Hi Kathy,  It's like turning over a rock and finding gold.  There are hidden gems everywhere. I try all the localy owned places and many times they are a lot better than the big name places

There is something very special about a really great Italian Beef Sandwich. There is a place in the NW Chicago suburbs that makes a fantastic Italian Beef. This past week I ordered online from their menu and had them ship to two different birthday celebrants in Orlando. The recipients each received their 8 sandwiches in two days and were delighted -  (having lived in Chicagoland, they craved this particular Italian Beef Sandwich). The pictures and links of your REAL ITALIAN BEEF DELI  reminded me. It looks like a fantastic place, also, Kathy. Lucky you to hsve discovered this gem.
