Prepare to take your food to-go or belly up to a three-person stainless-steel bar at this wholly authentic, Chicago-style restaurant in an unassuming strip mall in Stafford. The Italian beef here is the best you'll get outside of Little Italy, and no hot dog place in town has better Chicago-style, all-beef hot dogs (no ketchup!). French fries are decent although frozen, and the greasy yet delicious pizza puff will stay with you for days. Don't forget to grab a cup of Italian ice on the way out. You can even purchase a tub of giardiniera - Italian-style pickled vegetables - to take with you if you want to attempt your very own Italian beef at home.
