Al's Beef is dedicated to preserving what this country has come to recognize as a true food icon. When the History Channel produced their 2-hour "History of Food in America" documentary, Al's Beef was the only Chicago restaurant featured. When Gourmet magazine decided to do a story on the Italian beef sensation, it was Al's Beef that was featured in a 4-page spread. And when Travel and Leisure magazine ran their "Top 10 Sandwiches in America"… you guessed it, it was Al's Beef that was picked. In March of 2008, Esquire Magazine named the Al’s Italian Beef sandwich as one of “the Best Sandwiches in America.” What more could you want, besides a juicy Al’s Italian Beef.
