Venue Info

In a city known for its hot Italian beef sandwiches (most notably Al’s), Johnnie’s Beef is the only reason you need to head to Elmwood Park. Since 1961, Johnnie’s has been turning out Chicago-style hot dogs and Italian Beef sandwiches that stack up to the area’s best, to the point of drawing people outside of Chicago’s city limits and north to its suburban, cash-only counter. You don’t have to get the beef sandwich, but then what are you doing here? And nothing goes better with a juicy, hot beef sandwich like a cold Italian ice.
