Cubs fans (and, of course, anyone else) can unite around a Chicago favorite: Italian beef subs. The Italian beef sub is served "dipped" in gravy and comes with sweet peppers and homemade rough-cut fries. Giardiniera (hot, pickled vegetables) and other toppings are available on the condiments bar. The place also serves a mean meatball sandwich with marinara sauce and a great Italian sausage sandwich. Chicago-style hot dogs and a Polish dog with grilled onions are also not to be missed.
