Al’s Italian Beef For a Taste of Chicago

als1by Nancy Boyce

The long waited tastes from back home of Chicago has arrived this year with Al’s Italian Beef in Dallas and the newly opened Gino’s East pizzeria in Arlington. I was the very first customer at Al’s Italian Beef when it opened in February. First bite of the true Chicago dreams to get that taste in their mouths again from back home right in their backyards here in Dallas-Fort Worth.

Al’s Italian beef proved to Texas how many Chicagoans miss their favorites when they ran out of food the very first week in February. Folks coming in from all over the metroplex and buying everything they could, cooked or not, I was told. They just bought all the tamales right from the freezer.   Continue reading

Chicagoland’s Al’s Italian Beef Coming To Addison

Considered one of the best sandwiches in America, the Italian Beef is certainly hard to beat. The sandwich is made up of thin slices of seasoned roast beef, dripping with meat juices, on a dense, long Italian-style roll. The bread itself is often dipped into the juices the meat is cooked in, and topped off with Chicago-style giardiniera (called “hot”) or sauteed, green Italian sweet peppers (called “sweet”).

Over the years the Chicago family moved a tiny stand through out Little Italy, and settled at its current location, 1078 West Taylor. Al’s Italian Beef is legendary in those parts and across the states where Chicago expats compare interloping sandwich makers to their beloved original.    Continue reading
