the classic 'deer in the head... view more

Great food, Great prices

I have been going to Michael's for over 10 years now. I can’t attest that I actually know authentic Chicago cuisine, as I am not from Chicago. But, I know a good sandwich when I eat one and Michael's is a damn good sandwich. \r \r They make their own sausage. They make their own Italian beef. They make their own pepper garnish mixes. There is a lot of hard work and care in the products from Michael's, and it shows.... view more

Fantastic sandwiches A++++

I have to say I am a little surprised at the negative remarks. I have been going to Michael's for over twenty years and have never had anything but a positive experiences. I have brought many friends and family here and they also LOVE the place. The best italian beef in the city. Even my three year old loves it! It is a slice of chicago. For those with bad experiences with the owner and staff I would say take it wi... view more

Owner nuts; food OK

I grew up in Chicago, and I've had some great Italian beefs there; Michael's is mediocre. Mind you, when you live far from Chitown, Michael's is heaven-sent, but he wouldn't do well in Chicago. I will say that his fries are superb, however. His so-called Chicago hot dogs aren't fully authentic, but they're about as good as they get in Oregon. Now, Michael, on the other hand, is a raving lunatic, even by Chicago s... view more

First time today.Had a beef sandwich with peppers and grilled onions.Good roll but small.The meat was good but not spicy enough fo my taste.Perfect fries and a lot of them.Was hoping for a beer but was told that beer is served after 2 on week days and on Saturday? How weird is that? Will go back to try the sausage next time with a cold one.

If you are in the mood for juicy and flavorful, you have to try this place.

I am not from Chicago. But if I were, and this is the native food, I'd be happy. The hot roast beef isn't for those who like rare, but it doesn't matter because the meat is tender and juicy and the au jus accompanying both the beef and sausage is amazing, as it sops the bread and drips down on your paper wrapping, in which you can use to dip your AMAZING French Fries. My son thought the fries were even better tha... view more

Fantastic. Not quite Mr. Beef, but good.

This place is wonderful. Good food. Fair prices. Sports on the TV, but not the main event. And, yes, the food is just like you get in Chicago, only better than most places in Chicago. Yes, the owner's banter is far right wing, but that's a part of the entertainment and charm. Enjoy it for what it is. Life is too short to be so easily offended. And it's too short to miss out on the good food at Michael's.

Beware of the offensive counter troll

It was the first visit for both my friend & I who were delighted at the food smells when we entered but that was the only delight we experienced. The miserable, mentally disturbed troll who is supposedly the owner and sits at the front counter said something related to a close encounter about what my friend and I could do to one another. This happened only after we paid. I was stunned and ignored him not believing... view more

The Right Taste of a Chicago style deli

We were driving up Sandy Blvd just short of the Burnside intersection and noticed Michael's. Probably made an illegal turn into their parking lot, and attracted by the great smell of deliciously cooking food, we headed to the front door. They had a help wanted sign in the window which isn't always a good harbinger. Fortunately we had a pleasant greeting, and after asking what we should try, the Chicago style Combo s... view more

wrong taste

This skeezy joint is last on the list if you want plain old goodnes.The sick feeling after eating had me yearning for a tastey Big Mac, and I have not ate at Mcdonald for 10 years. i walk in and this Old man charges me a dollar on my card for getting a sandwich. Odd service and odd looks coming from all directions. The steak was narley and the jarred green peppers had changed colors like a leaf in spring. Bread was g... view more
