Johnnie's Beef | Other Suburbs West | Italian, American | Restaurant
A classic.

Our Review

Nobody goes to Johnnie's for anything but the Italian beef sandwich, which is so ambrosial you will soon cease to eat it anywhere else, because bad Italian beef shortens your life by blocking your arteries, and you want to live longer so you can eat more at Johnnie's. This somehow makes sense when you're there amid the place's check-cashing-center ambience. The homemade Italian ice isn't bad either. Cash only.
