fast fun food – Jonnie's has the best beef in Chicago, as the line outside shows. Service is fast, because before you even have your money out, your food's ready to go. The lingo of Jonnie's makes it great too.

An Unfair Competition – I just jumped on this website and ironically enough, my two favorite cheap eats in the city are #1 and #2 (Potbelly and Johnnie's). These should be flip flopped however. Before my wife and I moved to chicago, she would take me to Johnnie's when we visited her parents here. Since then (4 years ago), I have only had two other restaurants' Italian Beef and I did not finish either one. This sandwich doesn't dissapoint from the seasonings in the beef, to the awesome bread, to the slow cooked and finely chopped sweet peppers. It'll make a grown man cry! Get the combo if you like Italian Sausage as well. In the summer, they've got a line like the Soup Nazi's in New York for their Italian Ice. Johnnie's is the king of restaurant row in Elmwood Park and that says a lot.

Great Beef, Cheap Price – Johnnie's Beef is the mecca of cheap eats for local college students. Anyone wanting a good portion for a very reasonable price has to try Johnnie's Beef. Be sure to have the Italian Ice!

Not Cheap – Johnies Beef is one of the best around, the only problem is you better order 3 if your hungry. The portions are much smaller than the average sandwich, and the price is the same.

Best Damn Beef Period! – If your looking for an Italian beef and you want it done right, come here. And remember, price is relative. You will definitely get what you pay for.

what used to be isn't – I have found that recently the samdwich size has become smaller and the sausage very over-done. The beef is still very good.I do not think that right now Johnnie's is worth the ride.

Good, but not close to the best! – Heard a lot about Johnnie's and went there a few weeks ago. The beef was definitely good, but didn't live up to all the hype. Too small and too expensive. For the BEST - go to Freddie's - at 31st and Union (just east of Halsted)! The beefs are easily twice the size (I'm NOT exaggerating), taste better and are still cheaper.
