Mr. Beef & Johnnie's Italian Beef

It has been awhile since I last had a Mr. Beef Italian beef sandwich.

Much better than I remember. But I feel confident in stating Johnnie's is the best because after Mr. Beef I drove west on North Ave until I stopped to get a Johnnie's.

Johnnie's is a better beef, has a deeper spice taste. However, maybe as it was towards the end of the lunch rush, but my sandwich had way too many bits/pcs of beef rather than slices. Therefore it was not a firm beef texture like I like. I've been to Johnnie's enough to know my sandwich was not the norm, but if it had been my first time, I would have been disappointed.

Thanks awbrig for joining me for lunch at Mr. Beef, it was a pleasure meeting you.
