You guys have a Dave Matthews Band group that meets for lunch now? Don't forget your lunchglasses!
If you concentrate you can feel BH's asshurtedness at being marooned in Brolumbus...we should have a ShoutLunch just to spite him.
Was actually kind of surprised to learn that this parochial food item doesn't have its own thread.
I was just merely intending to point out that Al's is opening up a restaurant by Wrigley (Clark/Newport/Sheffield).; however, since I've found myself with the duty of starting this thread, allow me to throw it out there--what is the best beef in Chicago? Portillo's? Al's? Mr. Beef? Roma?
My vote is Al's, but Portillo's consistency from restaurant-to-restaurant is better....
The Al'sin Evanston went tits-up. Thanks for holding up your end, meatball.
Hey I went there once. It was okay. Al's, for some weird reason in my experience, doesn't always carry the same quality from location to location. The one on Touhy in Niles is also meh. Lou Malnati's is the same way.
Portillo's on the other hand, has got it knocked, no matter which one you go to.
