I got the steak sandwich normally come with the meat and cheese. I added pepper jack peppers, mushrooms, pickles. It was very amazing honestly i will be getting that same sandwich again multiple times. waiting time was very good they said 45 mins for delivery but it only took about 15 to 20 mins after the call ended. I'm a sous chef and quality means alot to me. By far the best steak sandwich I have had in awhile!

I ordered a 12" pizza with my favorite toppings plus extra cheese and it was absolutely DELICIOUS. I could have eaten the entire pizza by myself in one sitting. Wish I would have ordered a bigger size to have more leftovers. The garlic butter crust was perfect. This is one pizza place that knows what "extra cheese" means. Very, very tasty.

The sandwiches are larger and taste even better than the original. Keep up the great work Jimbos!

One of a kind steak n cheese sandwich! The steak n sausage combo is also one of central Illinois's best kept secrets. The signature potato salad you cannot find anywhere else. The staff is friendly and eager to please. Great daily specials can be found on facebook.

These guys rock! Great Pizza n Wings :) The $3 lunch special is amazing, a jumbo fresh slice with 2 toppings and a 20oz drink for just 3 bucks. Dad loves the potato salad and Steak n Cheese.

Sandwiches are like no other place, a must try if you have never ate here. Cheaper that LaGondola jand Chicago Hut without the grease. I use the call for no wait pickup. 353-9757

the italian steak is good but after ordering several and other friends telling me the same, I wont be ordering anymore
You pay more but there is not the amount of steak on the sandwiches as when the original owner and second owner put on the sandwiches,, found a great italian beef with tons of meat at avantis for the same price

1/31/2013 i tried to order some food for the family and waited and waited and waited and waited nearly 22 minutes on the phone. I loved this place customer service is horrible

review_stars 10/24/2012 - FoodFan
Same amazing food! The one of a kind Italian Steaks are made to order and exactly what you remember from your childhood! The potato salad is very unique and tasty. I tried the spaghetti entree and garlic bread sticks and they were very flavorful and enough to feed two. The kids had the pizza and they keep asking to go back.
Highly recommend. Friendly staff and great customer service.

I ate here recently 10/20/2012 .Had the pasta bake,(it had no sauce to speak of Completely dry)If you like the taste of spaghetti noodles and barely any sauce,this is for you. Had the bread-sticks . Same problem .(no flavor) cheese dipping sauce (bland).Had the jumbo wings Inappropriately named ,very small and soggy. You got my money once.Never again !
