Johnnies Beef, The Best there is, Elmwood Park Illinois
On North Avenue a few blocks west of Harlem is the mecca of Italian beef sandwiches Johnnies. It is an old school beef stand no indoor seating just a counter and winter & summer you will often find the lot full and a line out the door. I don’t no how the other food is because I can never not have a beef because they are that good. I have had their lemon ice and that is first rate as well. And if you really like eating there are three great restaurants (Cuban, Italian/pizza, & Chinese) All in the next block.
This is one of a series of videos we will be doing on outstanding non-mega chain fast food joints in the Chicago area.
