Italian Beef (Chicago Style)

Used to enjoy Windy City Beef, before they closed, what's the best sport for real Chicago style Italian beef now?

Speaking of sandwiches... any great Torta's in the area?

  1. hot dog heaven on sunrise and andrews ft lauderdale hands down the best authentic around

    1. Hot Dogopolis is Boca makes real Chicago hot dogs and Italian Beef. Not being from Chicago, I do not know how good it is. Friends from Chicago say the dogs are really good and the beef is OK.

      1. Fat Lou's in Hallandale/Pembroke Park makes good Italian beef. I'm no expert, but I used to go with a friend from Chicago and he seemed to think it was legit.

        As for tortas, I really like Taqueria Morelia down in Florida City, especially the torta de suadero. Mi Rinconcito Mexicano in Little Havana is also good.

        1. I 2nd Fat Lou's on Hallandale bch blvd. Terrific Italian beef sandwich, we drive 1/2 hour to get there!!!

          1. Was able to get to Fat Lou's ... and you guys are correct... an excellent Italian Beeft! Chicago would be proud!
