When Pamela McKenna moved to Idaho after living in Chicago for more than two decades, she immediately began to pine for the Windy City foods she'd grown to love. There wasn't a deep-dish pizza or an italian beef sandwich to be found. But then, as luck would have it, she met Ron Laskowski, a Sicilian Italian whose father spent roughly 40 years operating italian beef stands, according to the Idaho Press-Tribune. Laskowski shared his family recipes with McKenna, and Bono's Beef was born.
In addition to slow-cooked italian beef sandwiches served with giardiniera or sweet peppers, Bono's serves up Chicago favorites such as Vienna Beef hot dogs with natural casings and deep-dish pizzas with cornmeal crusts. In order to create authentic flavors, McKenna sources the majority of her meats and breads from Chicago, she told the Idaho Press-Tribune. Sports fans have an additional reason to visit: a Chicago sports-themed "man cave" inside the eatery.
