Great food!! I go to Johnnie's often. You have to have the frozen italian lemonade no matter what season it is. Also they are the last of the restaurants to serve the 4-mini tamales. Don't miss it.

So many peoplecan't be wrong Super clean establishment. Good hot dogs. But my favorite is their Italian beefs. Most places give you a roast beef with no spices, not at Johnnie's there is a slight spiceyness to their beef and Italian Sausage. My husbands favorite is the Italian Sausage. PROS: Not Bland food CONS:

Not the same Last week we went back to Johnnies. Have been going since 1974. In our eyes it was the best Chicago offered. We only get there once a year, due to the distance we now have to travel. What a difference! The beef amount is very cheap compared to what is used to be. There was more sweet peppers then there was beef and it seems they were not as sweet as they used to be, with way too much vinegar. I will try Portillos, Als and Mr. Beef again. The italian lemonade is a good as ever. Mr heart is sad, first the lose of ... read more

Best Beef In Chicago! Johnnies Beef is a must try in my opinion. Not only is it the best Italian beef in the Chicago land area but it is an experience to see this famous place and how it works.The service is good and fast. The line is usually wrapped around the outside, but don't worry it takes very little time and is well worth the wait. They only have a counter inside but have outdoor seating during warm weather. You can't beat the prices and most important the taste. Try their delicious Italian ice too.

Not Great For the Price The price here is to high for the small sandwich you recieve. They don't pack the beef enough for your stomach to make you feel full. They need to do something before they lose their so called long lines during lunch time.

Hope your order isn't messed up because they don't care Went to Johnnie's yesterday - for the last time. I placed my order and my son ordered the rest of what we came for. I was standing next to him as he ordered. Although we did not see cheezy beefs on the menu he first ordered a cheezy beef combo and the person taking the order turned around and told his co-worker he then ordered a cheezy beef with sweet peppers and again he turned and told his co-worker. The last item was a combo. He also ordered three fries & a tamale. W... read more

The best beef Living in Chicago, you have to go to Johnnies at least once. The lines are always long but they work faster than any other business. This place is legendary for the best beef sandwiches in the world and today it still lives up to it's name.

Had an order of the Lemon Ice (~$1-2): sweet non-dairy ice with a soft texture. Food was delicious, staff was efficient, and the ambiance was no-nonsense.
