Where’s the beef?

Who loves a good Italian beef sandwich?

An Italian beef is a sandwich of thin slices of seasoned roast beef, dripping with meat juices, on a dense, long Italian-style roll, which originated in Chicago where its history dates back at least to the 1930s.

Chicago is in love with great Italian beef & I wanted to share with you guys one of my favorite beef places in the entire world! MaMa D’s in Lemont, IL. I love going to the city for great food, but I live in the Chicagoland suburbs.  Sometimes it’s hard to find great authentic food in the suburbs of Chicago… But look no further! MaMa D’s is your place!

Everyone likes a Italian beef sandwich a little different.  I need mine wet with hot peppers.  I can literally eat MaMa D’s giardiniera by the spoonfuls! It’s that delicious. Sometimes I love adding a little mozzarella as well. Whichever way you eat it, MaMa D’s is by far my favorite! The beef is thin, the perfect spice blend, not too salty and literally makes my mouth water thinking about it!

I am also a huge 80’s fan & if you love the 80’s as much as I do, you will love the decor of MaMa D’s! 80’s movie & music posters all around! The atmosphere is friendly & you will see construction workers, businessmen, as well as families dine in daily.

The homemade Lemon Chicken (on the catering menu) is also one of my top picks from MaMa D’s! The chicken is incredibly tender with a lightly breaded layer of lemon & just amazingness! If you are in the area or want to make a trip for an outstanding beef, take a trip to Lemont, IL and be sure to go to MaMa Ds!

Even Steve Dolinsky from ABC Chicago Hungry Hound rated MaMa D’s Italian beef in the TOP 10!
