Chicago-style Italian Beef

Does anyone know where I can get authentic Chicago-style Italian Beef in South Florida? I live in SE Florida, but would consider driving to SW Florida for the real thing. It cost me over $60 (w/o shipping) to order Portillo's Italian Beef from Chicago as a holiday gift for my husband this year.
Good Luck! Beefs are hard to find on that coast. I lived over there for 5 years and found 1 spot.
I hear there are more places, but I could not find them.
It was in Deerfield Beach. I believe it was called Sals. The other was named Hot Dog heaven that had a good dog,but no beefs. There are more on the west coast due to all the former Chicagoans here.

Hot-Dog-opolis at 6020 N. Federal Hwy Boca Raton, FL 33432, has Italian Beef on their menu. This just recently opened up. I can't vouch for the beef, but I had a Chicago dog and it was exactly the way it was supposed to be. I'm from Chicago, so I know a good Chicago hot dog. The fries are fresh cut and delicious, too.
