There is nothing more Chicago than Italian beef, or more delicious and hearty. Luckily, residents don’t have to go very far from our apartments in Algonquin to get their sandwich fix. We’ve done our research and found the top three places to get Italian beef around our apartments in Algonquin.

Chubby’s Gyros

Yes, the name says gyros, but we promise, their Italian beef sandwiches are not to be missed. Customers say they have some of the best in the area. This family-run restaurant has been feeding residents of Algonquin for more than a decade. Their generous portions and modest prices ensure their local cult-status. If you are not in the mood for a traditional beef sandwich, try their BBQ beef, which features thinly sliced roast beef piled high with BBQ sauce drizzled on top.


BUBS SUBS is a female and veteran-run local restaurant serving up quality Chicago classics. Customers claim the beef is so good, it beats out local favorite Portillo’s. What really sets BUBS apart is the homemade giardiniera. This spicy relish goes great on their thinly sliced and perfectly seasoned beef. If you want a twist on the classic sandwich, try the “El Niño” which is sure to ignite your senses. The sandwich comes with pepper jack cheese, chipotle mayo, hot sauce, and of course, their homemade giardiniera. Just make sure you have some water handy.

Mr. A’s Italian Beef

If you’ve lived around the area for a while, chances are you already know about Mr. A’s. They have been a staple in Crystal Lake for more than 50 years, building delicious sandwiches since 1968. The quality of the ingredients is what keeps people coming back. Each morning a fresh batch of Italian beef is made using the secret family recipe. Top it off with some homemade giardiniera for one of the best Italian beef sandwiches in Algonquin.
