I lived in Chicago my whole life and just recently relocated to San Antonio. Their Italian Beefs are just as good as Taylor/Maxwell St. It's nice to have a taste of home. The restaurant was a little hard to find though. It is hidden in a nook inside the shopping center. They have an outdoor seatng area on a deck, which is really nice for a cool summer night.
As a native of Chicago, I am extremely fond of Italian beef sandwiches and it's usually a struggle to find a quality product outside of Chicago. I must say that Donnie's Italian beef has all the qualities of a beef sandwich I'd get in Chicago. Well done Donnie's ... thanks for getting it right!!!
Lived all my life in Chicago, and about a year ago moved to San Antonio. I have to say this place is awesome!!! I felt right at home. I can now say I have the best of both worlds..... great weather and great Chicago style fast food joint.
