What people say

"Al's Italian Beef is a local legend, serving up iconic Italian beef sandwiches since 1938. They are most known for their slow-roasted Italian roast beef, thinly sliced and piled high on a toasted Italian roll. You can customize it "wet" dipped in gravy, "dry" with just a drizzle, or "dipped" for a happy medium. No reservations MONDAY - SATURDAY 10:30AM-12:00AM SUNDAY 10:30AM-9:00PM $"
