Having lived in the city until 5 years ago, I admit being spoiled having quick access to some of the best Italian beef joints. In fact, I even worked at Roma's while attending college on Cicero avenue, which I still feel is the best place. You can't go wrong with the fresh cut froes either. Now, I love in the Gurnee area, and have yet to find a good homemade Italian beef. Every place I visit says they buy the beef from a supplier. And the french fries are frozen, not fresh like they serve at Roma's. Does anyone know of a good place in this area?
