Bought the last Groupon without realizing that it was a Dine In Only. Was able to make it to lunch there on the last day coupon was valid. Like the call ahead service.

Our order was monumentally mixed up by the person who took the order on the intercom, but others in the restaurant were very accommodating about trying to straighten it all out. The main part of our meal (huge salads) were great; we really never did get our appetizer. I think, however, that this was a once only experience.

The clerk,heavy set dark-skinned girl, was on the phone right at the register arguing with her family about their problems and wouldn't even quit to wait on us. She talked about 15 minutes. We stepped back to the counter with questions about the Groupon which didn't show the full amount deducted and they hid behind the middle serving wall and wouldn't come over. Finally a girl came over and said rudely "We don't pay your taxes on the $20" I have never experienced this at any other store with Groupons. They also have filthy patio umbrellas with grime just hanging from them over the tables along with other things they haven't cleaned in a long time. Not a very friendly or appetizing.

Rude service. The workers messed up my order then got mad at me when I brought it to their attention.

I have had the pizza a couple times and it is not consistent. Yesterday, I nearly choked from the thick cheese. My son, who will eat almost anything, could barely eat it as well. It was almost not edible. I will not come back for the pizza but I will come back and try the beef and some of the other items.

From Our Editors

Al Ferreri, his sister Frances, and his brother-in-law Chris Pacelli Sr., developed their signature italian-beef sandwich out of necessity in 1938. The economic depression made meat harder to come by, so the trio of sandwich makers made their supplies last by cutting thinner slices of roast beef.

Their business started with them feeding guests at family weddings, delivering meals to local hospitals, and catering the country's first food fight, but they soon founded a more permanent curbside food stand in Chicago's Little Italy neighborhood. Despite their relatively humble beginnings, Al's Beef & Nancy's Pizzeria rapidly expanded and now boasts franchises throughout the Chicago area and across the country. The family business has garnered plentiful acclaim throughout the years, having been named Adam Richman's best sandwich in the Midwest on the Travel Channel show Best Sandwich in America in June 2012, appearing on Richman's Man v. Food and earning a place on Esquire's list of The Best Sandwiches in America in 2008.

The cooks begin every morning by roasting cuts of beef for the day, kneading fresh pizza dough, and cutting french fries with an industrial-strength laser pointer. The hearty italian-beef sandwiches can emerge from the kitchen with simple, unadorned meat or with blankets of melted cheese and spicy housemade giardiniera. The pizzas range from crispy thin-crust disks to deep-dish pies with 2.5-inch-thick crusts, supporting any combination of the 24 available toppings, which include oven-roasted garlic, baby spinach, and bacon.
