  • Alondra Hot Wings
    Hot wings, New York-style pizza, and Philly steak sandwiches may be the signature foods of the east coast, but it's hard to imagine any restaurant treating them with more reverence than west-coast franchise Alondra Hot Wings. The eponymous wings are the house specialty, hot and slathered in one of 18 sauces. Ranked on a scale from mild to atomic—which requires a waiver to order—the sauces also include flavors such as lemon pepper, spicy barbecue, maple syrup, and thai chili. Alondra's other major influence is written all over the menu—and the walls. Mug shots of famous mafiosi hang throughout the dining room, and the owners are so fascinated by the subject that their website even offers tutorials in mob history. Also from that old Italian-American milieu: pizzas built on from-scratch dough, bearing names such as The Godfather—a hearty amalgam of four meats—and the Little Italy, which flecks chicken breast with basil. Draft beer and wine help mouths cool down after biting into a hot wing or almost insulting the ghost of Al Capone.

  • Al's Italian Beef
    It was 1938, and America was still in the throes of the Great Depression. To make his already-well-loved roast beef last longer, sandwich-smith Al Ferrari began to slice it extra thin. Clasped between thick italian bread and dripping with gravy, Al's first sandwiches were sold in the neighborhood food stand he co-owned with his sister and her husband. Later, they opened their first eatery in Chicago's Little Italy, where they also served hot dogs, fresh cut fries, and italian and polish sausages. The popularity of these italian-beef sandwiches has grown exponentially, and today, franchises have popped up across the country, still using the same recipe that was created in Al's kitchen all those years ago. So what goes into Chicago's favorite sandwich? The Bread Al's Italian Beef sources its french rolls from Gonella Baking Co. Hearty enough to soak up gravy without falling apart, yet soft enough to remain pleasantly toothsome, the pillowy bread is the basis for each and every italian beef. The Peppers If you request "sweet" peppers, expect bright-green slivers of house-roasted bell peppers. An order of "hot" peppers tops sandwiches with giardiniera, celery, and bell peppers soaked in a secret seasoning blend that includes garlic and crushed red pepper. Both bring out the meat's natural flavors. The Beef The kitchen roasts top sirloin, then slices it so thin, you could wear it as sunglasses. It still remains flavorful and juicy. The Gravy This is no thanksgiving gravy, but an aromatic jus made from the roasting juices and another secret blend of spices. How much of the gravy you'd like is up to you: "regular" means the meat is swished through the gravy before it's put on the bun; "wet" sees the gravy ladled over the bread; "dipped" means the entire sandwich is dunked into the pot.
