Mickey’s Drive-In (address and info)
Their gravy isn't as multidimensional as some, but even so, the combo, with its spicy, fat sausage, proves to be more than the sum of its parts. Anyway, the steady stream of customers, even at off-peak hours, shows it’s a Western suburban favorite.
Novi’s Beef (address and info)
Bright spices set both the beef and the giardiniera a cut above at this stand on Ogden Ave, which also conducts a large catering business in the area.
Dukes Drive-In (address and info)
The gravy is especially good here, like a good beef soup, but the best thing is that they’re one of the few who grill their combo sausages over live charcoal. Watch for classic car nights (thanks to the rare, genuinely spacious parking lot).
