Al's opened recently in the East Loop as well (Jackson and Wabash).  DMBLunch?

If you concentrate you can feel BH's asshurtedness at being marooned in Brolumbus...we should have a ShoutLunch just to spite him.

Was actually kind of surprised to learn that this parochial food item doesn't have its own thread.  

I was just merely intending to point out that Al's is opening up a restaurant by Wrigley (Clark/Newport/Sheffield).; however, since I've found myself with the duty of starting this thread, allow me to throw it out there--what is the best beef in Chicago?  Portillo's?  Al's?  Mr. Beef?  Roma?  

My vote is Al's, but Portillo's consistency from restaurant-to-restaurant is better....

The Al'sin Evanston went tits-up. Thanks for holding up your end, meatball.

Hey I went there once.  It was okay.  Al's, for some weird reason in my experience, doesn't always carry the same quality from location to location.  The one on Touhy in Niles is also meh. Lou Malnati's is the same way.

Portillo's on the other hand, has got it knocked, no matter which one you go to.

So I think we've reached the point where MLB teams have hired every last one of the big/innovative brains that the old BP produced, and now we're left with a bunch of navel-gazing 25 year old chuckleheads.

There's an Al's in Scottsdale now, too.

Went once, pretty excellent - can confidently say it's the best beef in Arizona.

It did. There was a discussion of Mr. Beef there.

That the beef thread didn't survive the jaws of Mr. Ratto is the least surprising something something since I ruined a thread with a rap video that you guys didn't like.

Bump for the solid Buona Beef sold for $8.25 at Wrigley Field. Best food option this side of the Nacho Helmet.

Unless you're in the Bleachers, in which case you've still got Hot Doug's. And getting into the Bleachers from Huey's seats is very easy, the tunnel from the new bullpen seats leads to the Bleacher concourse behind where the people checking tickets are set up.

Wait, what?  I always thought entry to the Bleachers from the grandstand was prohibited (but not vice-versa).

Yeah, but the new tunnel from the bullpen (in front of the 100 level) puts you down in teh concourse behind where they're checking tickets. You can ease right over.

Which I'd recommend, if only to see the cool display cases they have set up there.
