Another well-known Chicago Italian beef sandwich restaurant!
There's some fierce competition in this section of River North with Portillo's across the street. Al's has that old school traditional sandwich shop feel.
Italian Beef with sweet peppers $7.39
I asked for the sandwich to be dipped and it was, but it still felt dry with the doughy bread and slightly dried beef. It was good, but I think I liked Portillo's more.
