Since we had tried Frannies the night before while staying at one of the nearby airport hotels, we decided to go to Jay's for lunch. It provided a shaded table to eat outside which was good for us since our dog was along. Inside seating...More

Good nice size beef sandwiches depending on who makes them. A little higher priced. Sandwiches seem to have shrunk in size over the years. Good pepper and eggs on Fridays during lent ? (But a little on the greasy side.)

Hands down, the best beef or combo in Chicago, they have two locations and both are outstanding. First went to the original one back in 1976, started going here in the 90's. My folks and friends who live out of town go here for beef...More

Good for a fast lunch Have been going there for years. The menu is hot dogs and beef sandwichs and such . The store is small and doesn't have much in the way of tables, so this isn't a big group place.

Went here with my friend for lunch. Really good beef sandwich. Place is really small. If you blink you will miss it. Not a lot of seating.

I stopped here after a flight into O'Hare. I found the food to be very good. The guy at the counter was a bit odd. But the beef and fries were very good.

So if it comes in a casing, I won't eat it, but Jay's beef hasn't disappointed me for over 35 years (literally). Dipped, with sweet or spicy is the only way to go. The beef is lean and the sandwiches are generous, my only problem...More

Went to Jay's for the first time with my husband and 3 kids. The kids had chicken tenders which were large in size and overall pretty good. My husband and I had a beef sandwich with hot peppers. We both consider ourselves beef snobs with...More
