Took the non Chicagoan girlfriend here for her first beef ever. I have been coming here since I was a kid and still think its the best beef in town. New owners, same great food-- get your beef smothered in juice and enjoy with just-right fresh cut fries.
Something is very different about Romas and I mean that in a good way. I ate here more than a few times. Beef and fries were good, just always seemed expensive, which you recieved with a smug attitude. The beefs and fries are taste the same but without that attitude. They also added new items to the menu witch is not a suprise since the old menu was very minimal before.
This is my FAVORITE beef of all time. I heart all beefs. It's an illness for me. Seriously. Like I will eat them if I'm not hungry and just had three meals. It's that good. It's the same workers, same vibe, same location since I was little. It's awesome. I stick to the tried and true, juicy beef hot. Easy and great. Enjoy.
The best beef in Chicago, Romas should be mentioned along with the places down town that get all the press. Nothing they do is any better than Romas,...Great Fries and and Gardinaria. The place is an institution in that area and has been there forever, it the first place I ever had a beef and it is the sandwich that I judge all other by. Years ago we moved to Michigan and would comeback to the area and fill a cooler with beefs to freeze and eat throughout the year. Plus Dont miss the Green River the way it was meant to be non carbonated in the drink machine! I would go just for that.
Not the best Italian grub, but pretty damn good for a little hole in the wall!
I love Roma's food. Their Italian Beef is awesome. I eat here frequently and I never get tired of it. It's also great that they take credit cards! I really don't have much more to say other than I've never been dissapointed with the food.
